What are cookies?

As is common practice with almost all professional websites this site uses cookies, which are tiny files that are downloaded to your computer, to improve your experience. This page describes what information they gather, how we use it and why we sometimes need to store these cookies. We will also share how you can prevent these cookies from being stored however this may downgrade or 'break' certain elements of the sites functionality.

Session cookie

A session cookie only exists in temporary memory while you navigate our website. Web browsers normally delete session cookies when you close your browser. Unlike other cookies, session cookies do not have an expiration date assigned to them, which is how the browser knows to treat them as session cookies.

Persistent cookie

Instead of expiring when the web browser is closed as session cookies do, persistent cookies expire at a specific date or after a specific length of time. This means that, for the cookie's entire lifespan, its information will be transmitted to the server every time you visit our website.

Third-party cookie

Normally, a cookie's domain attribute will match our domain, which is shown in your web browser's address bar. This is called a first-party cookie. Third-party cookies, however, belong to domains different from the one shown in the address bar.

Most modern web browsers contain privacy settings that can block third-party cookies.
