Cookies are small text files that are saved to your device or computer by websites you visit. Websites may use cookies to help do things like enabling enhanced functionality, remembering any settings or preferences you may have set, making things more relevant to you and providing information to the owners of the website. Cookies may also be used to help in serving you generic and/or personalised ads.

Some cookies may be absolutely necessary in order for websites to work and/or to make sure the website and your visit is kept safe and secure.

Cookies can be either session cookies, which means they are stored on your device only for that visit and deleted when you quit your browser/turn off your device, or persistent, which means they are kept on your device even after you quit your browser/turn off your device - usually for a set time period.

Cookies are just one type of technology that can store information on your device, but there are other similar technologies which include, but are not limited to, HTML5 web storage (local storage/session storage), indexedDB and service workers.

Some of these technologies can store things other than just text, such as images, or even copies of web pages so you can view them offline.

To keep things simple, 'Cookies' are used as an umbrella term for all the technologies that can store information on your device or computer.

We do not store any information in our cookies that personally identify you. The table below details which cookies and similar technologies we use across our websites and web applications:
