This site, like many others, uses small files called cookies to help customise your experience. Cookies are used in a number of ways and some of our website’s functionality simply wouldn’t work without them.
WHAT ARE ‘COOKIES’?
‘Cookies’ are small text files that are stored by the browser (e.g. Google Chrome, Safari or Microsoft Edge) on your computer or mobile phone. They allow websites to store such things as user preferences. You can think of cookies as providing a “memory” for the website, enabling it to recognise a user and respond appropriately.
