What are cookies?

Most websites use cookies to increase efficiency of use, which makes your visit to a website a more enjoyable experience. One of the tasks cookies perform is to enable a website to remember you. A website without cookies assumes you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page, so you have to keep repeating the login process. Cookies let you navigate easily between pages and store your preferences. In other words, cookies make everything faster, easier and more efficient.

On this site, we use cookies to remember information about your browsing habits, so that we can make it easier for you to access things like the on-line resources you use, your favourite pages, and how often you visit them. Cookies do not gather any information which is personally identifiable.

How do they work?

A cookie is a text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server; only that server can retrieve or read the cookie contents. Each cookie is unique to your web browser.

How to disable cookies

You can choose whether or not you accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept them, but if you prefer, your browser setting can be modified to decline them – the Help function will guide you through the process. Declining cookies will, however, prevent you from taking full advantage of the website. For more information, visit www.aboutcookies.org
