Cookie Policy

Delivering services on the internet sometimes involves the use of small files known as cookies.

They are text files that place small amounts of information on your computer, mobile phone, tablet or any other device used to access the internet.  They don’t identify you personally. Here’s what they do:
 
enable a service to recognise your device so you don't need to give the same information several times during one task
recognise that you may already have given a username and password so you don't have to do it for every web page requested
measure how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there's enough capacity to ensure they are fast

We have taken steps to identify all of them but if you find any we have missed please let us know.
The following is a list of all cookies that we or our service providers use. Please be aware that there may be a delay in updating this list.
