If you want to check or change what types of cookies you accept, this can usually be altered within your browser settings. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of this site.
Cookies are either:
Some cookies are “strictly necessary”, which means they are essential to how the site works. Without them, the website won’t work properly. These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you have been on the internet.
There are also “performance” cookies, which are for analytics, such as count visits and monitoring the popularity of pages.
And finally there are “functionality” cookies that allow the website to remember choices you make. These can be used to provide enhanced features. For instance, news or updates relevant to the services you use. They may also be used to provide services you have requested such as viewing a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect is usually anonymised.
