What are cookies

A cookie is a small text file that a website stores on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. This allows the website to remember the pages you have visited and your preferences, so you don’t have to re-enter them every time you visit the website.

Cookies can be either ‘permanent’ (persistent) cookies or ‘temporary’ (session) cookies. A permanent cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which will be stored by the browser and remain in effect until the cookie’s expiration date is set (unless deleted earlier). In contrast, a temporary cookie will disappear at the end of the user session when the web browser is closed.

This cookie statement explains the cookies we use, the purposes for which we use them, and the options you have to manage cookies.
