How we use Cookies

Cookies are small text files stored on your computer when you visit websites. We use cookies to help identify your computer so we can tailor your user experience and collect general information on how our website is used, which we use to help us improve it. There are two ‘flavours’ of Cookies – ‘Session’ cookies and ‘Persistent’ cookies. Session cookies are temporary and are deleted when you shut down your Web browser or turn off your computer. These are used to improve how you navigate through a website and, for example, to keep track of your shopping basket contents.‘Persistent’ cookies remain on your computer until manually deleted or when they reach an expiry date. They hold information that is useful if you revisit the website, such as login details and customizing your personal preferences. You can disable cookies already stored on your computer, but this may stop our website and others from functioning properly. It may also cause saved login details, for example, to be deleted, so ensure you have a note of them before deleting all cookies.

Non-essential Cookies
The following are not strictly necessary but are required to provide you with the best user experience and tell us, anonymously, which pages people find most interesting.
Functional Cookies. Typically used for Live Chat support (if available) and for tracking the pages you visit. Page tracking data is collated by Google on behalf of millions of website owners, providing anonymous data on which pages you visited, how you got there, the page you exited the website from and so on. It allows us to see which pages are more or less popular and helps us to make our website even better.
Targeting Cookies. These allow you, for example, to share pages with social networks such as Facebook (where applicable).

Identifying Cookies on your Computer
You can often identify the individual Cookies stored on your computer by visiting the Privacy Tools section of your Web browser – below are three examples of popular web browsers. You can opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites. Search on ‘Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on’ for the web browser plug-in. Where we have embedded a video clip delivered from our YouTube channel, a cookie is set but this does not store personally-identifiable information as the clips are embedded using YouTube’s privacy-enhanced mode. This mode restricts cookies set by YouTube. For more details search on ‘YouTube’s privacy-enhanced mode’.
