In this guideline we use the term “cookies” to refer to cookies and other similar technologies covered by the EU Directive on privacy in electronic communications.
What is a cookie?
Cookies are small text files, created by the website visited, that contain data. They are stored on the visitor’s computer to give the user access to various functions.
Both session cookies and non-session cookies are used on our sites.
A session cookie is temporarily stored in the computer memory while the visitor is browsing the website. This cookie is erased when the user closes their web browser or after a certain time has passed (meaning that the session expires).
A non-session cookie remains on the visitor’s computer until it is deleted.
Site functionality and content.
The share function is used by visitors to recommend our sites and content on social networks such as Facebook and Twitter. Cookies store information on how visitors use the share function – although not at an individual level – so that the website can be improved. If you do not accept cookies, no information is stored.
How do I reject and delete cookies?
However, should you wish to do so, you can choose to reject or block the cookies set by the copyright holder or the websites of any third party suppliers by changing your browser settings – see the "Help function" within your browser for further details.
Please note that most browsers automatically accept cookies so if you do not wish cookies to be used, you may need to actively delete or block the cookies.
