This site has security measures in place to protect the loss and alteration of information under our control.  We use a third party service to help maintain the security and performance of the website. To deliver this service it processes the IP addresses of visitors to the website.

Use of cookies

When our website providers provide services, to make your experience easy, useful and reliable and where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • Enabling a service to recognise your device so you don’t have to give the same information several times during one task
  • Recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested
  • Measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast.

You can manage these small files yourself through your browser setting.
