What is in a cookie?
A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website's server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers. It allows a website to remember things like your preferences or what's in a shopping basket.
What cookies does this website use?
The content management system (Drupal) only uses session cookies. A session cookie only lasts for the duration of users using the website. A web browser normally deletes session cookies when it quits.
This website also uses one third-party cookie (Google Analytics) to measure use of the website including number of visitors, how frequently pages are viewed, and the city and country of origin of users. This helps to determine what is popular and can influence future content and development. The information collected will include IP Address, pages visited, browser type and operating system. The data can not be used to identify any user personally.
Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user.
