1. WHAT ARE COOKIES?
A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the website.
Our website, like many others, stores and retrieves information on your browser using cookies. The information is used to make the website work as you expect it to. It is not personally identifiable to you, but it can be used to give you a more personalised web experience.
Because we respect your right to privacy, you can choose to change your privacy preferences to prevent non-essential cookies being set.
2. HOW LONG DO COOKIES LAST?
Some are erased when you close the browser on your website. Others stay longer, sometimes forever, and are saved onto your device so that they’re there when you come back.
