These allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors we have, and to see how visitors move around the site when they are using it and which bits of the site they use most often. This helps us to improve the way the websites work, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. We also use third party cookies to do this for us.
We also use “session” cookies. These cookies recognise that you are logged in to your account and allow us to link all your activities during one visit. This makes using the web sites a lot easier for you.
