Cookies Statement

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site. They also allow websites to respond to you as an individual by remembering your preferences. We use two types of cookie, “session’ and “persistent”. Session cookies only last for the duration of your using the website and are deleted when you close the browser. Persistent cookies outlast user sessions and stay on your computer until deleted or reach an expiry date.

The information below explains the cookies we use and why.

Necessary cookies

We use necessary cookies to make our site work, and they are essential for the basic functionality, security and accessibility of our website.

Third party cookies

We use Google Analytics cookies to collect statistical information about how visitors use our website. This type of cookie will only be stored on your computer with your consent, and you have the option to opt out, although doing so may affect your browsing experience. You will be able to block or delete cookies already set via your web browser. The information is used to compile reports and to help us improve the website, and is collected in a way that does not directly identify anyone. It includes the number of visitors to the website, where visitors have come to the website from and the pages they visited.

Google will store this information – you can read their Privacy Policy here:

We also use Facebook Pixel, which is a similar service that tracks user behaviour.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.
