What is a website cookie?

A cookie is a file which your computer downloads along with a web page. It is used to pass information between the user (the person looking at the website) and the server (the computer running and managing the website). Most websites use cookies.

Cookie information is a collection of letter and number codes representing data from the simple (for example whether a user has seen a particular page in a website) to the sophisticated (including whether a user has provided feedback on a particular aspect of the website).

Why are cookies used?

Cookies allow a website to recognise a user's device. This means that if you look at the site on your phone and then on your laptop you may count as two different visitors. Sometimes the information is needed for a particular part of a website to work properly.

So-called 'third party' cookies often include information about which adverts you have been shown. We do not use any third party cookies on this site.

On the website we use cookies for the following reasons:

  • To check whether you've read the 'one time message' (The 'one time message' is a single line of text that is displayed at the top of this page if you haven't allowed us to place cookies on your device.)
  • To provide information about your visit such as to count the number of unique visitors and to see how they move around the site. This helps us to know which areas of the site are most valued and how best to update the site in the future.

Have I accepted cookies on this website?

Yes. You have accepted cookies on this website and in doing so you set a cookie to tell us you've accepted.
