How do we use cookies?

A cookie is a small file/database entry that resides on your computer and is recognised by our server when you visit our web site. A cookie does not provide us with any personally identifiable information. It does provide details of your IP address, the computer platform that you use, the browser that you use and what domain you are accessing our sites from.

We use a single “cookie” to enhance the ‘My Account’ section of our web site, by keeping you signed in after log-in. We do not use cookies to track you or for marketing purposes.

You can use the settings of your web browser to disable and delete cookies (this will result in the ‘My Account’ section of the web site from not working correctly). If you do not login to our web site no cookie will be created.
