Cookies

This site uses cookies – small text files that are placed on your machine to help the site provide a better user experience. In general, cookies are used to retain user preferences, store information for things like shopping baskets, and provide anonymised tracking data to third party applications like Google Analytics. As a rule, cookies will make your browsing experience better.

Cookies can be either ‘first party’, which means they are used by an organisation on its own website, or ‘third party’ which is when they are used by an organisation on another organisation’s website. Some cookies are ‘session’ cookies that are deleted from your computer as soon as you close your web browser. ‘Persistent’ cookies do not self-delete until a specific period of time has elapsed. Further below we provide information on the cookies we use and highlight which are first and third party.

For more general information about cookies visit: All About Cookies.org. There is also a useful video about cookies on Google’s website.

By using and browsing this website, you consent to using the first and third party cookies that we use. If you do not consent, you must disable cookies (please see guidance below) or please refrain from using the site.

First party cookies

The table below lists the first party cookies we use and their purpose:

Cookie Name or Service
Purpose More information
wordpress_test_cookie Our website sets this cookie when you navigate to the login page. The cookie is used to check whether your web browser is set to allow, or reject cookies.
catAccCookies This cookie is set by the UK cookie consent popup to record that you accept the fact that our website uses cookies.
Google Analytics

These cookies are used by the Google Analytics service to collect information about how visitors use our site. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the site. The cookies collect information in an anonymous form, including the number of visitors to the site, where visitors have come to the site from and the pages they visited.

Overview of Google Analytics cookie usage

Please note that the actual cookies set by the website on logging in contain hashed data (represented in the above table by {hash} ), so you don’t have to worry about someone gleaning your username and password by reading the cookie data. A hash is the result of a specific mathematical formula applied to some input data (in this case your user name and password, respectively). It’s quite hard to reverse a hash (bordering on practical infeasibility with today’s computers). This means it is very difficult to take a hash and “unhash” it to find the original input data.

How can I control cookies?

Most web browsers accept cookies automatically, but you can change the settings of your browser to reject all cookies, to only allow ‘trusted’ websites to use them, or to only accept cookies from those websites which you are currently on.

Please note: rejecting cookies is not recommended as this is likely to result in some features on this website not functioning correctly or as intended.

There is guidance available on the website All About Cookies.org which tells you how to control and remove cookies using the options available in your web browser.
