What the heck are cookies?

Cookies are very small text files that are saved to your computer when you visit a website.   On our website we use these cookies to see and understand what you’re doing on our site and how you arrived there and think about how we could make the experience better and more targeted. We use cookies to understand how you’re using our website and how we can provide you with the best experience for your needs. Some of the cookies that we use are supplied by third parties for platforms that help us analyse, understand and reach our customers better.

Why do we use them?

We like to improve our website and the ways we help people reach it. Using cookies helps give us the information we need to be able to do this, such as which device you used to get there or which pages you were interested in. We might also use some cookies just to help the website work better for you, such as remembering your login details or language preferences.

We might also use something called web beacons or browser storage. These allow us to store some data across a number of times that you might use the site from the same device or tell us when you may have visited a particular piece of content such as an email or a newsletter.

The important thing to remember is that cookies aren’t necessarily bad for you or your computer. Cookies are simply a way of holding information about you that typically either help improve your use of a website or help feed into improvements for it and other communications in general.
