What Are Cookies and JavaScript and How We Use Them?

As is common practice with almost all professional websites, this website uses cookies, which are files that are downloaded to the user’s device to improve the experience. This page describes what information we gather, how to manage user preferences, disabling cookies, removing cookies, how we use cookies, how we protect the user’s information and why we sometimes need to store these cookies. We will also share how the user can prevent these cookies from being stored, however this may disable certain elements of the sites’ functionality.

We also use JavaScript, which are snippets of code we run on the website that are executed when certain actions take place. JavaScript, for example, help website owners measure how users interact with website content. As a user navigates between webpages JavaScript tags are created to record information about the page a user has seen, for example the URL of the page. As an example, JavaScript use HTTP Cookies to “remember” what a user has done on previous pages/interactions with the website which then helps to create the next actions.

Some of the dynamic website enhancements performed by JavaScript are:

  • Autocomplete
  • Loading new content or data onto the page without reloading the page
  • Rollover effects and dropdown menus
  • Animating page elements such as fading, resizing or relocating
  • Playing audio and video
  • Validating input from Web forms
  • Repairing browser compatibility issues

We use cookies and JavaScript for a variety of reasons detailed below, but as a lawful company we use both in accordance within the law.


Disabling Cookies

The user can prevent the setting of cookies by adjusting the settings on their browser (see the browser Help Guide for how to do this). Be aware that disabling cookies will usually result in also disabling certain functionality and features of this site.


Removing Cookies

The user can delete cookies that are already on their device by clearing the browsing history of their browser (see the browser Help Guide for how to do this). This will remove all cookies from all websites the user has visited. Be aware though that the user may also lose some saved information (e.g. saved login details, site preferences).


Managing Cookies and Other Technologies

When visiting this site, we will ask the user permission to “accept all” or “reject all” cookies and other technologies that we use via a pop-up banner, the user can also click further, “settings”, to adjust their cookie preferences in more detail. The user can visit the site and at the bottom of the pages can update the preferences by clicking the “Manage Website Data Collection preferences”.

The Cookies We Set

  • Login related cookies

We use cookies when the user is logged in so that we can remember this fact. This prevents the user from having to log in every single time they visit a new page. These cookies are typically removed or cleared when the user logs out to ensure that they can only access restricted features and areas when logged in. This also helps for security reasons, example: the site will log users out after a set period of inactivity.
