What are cookies?
A cookie is a small file of data, usually consisting of letters and numbers, which is downloaded onto your computer or mobile internet device. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site. A cookie cannot be used to identify you personally but it can allow a website to recognise you if you visit the site again and can as a result improve its responsiveness to you when you revisit.
Types of cookies
There are lots of different types of cookies which can be used in different ways. Below are some useful descriptions which will allow you to differentiate between certain types of cookies.
- Session cookies: these cookies only last for the duration of a browser session and expire when you leave a website and the session ends. They enable website to track a user’s actions on a website during that session. For example, these cookies are used to allow the website operator to recall items placed by a user in an electronic shopping basket to purchase during a visit to their site. The information would not be retained if the user left the website and the session ended.
- Persistent cookies: these cookies are stored on the user’s equipment between browsing sessions and allow a website to recognise you on your return. More intrusive persistent cookies can be used to track your activities across other websites and can be used in order to target advertising based on your browser activities. Our website does not use persistent cookies.
- First-party cookies: these are cookies that are planted by the website you are visiting. The cookie can be identified by the website each time a user returns. For example, these cookies can be used by the website to store log in details so that a user does not need to re-enter their username and password on every visit to the site.
- Third-party cookies: these are cookies that are planted by third parties with the permission of the operator of the website you are visiting. Third party cookies are used by a range of third parties in a variety of different ways. For example, they can be used by third parties who provide security to purchasing transactions or, as is increasingly common, by advertisers. Our website does not use third party cookies.
Our website uses Google Analytics cookies and session cookies. We use these cookies to help us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also to improve our site. The cookies we use allow us to recognise visitors and to see how visitors move around the site when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. They are not used for tracking or recording information about visitors. Please see below further detail about the individual analytical cookies we use and how to recognise them.
We use the following cookies on our website:

Confidentiality and Data Protection
We may gain information about you from your use of this website. It may be ‘voluntary information’ – information that you provide to us voluntarily (such as contact details or information contained in an employment application form) or ‘involuntary information’- information that we gather through our monitoring of visits to this website.
Voluntary information will be retained and utilised in accordance with all applicable laws – in particular, the Data Protection Act 1998, in accordance with which we will maintain and protect the confidentiality of your information.
Third parties may provide us with storage facilities. They will be required to adhere to the same confidentiality obligations that we have and will only be allowed to process data in accordance with our instructions. Apart from this, we will not, unless required to do so by law or by regulators, disclose your data to any third party.
You are entitled to access and to have rectified any personal data provided to us. You may do this either by sending us a written request by post or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Involuntary information will not generally identify individual visitors to our website and is mainly statistical. It will be used mainly to improve the website and its navigability, and to identify areas that are of most interest to visitors. Where visitors are identified they will usually be organisations that already have relationships with us, and the information we gain will be used in developing those relationships and improving the services we provide.
Important notice for users – Like most websites, this site uses Google Analytics cookies and session cookies. These are small files of data that collect information about how visitors use our site, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages.
These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. The information is only used to improve the responsiveness of our website when you visit.
By using our website, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device.
