What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files stored on your computer's hard drive which are used to collect your personal information as well as to gather information on your general internet usage. Cookies are downloaded to your device when you visit a website, and then are sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user's device and target the content displayed to the user's interests. Cookies help us to improve our site and to deliver a better and more personalised service.
We may collect information about your computer, including where available your internet protocol (IP) address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers. This is statistical data about our users' browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.
They enable us:
- to estimate our audience size and usage pattern;
- to store information about your preferences, and so allow us to customise our Website according to your individual interests;
- to speed up your searches; and
- to recognise you when you return to our Website.
