What is a cookie?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device.

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improve the user experience. We don’t use any cookies which customise our website based on your preferences (category 3) or targeting or advertising cookies which build up a profile of you (category 4) but the cookies we do use enhance your experience and enable us to improve the website.
