What are cookies
A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be downloaded to your computer, mobile or tablet when you visit a website or use an app. Cookies are widely used to make websites work more efficiently, remembering user preferences given and helping to identify ways to improve your overall experience. Other cookies are used to provide you with advertising which is more tailored to your interests. The cookies collect information in an anonymous form; no personal or sensitive information is stored in the browser cookies. They are just unique ids that provide information about the number of visits, where a visitor has come from and the pages they have visited. Cookies may also be used to ensure any advertisements you see online are more relevant to you. Cookies will also provide us with information about how our website is used so that we can make sure the website is as up-to-date, relevant and as error-free as possible.

Other tracking technologies
Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like tracking pixels. These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has visited our website or opened an email linking to the website. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within a website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to the website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of email marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functionality.
