Essential Cookies

We use cookies to make our website work properly. For example:

  • When we ask if you consent to cookies, we use a cookie to remember your choice so that you don’t see our cookies consent message on every page.
  • If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

There are two types of cookies:

  • A persistent cookie remains on your computer for a period of time to allow a website to recognise you when you return and present you with the appropriate content.
  • Session-specific cookies are deleted when you shut down your browser. These are used on sites where you log in; the cookie ensures that you stay logged in throughout that visit.
