1. What is a cookie?

1.1 Cookies are small text files downloaded and stored by your browser onto your computer. They are widely used in order to make websites work or work in a better, more efficient way. They can do this because websites can read and write these files, enabling them to recognise you and remember important information that will make your use of a website more convenient (e.g. by remembering your user preferences) such as your username and password, and they also allow us to improve our site.

1.2 We may work with third party organisations to provide the services on our Website. A third party is an organisation which is not hosted at the domain address in your browser when you visit our Website. These third parties may also use cookies on our Website and can also place cookies on your browser without you visiting their website directly. If you would like more information about third party cookies, please read section 3 below.

1.3 The two types of cookies used on our Website are known as "session" cookies and "persistent" cookies. These may be cookies which we use and/or a third party uses.

1.3.1 A session cookie is used each time you visit our Website to give you a session ID. We use this type of cookie to link your actions on our Website and each session cookie will only last for a browser session. Each browser session will start when you open your browser window and finish when you close your browser window. After your visit to our Website all session cookies are deleted. Every time you visit our Website you will have a different session ID.

1.3.2 A persistent cookie has a longer lifetime than a session cookie and lasts for the period of time specified in the cookie (this will vary from cookie to cookie). This type of cookie will not be deleted when you close your browser window and will be activated every time you visit our Website.

3.2 The cookies placed on your browser by such third parties may inform the third party organisations about your visit to our Website which may then be used by those organisations to deliver targeted messages and advertising to you. In all cases, these cookies are not within our control, we are not responsible for them and we have no access to the information that they gather.  Such cookies are subject to the third party organisations' own cookie policies.
