Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer by websites you visit. They allow the website to do things such as keep track of your preferences as you move around the site so that the website can personalise pages for you and store little bits of information about your visit for use on future visits. Cookies stay on your computer for varying amounts of time depending on their type and the parameters the website sets whilst creating them.
Cookies come in three different types. The cookies themselves vary very little between the types but their effect and use is different.
First party cookies are created by the website you are visiting. They can only be read and used by that website.
Third party cookies are not set by the website you are visiting. They are set by a different organisation whose features are being used by the website you are visiting. This is common practice if sites use analytical systems supplied by a third party (as most are) to track the usage and load on their website. These may also be created by embedded content in the web page, a YouTube video for instance, as these need their own cookies to work.
These enable a website to track your use throughout the site, storing choices you have made and any information you have provided. They are a type of first party cookie that only remain stored on your computer until you close your browser when they are then deleted.
Each browser has settings which allow you to elect not to allow websites to store cookies on your machine. As each browser is a little different, we advise you to check your browser’s help functionality for this option or search for instructions that are specific to your browser.
If you choose to disable cookies, some aspects of this website may not function as intended.
As part of the services offered to you through this website, the information which you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). By way of example, this may happen if any of our servers are from time to time located in a country outside of the EU. These countries may not have similar data protection laws to the UK. By submitting your personal data, you’re agreeing to this transfer, storing and/or processing. If we transfer your information outside of the EEA in this way, we will take steps to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken and we remain compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation, with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this Policy.
If you use our services while you are outside the EU, your information may be transferred outside the EEA in order to provide you with those services.
