What Cookies do we use and why?

We use web analytics services to help us understand how people use our website. For example, we can see which parts of the website are most popular and what pages receive most visits. The web analytics services may also use cookies and similar technologies to make the information collected more useful. When you are viewing a website, a cookie is transferred to your browser by the web server and is stored on your computer. It can only be read by the server that gave it to you. Cookies allow web analytics services to recognise your browser or device and, for example, identify whether you have visited particular pages of our website before, what you have previously viewed or clicked on, and how you found us. The information is anonymous and only used for statistical purposes. It allows us to track information, such as how many individual users we have and how often they visit our websites. It also helps us to analyse patterns of user activity and to develop a better user experience. Web analytics data and cookies cannot be used to identify you as they never contain personal information such as your name or email address.
