 Use of cookies

Like many other websites, our Website stores information in a small text file, called a “cookie”, on your hard disk. Cookies contain information about you and your preferences, e.g. language preferences. This helps the site customise your view of the website the next time you visit it.

Only the information that you provide, or the preferences you set while visiting our website, can be stored in a cookie. Allowing a website to create a cookie does not give that or any other site access to the rest of your computer, and only the site that created the cookie can read it.

You can also prevent the use of cookies by modifying your browser, although you may not be able to access our full suite of services if you prevent the use of cookies.
