If you prefer not to receive cookies while browsing our website, you can set your browser to refuse all cookies that are stored on your computer; the above websites tell you how to do this. How disable Cookies, Google Analytics and third party cookies You do not need to have cookies turned on to use or navigate through most parts of our website, although some functionality may be lost.


Our website uses session cookies to ensure that you have a good experience. These cookies contain a unique number, your ‘session ID’, which allows our server to recognise your computer and ‘remember’ what you’ve done on the site. The benefits of this are:
  • You only need to log in once if you’re navigating secure areas of the site
  • You are able to use interactive elements of the site, such as forms
  • Our server can distinguish between your computer and other users, so you can see the information that you have requested.
When you close your browser the cookie will be deleted and the site will ‘forget’. The following table gives details of the different types of cookies that might be used during a session.

If cookies are disabled, it uses the URL. Although this can be done securely, it’s harder and it often, well, isn’t. See, e.g., session fixation.
