What are cookies?

A cookie is a small piece of data (text file) that a website or app asks your browser to store on your device when you visit or interact with an email in order to remember information about you, such as whether or not you have consented to our use of cookies. These cookies are set by us and are called first party cookies. 

We also use third party cookies - these are cookies from a different domain than the domain of the website you are visiting or a domain that we do not control - for example to analyse traffic to our website.

How we use cookies

This website uses two types of cookies: persistent and session cookies. Persistent cookies are cookies that remain on your device for a specific period of time (as shown in the table below) or until you manually delete or object to them. Session cookies are cookies that expire at the end of the browser session (for example, when you leave our website and close your browser). 

We use cookies that are strictly necessary to (i) store user preferences (including cookie preferences), and (ii) secure our website and our services (e.g. to detect malicious brute force attacks). 

We use non-essential (not strictly necessary) cookies to observe and analyse traffic levels and other statistics on our website, which helps us to improve our website and your overall user experience. We only use non-essential cookies where we have your consent (see below). 

Cookies may be first party or third party, meaning they are managed by us (first party) or by another party (third party). Interactions with third party cookies on our website are governed by the third party's privacy and cookie policy as set out below. 

More information on the types of cookies we use can be found below.

Managing cookies

Upon your first visit to our website, and every six months thereafter, you will see a cookie banner on the home page that informs you of the reason for using cookies and asks you to agree to each non-essential cookie if you agree to our using them (or "Accept cookies"). If you do not agree, you can choose which ones to reject or accept, or you can choose to "Decline Cookies". 

You can change your cookie preferences via the cookie banner, where you have the option to opt in or out of the use of non-essential cookies on your device. However, you can also update your cookie preferences at any time via this button below:

However, most web browsers also offer the possibility to manage most cookies through the browser settings. For more information about cookies and how to see what cookies have been set, you can visit or consult.
