There are two main types of cookies:
- Session cookies are temporary and are erased when you close your browser at the end of your surfing session. The next time you visit that particular site it will not recognise you and will treat you as a completely new visitor as there is nothing in your browser to let the site know that you have visited before.
- Persistent cookies remain on your hard drive until you erase them or they expire. How long a cookie remains on your browser depends on how long the visited website has programmed the cookie to last.

The only cookies we use are Google analytics. We use these to help us ensure our site is as relevant for our customers as possible. Google Cookies use non-personally identifiable information such as when a visit occurred, which page was visited etc. This information helps us understand which areas of the site are popular and areas where improvement is required.
The Google Analytics cookies that are in operation on the website are called: __utma __utmb __utmc __utmz
- _utma stores where a visitor came from (search engine, search keyword, link).
- _utmb & _utmc are used to check approximately how long you stay on a site: when a visit starts, and approximately ends.
- _utmz stores where a visitor came from (search engine, search keyword, link).
