There are two types of cookie used on our site: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies are temporary files used to store information for your current browser session, and are deleted when you close your browser. Persistent cookies are files that are saved on your computer and contain information that can be read by the site when you return, and are used to manage your user experience, or provide anonymous statistical analysis relating to your visits.
None of the cookies store any personal information that could be used to identify you.

Session cookies for site management: when you access the site, a cookie “token” with a unique encrypted session id code is passed to your computer. This token then controls your access to the site for that session, and is deleted once you close your browser or log off from the site. These cookies are an essential part of the site delivery system, and you will not be able to fully use our site without cookies enabled.
We use Google Analytics to monitor traffic on our site. When you visit our site the Google Analytics program sets certain cookies that record statistical information about your visits to the site, and we are required by law to identify these cookies to you and how they are used.
