Managing cookies

Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their device a little intrusive, in particular when the information is stored and used by a third party. For example, you may object to being served advertising which is targeted to your interests based on your browsing history.

If you would prefer to opt out of cookies it is possible to control cookies by following the steps below, however you should be aware that if you choose to block all cookies, our site will not function as intended and you will not be able to use or access many of the services we provide.

Rather than blocking all cookies, you can choose to only block third-party cookies which will still allow our website to function as intended.

Cookies, including those which have already been set, can be deleted from your hard drive. You can also change the preferences/settings in your web browser to control cookies. Some internet browsers have a ‘Do Not Track or ‘DNT’ setting; this sends a signal to websites asking them not to track your browsing. The following links may be helpful:

Cookie setting in Firefox

Cookie setting in Safari - desktop and mobile devices

Cookie setting in Internet Explorer

Cookie setting in Chrome

Cookie setting in Opera

In some cases, you can choose to accept cookies from the primary site, but block them from third parties. In others, you can block cookies from specific advertisers, or clear out all cookies. Deleting or blocking cookies may reduce functionality of the site.

You can find out more about managing cookies by visiting All About Cookies or by going to the help menu within your internet browser.
