What are cookies?
Cookies used on the Site
We use two main types of cookies. They are:
- Necessary cookies which allow certain fundamental features of the Site to work; functionality cookies, which allow us to remember choices you make (e.g. your cookie preference)
- Performance cookies, which monitors usage of the Site.
Some of these are session cookies which are temporary and allow us to link your actions during a single use of the Site. These are deleted at the end of your browsing session. Others are persistent cookies which remain on your device for the period of time specified in the cookie. These cookies help us to identify you as a unique visitor.
In addition, there are cookies for Third Party Embeds: These cookies may be used to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant ads on other sites. They do not store directly personal information but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising (on other websites) and will not see embedded content such as Tweets, Vimeo or YouTube embeds or SoundCloud tracks on our site.
The following is a more detailed explanation of the types of cookies we use:
Necessary cookies are essential and help you navigate the Site. Without these cookies, services you have asked for, cannot be provided. These help to support security and basic functionality and are necessary for the proper operation of the site, so if you block these cookies we can’t guarantee your use or the security during your Site visit.
Performance cookies help us to understand the behaviour of visitors on the Site. This allows us to continuously improve the Site to provide the best user experience. These cookies are also used to help us understand how effective our Site is; for instance, these cookies tell us which pages visitors go to most often and if they get error messages from web pages. All of the information that these cookies collect is aggregated, to assist us to improve how the Site works.
We use Google Analytics cookies. Google Analytics is a third-party web analysis service using performance and targeting cookies. The information generated by these cookies about your use of the Site will be transmitted to and stored by Google Analytics servers. Google will use the information collected for the purpose of evaluating your use of our Site on our behalf, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to activity and internet usage to us. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You can find out more on how these cookies are used on Google’s Privacy Site:

Accepting these cookies is a condition of using the Site, so if you prevent them, we cannot guarantee how the Site will perform for you.
