1. What are cookies?

Cookies are small files which are stored on a user’s computer. They are designed to hold a modest amount of data specific to a particular client and website and can be accessed either by the web server or the client computer. This allows the server to deliver a page tailored to a particular user, or a page itself can contain some script which is aware of the data in the cookie and so can carry information from one visit to the website (or related site) to the next.

Our website uses cookies to allow the website to function correctly and to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with a more feature rich experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our site.
