What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.

It also helps us to provide a more personalised experience. For example, if on a previous visit you went to our ‘about’ pages, we might find this out from your cookie and highlight our personal information on your second and subsequent visits. We use this type of information to help improve the services we provide.
