Without session cookies many user functions on our website would not work. A unique ID will track your session from page to page in order to make sure things run smoothly while you are using our website. This keeps you signed in whilst you use certain pages.
Persistent cookies help our website remember you when you revisit us. This helps us know things like how many unique visitors we are getting to the site. Persistent cookies last for a pre-defined period unless they are deleted.
We use Google Analytics to allow us to track how popular our site is and to record visitor trends over time such as tracking which pages users go to. Cookies used for this purpose don’t contain any personally identifiable information – just your computer’s IP address (its unique number) to determine where in the world you are accessing the site from, and to track your page visits within the site.
