This Cookie Policy provides you with information about the cookies we use in the Application and why.

Cookies used on the application

We use several different types of cookies. In particular, we use: necessary cookies which allow certain fundamental features of the Application to work; functionality cookies, which allow us to remember choices you make (e.g. your cookie preference); targeting cookies, which record the fact that you have accessed the Application and then which links you have followed whilst you use the Application and performance cookies, which monitors usage of the Application. We also use third party cookies - these are cookies that are set by a third party website rather than by us. Some of these are session cookies which are temporary and allow us to link your actions during a single use of the Application. These are deleted at the end of your browsing session. Others are persistent cookies which remain on your device for the period of time specified in the cookie. These cookies help us to identify you as a unique user (by storing a randomly generated number). The following is a more detailed explanation of the types of cookies we use:
