  1. What Are Cookies?

  2. Cookies are small text files containing information that a website transfers to your device for record-keeping purposes, which allows us to analyse our site traffic patterns. As you navigate and interact with our site, certain information will be collected automatically. This data helps us to improve the content of our site.

    Any cookies set during your visit to this (and any other) website can be manually deleted through your browser options.

  3. Why Do We Use Cookies?

  4. We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our website to operate, and we refer to these as 'essential' or 'strictly necessary' cookies. Other cookies enable us and the third parties we work with to track and target the interests of visitors to our website, and we refer to these as 'performance' or 'functionality' cookies. Finally, third parties serve 'targeting' cookies through our website for analytics and other purposes. All of these instances are described in more detail below.

  6. Strictly Necessary Cookies

    These cookies are necessary to enable us to advise you of our Cookie Policy and cannot be switched off by us. They are only set in response to actions made by you, such as setting your privacy preferences. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies. The site is designed to work without them - please advise us if you experience any problems. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.

    Strictly Necessary Cookies Used and Their Lifespan

    • OptanonConsent - One year
      Set by the cookie compliance solution from OneTrust. It stores information about the categories of cookies our Website uses and whether visitors have given or withdrawn consent for the use of each category. This enables site owners to prevent cookies in each category from being set in the users browser, when consent is not given. The cookie has a normal lifespan of one year, so that returning visitors to the site will have their preferences remembered.
    • OptanonAlertBoxClosed - One year
      Set by OneTrust. It is set after visitors have seen a cookie information notice and in some cases only when they actively close the notice down. It enables the website not to show the message more than once to a user.

    Performance Cookies

    These cookies are all set by Google Analytics &/or Google Universal Analytics. They typically track visitor behaviour and measure site performance,allowing us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.

    Performance Cookies Used and Their Lifespan

    • _gat_gtag_[ID of website] - Two years
      Identification code of website for tracking visits.
    • __utmc - Session
      Tracks visitor behaviour and measures site performance. The cookie is destroyed when the user closes their browser.
    • _gid - 24 hours
      Google provides very little information about this cookie. It appears to store and update a unique value for each page visited.
    • _ga - Two years
      Used to distinguish unique users by assigning a randomly generated number as a client identifier. It is included in each page request in a site and used to calculate visitor, session and campaign data for the site's analytics reports.
    • __utma - Two years
      Used to calculate new and returning visitor statistics. The cookie is updated every time data is sent to Google Analytics.
    • __utmz - Six months
      Identifies the source of traffic to the site - so Google Analytics can tell site owners where visitors came from when arriving on the site.
    • __utmv - Two years
      Visitor segmentation cookie, which attempts to identify visitor as male, female, signed in, signed out, etc.
    • __utmt - Ten minutes
      According to Google's documentation, it is used to "throttle the request rate for the service - limiting the collection of data on high traffic sites". No, we're not sure what that means, either!
    • __utmb - 30 minutes
      Determines new sessions and visits and expires after 30 minutes. The cookie is updated every time data is sent to Google Analytics. Any activity by a user within the 30 minute life span will count as a single visit, even if the user leaves and then returns to the site. A return after 30 minutes will count as a new visit, but a returning visitor.
