Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to your hard drive to store and sometimes track information about you. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can change your browser to prevent that.
We may use two types of cookies on our website:
- Session cookies, which are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your computer until you close your browser at which point they are deleted. These enable the website you are visiting to keep track of your movement from page to page so you don’t get asked for the same information you’ve already given to the site and provide you with a good experience; and
- Persistent or stored cookies that remain permanently on the cookie file of your computer.
These cookies allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the website when they are using it, for example recording details of pages relating to particular products and services that you have visited on our website. This helps us to improve the way our website works and ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for with ease, as well as providing you with information about products that interest you.
Cookies cannot look into your computer and obtain information about you or your family or read any material kept on your hard drive. Additionally they cannot be used by anyone else who has access to the computer to find out anything about you, other than the fact that someone using the computer has visited a certain website.
