To give you the best possible experience, this site uses cookies. We have published a cookies policy, which you should read to find out more about how we use cookies.

Cookies Policy

This page contains information on what ‘cookies’ are, the cookies used by our website and how to amend your cookie preferences. If it does not provide the information you were looking for, or you have any further questions about the use of cookies on our website, please email us.

What are ‘cookies’?

‘Cookies’ are small text files that are stored by the browser (for example, Internet Explorer, Chrome or Safari) on your computer or mobile phone. They allow websites to store things like user preferences. You can think of cookies as providing a ‘memory’ for the website, so that it can recognise you when you come back and respond appropriately.

How does this website use cookies?

A visit to a page on the website may generate the following types of cookie:

  • Site performance cookies
  • Anonymous analytics cookies

Site performance cookies

This type of cookie remembers your preferences for tools found on the website, so you don’t have to re-set them each time you visit. Examples include:

  • volume settings for our video player
  • video streaming speeds that are compatible with your browser

Anonymous analytics cookies:

Every time someone visits our website, software provided by another organisation generates an ‘anonymous analytics cookie’.

These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before.

Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies and, if you don’t, we generate new ones.

This allows us to track how many individual users we have, and how often they visit the site. We cannot use these cookies to identify individuals. We use them to gather statistics, for example, the number of visits to a page.

How do I amend my cookie settings or turn them off?

You can amend your cookie settings by using the 'Update Cookie Settings' link at the bottom of this page. Here you can turn on or off analytics and advertising cookies. Please note that some elements of the site, such as the chat function, will not function fully with the analytics cookies turned off.

All modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings, including disabling all cookies. Please note that disabling all cookies will have a negative impact upon the usability of the website, and some functions may not be available with these settings.
