What are Cookies?

Our website uses cookies placed by ourselves and by third parties that we may choose to work with. A cookie is a small file sent with the pages you read. It is stored by the browser (Chrome, Firefox, etc.) on your device. The file may be updated each time you visit the website. We do not use advertising cookies.

What am I being asked to agree to?

When you visit us for the first time you will see a banner at the bottom of the screen. You can choose by clicking on “OK” to accept all cookies or you can be selective. You are agreeing to provide the information a cookie collects or to be able to use the functions it provides.

What do cookies do?

We explain here what different types of cookie do.  If and when we implement them, you may choose to disable some of them if you do not want to use or provide the related information. However, as we designed the website to use them, it may not work properly for you without them. Note also that although we choose reputable third parties, we have no control over their use of cookies. We recommend that you read their privacy statements.

This website’s Content Management System sets a session cookie for the duration of each visit to the site, without which the website cannot function properly.

“Necessary cookies” ensure that the website works properly. For example, one stores your preference for using cookies so that you are not asked on every visit.  “Third Party cookies” enable the functions as decided by them. “Additional cookies” may be placed by us for purposes that we would prefer your agreement to, but which can be disabled without affecting your use of the website. Currently we have no cookies in either category.
