What is a cookie?

A cookie consists of information sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser. Cookies are also used for the placement of advertising based on the user's interests and behaviour, and to control advertising content on our website.

Session cookies: temporary cookies that are deleted from your computer when you close your browser. We will use the session cookies to keep track of you whilst you navigate the website.

Persistent cookies: permanent cookies that remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date.
