SO, WHAT ARE COOKIES?
While they are nowhere near as delicious as their crumbly real-world counterparts, website cookies are handy little things.
Cookies and similar technologies let us learn more about what people are doing when they use our site, and they help us remember when you've visit our site more than once. This all makes it easier for us to get you the information you need as quickly as possible. Importantly, cookies also help us keep our website safe and secure.
Don't worry, cookies can never be used to identify you. If we ever want to collect information that could personally identify you, we're totally up-front about it and make sure we get your permission first.
You can find out more about our different cookies below, and choose which ones you're OK with. Please note, blocking some types of cookies may impact your experience of our site.

They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
These cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.
These cookies may be set through our site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. They do not store directly personal information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.
These cookies allow 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.
