Our website uses both persistent cookies and “session variables” (sometimes referred to as “session-id cookies”). Persistent cookies are stored on your equipment between browsing sessions.

We use the following cookies:
- Strictly necessary cookies - These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They include, for example, session variables/cookies that store information on our servers without the intrusiveness of placing a cookie on your browser or computer. The session variables allow you to use our site in a way that makes your browsing experience more convenient, for example, by allowing you to store items in an electronic shopping basket between visits, log into secure areas of our website, or make use of e-billing services. If you register with us or complete our online forms, we will use these session variables to remember your details during your current visit. When you close your browser then the session variable is cleared.
- Analytical/performance cookies - They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. This cookie enables us to estimate our audience size and usage pattern.
- Functionality cookies -These are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region). These are persistent cookies, which expire after a period of time.
