What is a cookie?
Cookies are pieces of computer code which are stored on your computer which let us know that you have visited our website. These cookies do not contain any personal information.
There are two broad categories of cookies:
Persistent cookies: Persistent cookies remain on your device until deleted manually or automatically.
Session cookies: Session cookies remain on your device until you close your browser when they are automatically deleted.
1. Improving our website – Google Analytics:
- _utma (set to expire every two years)
- _utmb (set to expire every thirty minutes)
- _utmc (will expire when you close your browser)
- _utmz (set to expire every two years)
The above four cookies allow us to use the Google Analytics reporting tool to count visits to our website and therefore improve it. They will expire as indicated unless you clear your cookies via your browser or third party application.
Each one of the above four cookies is set for every single page of this site. So it does not matter which page you arrive at the site, those cookies will still be set automatically. These cookies do not store any personal identifiable information about a visitor.
