What are cookies?

A cookie is a tiny file that is saved by your browser when you visit a website. It enables certain information about your visit to be stored by the site.

Some of these cookies are essential in order for a website to run as you expect it to, while others allow us to provide you with a better service (for example, understanding what content is most popular, to provide you more of the same).

Our cookie policy

We understand you need to reach the most relevant information quickly and easily. So, our main aim of using cookies is to provide you with the most optimised 'user experience' possible.

Our website analytics tool uses cookies in order to analyse how, when and where visitors use our websites, but this information is not tied to personally identifiable information. We only use this data to improve your experience. For example, we are able to find out what the most popular content is each week, and update our homepage to reflect that current interest.

Some pages have third party cookies to enable us to know how many people engage with the adverts we place elsewhere that guide people to this website. We analyse this data regularly to tailor adverts to user trends.

We currently operate an 'implied consent' policy. This means that we assume you agree with the usage of our cookies. If you do not agree, we have provided guidance to help you to alter your browser settings to match the level of privacy you require (see ‘How to manage cookies via your browser settings’ section below) or you can adjust the cookies this website uses by clicking here
