A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive.
The cookies we use are “analytical” cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. You can find more information about the individual cookies we use and the purposes for which we use them in the table below:
Cookies Set By Us:
|php_session||This cookie is used by our server code to link a user to a session so that information about their visit can be stored on the server as they move from one page to the next. When a user fills out an Exchange form over several pages, for instance it is this cookie that contains the key which enables the information submitted on one page to be linked to the user submitting the information on the next.||These cookies are essential to allow the website to operate without interruption or delay. These cookies will last for 1 month after your browsing session on the website.|
Cookies Set By Google Analytics
|This cookie is typically written to the browser upon the first visit to our site from that web browser. This cookie is used to determine unique visitors to our site and it is updated with each page view. Additionally, this cookie is provided with a unique ID that Google Analytics uses to ensure both the validity and accessibility of the cookie as an extra security measure.||These cookies will be set with your consent and will stay on your browser for 2 years.|
|This cookie is used to establish and continue a user session with our site. Each time a user visits a different page on our site, this cookie is updated to expire in 30 minutes, continuing a single session for as long as user activity continues within 30-minute intervals. This cookie expires when a user pauses on a page on our site for longer than 30 minutes.||These cookies will be set with your consent and will stay on your browser for 30 minutes.|
|This cookie operates in conjunction with the utmb cookie to determine whether or not to establish a new session for the user. Should a user visit our site, exit the browser and then return to our website within 30 minutes, the absence of the utmc cookie indicates that a new session needs to be established.||These cookies will be set with your consent and will stay on your browser until you exit the session.|
|Google Analytics: _utmz||This cookie stores the type of referral used by the visitor to reach our site, whether via a direct method, a referring link, a website search, or a campaign such as an ad or an email link. It is used to calculate search engine traffic, ad campaigns and page navigation within our own site. The cookie is updated with each page view to our site.||These cookies will be set with your consent and will stay on your browser for 6 months.|
If you have selected “No Thanks” to cookies, we will not store any on your hard drive for the duration of your session, however, you may not be able to access all, or parts of, our site. You will be asked the same question about cookies the next time you visit this website.
If you have said “I agree” to cookies, your consent will be saved and you will not be asked again about cookies on subsequent visits to our website. We will still remind you that cookies are being used and give you information on how to disable them.
If you have chosen to navigate to another page on the website without choosing either option, we will assume that you agree to the cookies used and your consent will be implied. On subsequent pages you visit, we will remind you that cookies are being used and provide you with information on how to disable them. You will be asked the same question about cookies the next time you visit this website.
