What Are Cookies?
Cookies are a small text file that is placed on your computer, tablet or mobile phone when you access our websites. They are not harmful to your devices (like a virus or malicious code) and allow you to use many of the useful features of our websites (like remembering your favourites).
In the table below we set out what cookies we use on our websites and how they are used. To read the table it is useful to know the following:
1. Cookies have a lifetime. Some only last until you close your browser or a short time. These are called 'session cookies'. Some last longer though, for example, to enable a website to recognise you when you return to them. These are called 'persistent cookies'.
2. Cookies placed directly by a website owner (like us) are known as 'first party cookies' and most modern websites also use technology provided by other people/businesses, for example to provide online advertising. Cookies placed by other parties are known as 'third party cookies'.

Please look out for these notices in future when you are using our website.
If you want any further information about our approach to cookies and similar technologies, our websites in general or have any other privacy questions relating to us, we'd be happy to help you.
