A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive.

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our website, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services.
  • Analytical/performance cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
  • Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
  • Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed.

wfwaf-authcookie-fc570450bbc13cf6df206f1c8791af4cz Wordfence authorisation cookie Wordfence is the security plugin protecting the site. It uses cookies for three tasks:

  1. To uniquely identify visitors shown in Wordfence Live traffic.
  2. To track a user who was previously logged into WordPress but has logged out to ensure that Falcon cache does not show that user cached pages.
  3. If a user has visited a unique page that allows them to bypass country blocking a cookie is set to identify that user so that country blocking does not prevent them from viewing the site.
Details of this cookie’s purpose can be found on Wordfence.com (external link).
