This information is outlined as part of our efforts to comply with recent legislation and to ensure that we are open, honest and clear about user privacy.

You may notice the presence of different types of cookies generated on your visit to this website. We use three types of cookies:

• Session cookies, which are automatically deleted after every visit.

Sessions Cookies
These enable you to perform essential functions on the site, such as remembering a repeat form field item within a browsing session. In addition, they help by limiting the need to transfer information across the Internet. They are not stored on your computer and will expire when you terminate your browser session.
 

Persistent Cookies
These enable us to recognise anonymous repeat visitors to the site. By matching an anonymous, randomly generated identifier, a record can be taken of specific browsing information such as how you arrive at the site, the pages you view, options you select, and the path taken through the site. By monitoring this information we’re able to make improvements to the site, including the fixing of errors and the enhancement of content.
