Third Party Cookies

We use cookies on this website. A cookie is a text file sent by a server to a browser and stored by the browser. The text file is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the server to identify and track the browser.

We may use session cookies to keep track of you whilst you navigate our website; we also use persistent cookies to enable our website to recognise you when you visit. Session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date.
