What is a cookie?

A cookie is a piece of information which a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer. The browser then saves the information and sends it back to the website server. When that browser returns to the same website the cookie will recognise the user. A cookie doesn't tell us your email address or any other personal information.

A cookie will typically contain details such as the domain from which the cookie has come, a value which is usually a random unique number as an identifier and the lifetime (expiry) of the cookie.

There are 3 types of cookies used on this website:
  • Session Cookies: allowing us to "remember" content from page to page (these expire when you leave the website or close the browser).
