What is a cookie?
We use ‘cookies’ to monitor how people use our site. This helps us to understand how our customers and potential customers use our website so we can develop and improve the design, layout and function of the site.
A cookie is a piece of information that is stored on your computer’s hard drive through your browser, to recognise your browser and which records how you have used a website.

Turning cookies off in different browsers
The ‘Help’ menu on the menu bar of most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie and how to disable cookies altogether.
Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-ons settings or visiting the website of its manufacturer.
Please remember that communications over the internet, such as emails and webmails (messages sent through a website), are not secure unless they have been encrypted.
Your communications may go through a number of countries before they are delivered – this is the nature of the internet.
We cannot accept responsibility for any unauthorised access or loss of personal data that is beyond our control.
