cookie policy


This website uses Cookies and by accessing the site you are giving consent for Cookies to be placed on your computer or device. This is standard practice for most websites in order to help provide users with a better browser experience.

If you do not consent to the Cookies used on this website, you must disable them or refrain from using this site.


A Cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer or device. Each Cookie is unique to your web browser and contains an anonymous identifier so that a website can recognise you when you return using the same browser.

Most websites use Cookies in order to improve your user experience by enabling the site to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘Session Cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘Persistent Cookie’).

Cookies do a variety of different jobs, like storing your preferences, remembering you are logged in and generally improving your user experience. If a website does not use cookies, it will think you are a new user every time you visit.

Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting (‘1st Party Cookies’) or they may be set by a 3rd party plugin / module or software used by the site you are viewing (‘3rd Party Cookies’).


If you do not want to accept a cookie you can use your in-built browser or device settings to deny or accept individual or all cookies. The procedure varies depending on browser or device so please visit your browser or device’s settings or help section for more details.

Please be aware that some functionality on our websites requires the use of cookies, and as such, disabling these may result in a deterioration of service.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.


Persistent cookies – these cookies remain on your computer or device for the period of time specified by the cookie. They are activated each time you visit the website that created them.

Session cookies – these cookies allow us to recognise your actions during your browser session, so any changes, item or data selections you make are remembered. The most common use of this is for an e-commerce shopping cart.

Session cookies are created temporarily and once you close your browser they’re deleted.


We use a combination of 1st Party and 3rd party Cookies on this website in order to monitor visitor usage levels, to help improve site performance and to enhance your user experience.

This includes both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them).

We work with carefully selected suppliers for any 3rd party Cookies used on this website. These enable certain features to improve your user experience such as our content sharing through social networking sites.

Cookies we use include:

Strictly necessary cookies – These cookies allow the website to function properly, and must be present or it won’t work. This includes things like remembering your login details or language preferences. Necessary Cookies don’t collect any personally identifiable information about you and do not track your browsing habits.

Performance cookies – These cookies monitor website performance and collect anonymous data on how you interact with our site. For example, they identify which pages you visit the most or least. These cookies are used for monitoring purposes specific to our domain, typically by Google Analytics. They don’t collect identifiable information about you, aren’t shared and are just used to improve website functionality.

Functionality cookies – these cookies remember the preferences and choices you made when last visiting the website including username, region, and language. They allow the website to provide a more personalised service with features like local news stories and weather if you share your location.

Third party cookies – These cookies allow third parties to track the success of their application or customise the application for you. Because of how cookies work we cannot access them. For example, if you choose to ‘share’ content through Twitter or other social networks you might be sent cookies from these websites. We don’t control the setting of these cookies, so please check those websites for more information about their cookies and how to manage them.
