About the cookies we use
Session cookies: These are temporary cookies that are automatically deleted when you close your browser.
Persistent cookies: These cookies stay on your computer for a set period (see table below) or until you manually clear your browsing data.
First and third-party cookies: Whether a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party refers to the website or domain placing the cookie. First-party cookies are set by a website you’ve visited - the website displayed in the URL window. Third-party cookies are set by another domain. For example, when you view or share our content on Facebook, they’ll set a cookie.
Cookies that are essential to the service we offer are categorised as ‘Necessary’. You can’t opt out of these. For all other types of cookies, including those placed by third-party services, we need your permission. You can change your settings at any time by visiting this page.
If you choose to withdraw or change your consent, this will stop cookies being placed on your device from that point forward. All cookies can be deleted from your device and you can set your browser not to receive cookies in future. For more information on how to do this, read this guide.
