The cookie allows our website to "remember" your preferences and actions over time, and store information about them. This may make your next visit to our website easier and the service more relevant to you.
Cookies set by us are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by external parties are called “third party cookies”.

Performance cookies collect anonymous information about users for the purpose of assessing the performance of a website. Common applications that are relevant include Google Analytics.
Functionality cookies automatically remember choices that users have previously made to improve their experience next time they visit a website. For example, where users select their preferred settings and layout.
Targeting or Advertising cookies are similar to performance cookies, in that they collect information about users’ behaviour. However, this information is then used at individual user level to advertise services to users based on the behavioural information collected.
