Cookies Notice

This Cookies Notice (and the relevant website referenced) tell you everything that you need to know about how we use cookies. A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that are stored on your browser, the hard drive of your computer or mobile device, if you agree. This Cookies Notice was last updated on 16 October 2023; we may make changes to it at any time by posting a new copy of it on our website. Any changes made will take effect immediately.

A.  Different types of cookies

Cookies fall into two main categories: session cookies or persistent cookies.

  • Session cookies: These last for the duration of your visit to a website. They delete themselves when you close your browser.

  • Persistent cookies: These stay on your device when you close your browser.


These cookies are further broken down into four main types of cookies.

  • Strictly necessary cookies: These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into a secure area of our website.

  • Functionality cookies: These are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you and remember your preferences.

  • Analytical or performance cookies: These allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that our users, like you, are finding what they are looking for easily.

  • Marketing cookies: These cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the website you have followed. We will use this information to make our website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.

There are “first-party cookies” and “third party cookies”. First party cookies are set by us, the website owner. They are stored by the website. Third party cookies are set by someone other than us (i.e., a third-party supplier) and collects user data for the third party (and is stored on the third party’s server).


Some of our cookies collect data for more than one use. We will only use strictly necessary cookies for their essential purposes unless you have given us consent to any other uses that they have.


Please note that if more than one person uses your device, the choices set by others will apply to you as well unless you specifically change them when you are using your device. For example, if you share a computer with your family, you may see adverts based on websites they have visited as well as websites you have visited.
