A cookie is a small text file placed on your device that stores information about a user’s use of a website. Tracking technologies, such as cookies and local shared objects (sometimes called “Flash cookies”) may be used by this website. We use cookies for allowing the website to work and enhancing usability, as well as for providing information to us. The different types of cookies we use are outlined below:

“Session based”: This is a temporary cookie and, once you close out of the website, any information is no longer needed and is deleted. It is essential for parts of the website to operate and is used to allow the website to carry background information as you navigate between pages, allowing the website to provide you an efficient service.

“Persistent”: This remains in the cookie file of your browser even after you log out of the website or close the browser. It enables a website to remember you the next time you visit the website and can remember your site settings preferences. You will be asked for your explicit consent before agreeing to the use of this function.

Given the nature of some cookies however, you may not be able to use all features of the website, or access secure areas, if these are disabled. For more information on cookies and why they are used, please visit: www.allaboutcookies.org
