Cookies are tiny text files that are stored on your computer, tablet or mobile phone. They are NOT harmful to your computer or your security and despite misconceptions, are nothing to do with viruses like ‘Trojans’. When you visit a website, Cookies allow the website to ‘remember’ you and how you’ve used the website each time you come back, which means you get a much better online experience.

How we use cookies

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (Google) which uses cookies to help analyse how the website is used to improve your experience in our systems. A so called “User ID” will be used on this website. The User ID functions as your alias in Google Analytics. Google connects your online behaviour and the User ID to a profile. Google Analytics tracks your activities on an anonymised basis across multiple devices (tablet, PC, smartphone, etc.).

The information generated by the cookies about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for us and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

To explore what cookie settings are available to you, look in the “preferences” or “options” section of your browser’s menu. You may opt out of Google’s use of cookies on the Google advertising opt-out page or by using the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-On.
