This is statistical data about our users' browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.

Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer's hard drive. They help us to improve our site and to deliver a better and more personalised service. They enable us:
You may at any time delete these cookies from your computer or adjust your browser settings to reject or disable cookies.

Unless you have adjusted your browser settings to reject cookies our system may issue cookies when you log on to our site.
Before we explain what cookies are we need to explain what a few commonly used terms mean:
There are four main categories of cookies:
These cookies are essential for the running of a website e.g. a cookie that remembers what you've put into a shopping basket.
Generally these cookies will be essential first-party session cookies, and if persistent or third party, there should be a good justification for this. Strictly necessary cookies will generally be used to store a unique identifier to manage and identify the user as unique to other users currently viewing the website, in order to provide a consistent and accurate service to the user. Examples include:
These cookies will not be used:
These cookies only collect information about website usage for the benefit of the website operator. We use them to ensure our site is working as well as possible, for example, if there's a really popular page then we may try to provide users with more of that sort of information.
By using our site, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device.
These cookies can be first or third party, session or persistent cookies. To fall within this category their usage should be limited to performance and website improvement.
These cookies are site specific and are linked to user choices for using that site, for example, language choices.
By using our site, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device
These cookies can be first party, third party, session or persistent cookies. These cookies will typically be the result of a user action, but might also be implemented in the delivery of a service not explicitly requested but offered to the user. They can also be used to prevent the user being offered a service again that had previously been offered to that user and rejected.
These cookies contain a unique key that is able to distinguish individual users' browsing habits or store a code that can be translated into to a set of browsing habits or preferences using information stored elsewhere, for example an online retailer could analyse your previous purchases and make suggestions based on what other purchasers of the same goods bought. Similarly, they can be used by third parties e.g. market analysts to build up a picture of your favourite sites, so they can target more relevant promotions to you. They often link to sites run by different companies e.g. if you have been shown an advert on one social networking site, the cookie may prevent the same advert being shown again on a different website.
These cookies collect the most information about users, so where the website operator is responsible for setting a targeting or advertising cookie it is important to obtain a clear informed consent from the user to their use.
We will always make it very clear if we use one of these cookies on our site and ask you for your consent before a cookie of this nature is placed on your device.
Removing and controlling cookies:
You can restrict or block the cookies set by a website through your browser settings. The Help function within your browser should tell you how.

For information on how to do this on the browser of your mobile phone or tablet you will need to refer to your user manual.
