Performance Cookies

Our site uses analytical cookies, which are categorised as “Performance” cookies. These cookies collect information about how visitors use a site.  They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors, which pages visitors go to most often, and to see how visitors move around the site when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our site works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a site works.

These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog.
