Cookies are small, harmless text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a site or page.
The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit.
Web beacons or other similar files can also do the same thing. We use the term “cookies” in this policy to refer to
all files that collect information in this way.
There are many functions cookies serve. For example, they can help us to remember preferences, analyse how well our website is performing, or even allow us to recommend content we believe will be most relevant to you.
