A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer, if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your device’s hard drive.

Some cookies are set directly by our website for example the uniform resource locator which is displayed in your browser’s address bar. These are known as first- party cookies. Third party cookies differ to these, as they are set by a different domain other than ourselves. An example of a third-party cookie would be if our website incorporates elements from other sites such as advertising or if it uses providers of external services like web traffic analysis services. To deactivate the use of third-party advertising cookies, you may visit the consumer page to manage the use of these types of cookies.
