how we use cookies

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files of letters and numbers that are placed and stored on your computer by the websites you use. These files can be read by website servers and can be used to help identify you when you return to a website.

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, for example, remembering your preferences, recording what you have put in your shopping basket, and counting the number of people looking at a website.

This website uses cookies and similar technologies to provide you with a functional website and to give you a more personalised service.

We use the following cookies:

Essential cookies

We have one cookie which is used for operational reasons; it is strictly necessary for us to use this cookie in order the site to work. The cookie is set by our content management system and only lasts for the length of your visit.

Functionality cookies

We use some cookies for enhancing the search functionality on the site. This helps the website remember your selections and makes the search tool easier to use. None of these cookies last for longer than 5 minutes.

Analytical cookies

The other cookies we use are ‘analytical’ cookies. The analytical cookies we use contain an ID number which is used to uniquely identify your browser and track each site you visit that has Google Analytics enabled.

Our analytical cookies are operated by Google Analytics and store the following data:

  • time of visit, pages visited, and time spent on each page of the website
  • interactions with site-specific widgets
  • referring site details (such as the URL a user came through to arrive at the website)
  • type of web browser
  • type of operating system (OS)
  • flash version, JavaScript support, screen resolution, and screen colour processing ability
  • network location and IP address
  • document downloads
  • clicks on links leading to external websites
  • errors when users fill out forms
  • clicks on videos
  • ‘scroll depth’ (how far you scroll up or down on a page).

They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the site when they’re using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example by making sure users are finding what they need easily.

If you already have Google Analytics cookies, they will be updated with the latest information about your visit to our website. We cannot access these cookies and are not the data controller for information held by Google Analytics.
