To make this site simpler, we sometimes place small data files on your computer. These are known as cookies. Most big websites do this too.

They improve things by:

  • remembering settings, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you visit a new page
  • remembering information you’ve given (eg your postcode) so you don’t need to keep entering it

Our cookies are all session based cookies, meaning that they get automatically deleted after a set time (an hour) or when you close your browser.  They’re just here to make the site work better for you. Indeed, you can manage and/or delete these small files as you wish.
