Cookies required for website functions to operate and cookies used to anonymously collect general information to help us understand how visitors use our website (don't worry we won't keep tally of how many cookies you eat though).

WHAT ARE COOKIES?

A cookie is a data file, which often includes a unique identifier, that is sent to your browser from a web server and is then stored on the hard drive of the device you are using to browse the website. Each website you visit can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but to protect your privacy your browser only permits a website to access cookies it has already sent to you, not cookies sent to you by other sites.

Users have the opportunity to set their devices to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. Each browser is different, so check the ‘Help’ menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences. Please be aware that blocking cookies may affect the functionality of the website.

If you disable these cookies, you will still see adverts but they won’t be tailored to your interests.
