Our website provides services and information. We want to make your experience easy, safe and reliable. All over the internet, websites sometimes place small amounts of information on your computer to help tailor your experience. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally, nor can they retrieve information outside of the realm in which they are set.
These cookies are used to improve services for you, for example:
- enabling a service to recognise you so that it doesn’t have to repeat the same functions upon every visit
- measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast
- using the information gathered by measuring the finding methods so that the site’s structure can be improved to provide this information more quickly
If you wish to restrict or block the cookies which are set by our website, or any other website, you can do this through your browser settings. Please be aware that restricting cookies may impact the functionality of most websites.
Our cookies include small files such as the pma_lang cookie which remembers which language you like to view the site in. They are not active executing files – they don’t spy on any other files in your computer and they are in no way malicious. They are simply there to improve your browsing experience.
Third party cookies
We use a number of third party applications which also set cookies on our websites on their behalf in order to deliver the analytics and enhancement services that they provide. If you would like more information about their individual privacy policies, please see below.
