Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded on to your computer, mobile or other device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the website from which they originated on each subsequent visit or to another website that recognises the cookie. They are useful because they allow a website to recognise the user’s device. They have various functions, such as allowing you to navigate efficiently between pages, remembering your preferences and improving your browsing experience generally.
We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used on our site and a 'SNID' cookie, with a lifetime of 2 years, and with the purpose of distinguishing users. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes. Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
