We use small text files called “cookies” on our public website. This page discusses how cookies are used by our website. If you continue to use our website, you are consenting to our use of cookies.

Most websites use cookies to some extent but if you wish to restrict or disable cookies you can set your internet browser to do so.

Please note that if you restrict or disable cookies on your browser, you may lose some of our website’s functionality.

What are cookies?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information stored on your computer or device by your web browser (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox) at the request of a site you’re viewing. This allows the site you’re viewing to remember things about you, such as your preferences and history or to keep you logged in. Cookies may be stored on your computer for a short time (such as only while your browser is open) or for an extended period of time, even years. Cookies not set by this site will not be accessible to us.

How do we use cookies?

We use cookies for:

  • Registration and maintaining your preferences. This includes ensuring that you can stay logged in and keeping the site in the language or appearance that you requested.
  • Analytics. This allows us to determine how people are using the site and improve it.
  • Third-party cookies for things like Facebook or Twitter sharing (more information on third-party cookies is found below). These cookies will generally be set by the third-party independently, so this site will have no ability to access them.

How to control cookies

If you do not wish to receive cookies you can set your web browser to restrict or disable them. Most browsers allow you to change your cookie settings, normally found in the settings menu of your browser.

If you disable cookies you will not be able to use all the interactive features of our website.

Types of cookies

First-party and third-party cookies

These types of cookies are placed by a web domain (i.e. the website displayed in the URL window). First-party cookies are set by a website being visited by the user at the time. Third-party cookies are set by a domain other than that of the website being visited by the user. For example, if a user visits a website and another entity sets the cookie through that website, this would be a third-party cookie.

Persistent cookies

These cookies remain on a user’s device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the website which created that particular cookie.

Session cookies

Session cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.
