When you visit our website, the site asks your browser to store a small piece of data (text file) called a cookie on your computer, tablet or mobile phone. Cookies do lots of useful jobs. They help make websites work smoothly and provide information about how people browse.

The Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003 (PECR) covers the rules on cookies. PECR also covers the use of similar technologies for storing or accessing information, such as ‘Flash cookies’ and device fingerprinting. The ICO is responsible for enforcing these rules.

Organisations must provide clear and comprehensive information about the way they use cookies and ensure that for any cookie not strictly necessary for their website, they give you an appropriate means of consenting to that cookie being set on your device.

Cookies store or retrieve information on your browser, which might be about you, your preferences or your device but does not usually directly identify you.


We also use third-party cookies, which are cookies from a domain different from the domain of the website you are visiting, for our advertising and marketing efforts. More specifically, we use cookies and other tracking technologies for our social media cookies. 

We use buttons that let you share our pages on social networking websites. These buttons may place a third-party cookie on your device, which could gather usage information. 

  • Facebook
  • X
  • YouTube

To opt out of being tracked by the Facebook Social Media Button and Twitter Social Media Button on all the websites you visit, go to the General Account Settings of your Facebook and Twitter accounts, then click the opt-out link.


You can find more information about cookies and how to manage them at You may disable cookies by changing the settings on your browser. However, if you do so, this will affect your enjoyment of our site and we will no longer be able to offer to you a personalised service 

Some cookies are essential for making our website work well and cannot be turned off. All other cookies are turned off by default when you first visit our website, and you can choose to turn these on or turn them back off if you previously accepted these and have changed your mind. You can do this via our cookie banner or by clicking on “manage cookie preferences” at the top of this page to visit our cookie preference centre. You can also manage what cookies are stored on your computer directly by setting your browser to accept or reject certain cookies. However, blocking some types of cookies may mean some of the services or features on our sites won’t work properly.

Third-party cookies are set by someone else whose services we have added to our site, such as Google for measuring visits to our website. These are detailed in our cookie preference centre and all non-essential cookies (whether first or third-party) can be turned off. 

If you share a link to a page on one of our sites, the platform you share it on (for example, Facebook) may set a cookie on your browser. We have no control over third-party cookies set on other sites– you can turn them off, but not through us.

Remember that editing your cookie preferences will not remove any existing cookies from your browser. It’ll only affect the way cookies are used in future. If you want to remove any existing cookies you can do this via your browser settings.


You can use your web browser to:

  • delete all cookies;
  • block all cookies;
  • allow all cookies;
  • block ‘third-party’ cookies (ie, cookies set by online services other than the one you are visiting);
  • clear all cookies when you close the browser;
  • open a ‘private browsing’ / ‘incognito’ session, which allows you to browse the web without recording your browsing history or storing local data such as cookies (you should however be aware of the limitations of this feature in a privacy context); and
  • install add-ons and plugins that extend browser functionality.

They let you do things like login, move from page to page, and use our interactive tools. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work.

6.2. Performance/Analytical

These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous.

We never show adverts from third parties on our website. However, we do advertise our products and services, and you may see our adverts around the Internet too. Some cookies are set by our advertising partners, used to build a profile of your interests and to show you relevant adverts on other sites. Details of these cookies and our advertising partners can be found in our cookie preference centre. We use cookies to measure how well our adverts do, to tell us where you saw a particular advert, and to ensure you don’t see the same advert too many times.
