Cookies allow us to automatically identify you so that we can deliver content best suited to you.

When you enter our site your computer will automatically be issued with a Cookie which is a text file which identifies your computer to our server.

Cookies in themselves do not identify the individual user, just the computer used.

Many sites do this whenever a user visits their site, in order to trace traffic flows.

Cookies themselves only record which areas of the site have been visited by the computer in question, and for how long.

Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify you when a cookie is set, or not to receive cookies at any time, although this of course means that personalised services cannot then be provided to that user.

Allowing us to create a cookie does not give us access to the rest of your computer and we will not use cookies to track your online activity once you leave our site.

We use cookies in several ways, as show below:

Name Description Lifetime
PHPSESSID This keeps track of your current session, which allows us to provide the Further Request Basket and search filter functionality. Expires at the end of the session when your browser is closed.
_ga Used for Google Analytics. 2 years by default unless manually cleared.
_gat Used for Google Analytics. 10 minutes by default unless manually cleared.

You have the ability to change the settings on your internet browser to accept all cookies, to notify you when a cookie is set, or not to receive cookies at any time, although this may mean that some services on our sites cannot then be provided to you.

If you want to delete any cookies that are already on your computer, please refer to the instructions for your file management software to locate the file or directory that stores cookies.
