We use Google Analytics cookies to compile visitor statistics such as how many people have visited our website, what type of technology they are using (e.g. Mac or Windows which helps to identify when our site is not working as it should for particular technologies), how long they spend on the site, what page they look at etc. This helps us to continuously improve our website.

Turning Cookies Off
Most browsers are set to accept cookies by default. You can remove or reject cookies but be aware that such action could affect the availability and functionality of our platforms.
You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies (learn how here) or notify you each time a cookie is tendered, permitting you to accept or decline cookies on an individual basis. Doing so however will likely limit the functionality of our and a large proportion of the world’s websites as cookies are a standard part of most modern websites.
It may be that your concerns around cookies relate to so called “spyware”. Rather than switching off cookies in your browser you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive.
