These are ‘session cookies’, so called because they are deleted at the end of your browser session, in other words when you close your internet browser.


Our sessions cookies do not contain any of your personal information.


We use “session cookies” for the following reasons.


Our web site actually lives on several computers, not just one. This means we can cope with lots of visitors, and also means if one of our computers fails the web site is still available.


We use sessions cookies to make sure that for any single visit to our web site you stay on the same computer. This helps us fix any bugs that crop up (because sometimes they happen on just one computer, not all of them at once).


It also means that we can split web forms over two or more pages and still keep track of your progress through the form.

Don’t worry – we don’t put any personally information from the form in to the cookie itself.


Disabling these cookies may mean our web site does not work for you.
