How do I change my cookie settings?
The first time you visit our website from an internet browser you will be asked to set your cookie preferences using a ‘cookie manager’. The only cookies that will be delivered by default are those that are strictly necessary for website performance. All other types of cookies will be set to ‘off’ unless you choose to turn them on. You may need to refresh your page for your settings to take effect. If you click accept all cookies then all types of cookies will be switched on.
Your preferences will be remembered for one year. This is because the ‘consent cookie’ will expire after one year. You will be then asked to choose your preferences again. If you wish to reset your cookie preferences using the cookie manager click here.
