Cookies are small text files, used to improve web services for you. They make the interaction between you and our web site easier. Without cookies the web site thinks you are a new visitor each time you move to a new page. The benefits of using cookies are:

• enabling a service to recognise your device so you don’t have to give the same information several times during one task
• recognising that you may already have given a username and password, so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested
• measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast.

We recommend you allow the cookies we set as they help us provide a better service. We cannot identify you because the files are anonymous.

If you do not want to receive cookies from our web site, or want to remove cookies, select cookie settings under the Internet or privacy settings in your browser options, then add our web address: to the list of web sites you do not want to accept cookies from. Please be aware that there may be some functions on our web site which don't work when cookie consent is withdrawn.
