We use session-based cookies – which are allocated to your device for the duration of your visit to a website and expire automatically when you close your browser. We also use persistent cookies– which remain on your device for a fixed period of time, so we can avoid asking you the same questions each time you visit our website for example, whether you allow us to install cookies. We also sometimes allow third parties to place cookies and we’ve included some examples of who these third parties are below.

Here are the key ways we use cookies.
