Please be aware that restricting cookies may impact the functionality of the websites you visit.
There are four categories of cookies, as defined by the International Chamber of Commerce guide to cookie categories: http://www.internationalchamber.co.uk/components/com_wordpress/wp/wpcontent/uploads/2012/04/icc_uk_cookie_guide.pdf.
A. Strictly Necessary Cookies: These cookies are essential, as they enable you to move around a website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas. Without these cookies, services you’ve asked for (such as access to secure areas) cannot be provided. These cookies don’t gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you’ve been on the internet. These cannot be restricted or blocked.
B. Performance Cookies: These cookies collect information about how you use a website, for example which pages you go to most often and if you get any error messages from certain pages. These cookies don’t gather information that identifies you. All information these cookies collect is anonymous and is only used to improve how a website works. These cookies are not used to target you with online advertising. Without these cookies we cannot learn how our website is performing and make the necessary improvements that could enhance your browsing experience. These can be restricted or blocked.
C. Functionality Profile Cookies: These cookies allow a website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and tailor the website to provide enhanced features and content for you. For instance, they remember your log-in details and allow you to watch videos. They also ensure the onsite marketing and experience is relevant to you. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you’ve made to text size, font and other parts of pages that you can customise. The information these cookies collect may be anonymous and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites. Without these cookies, a website cannot remember choices you’ve previously made or personalise your browsing experience. These can be restricted or blocked.

They do this in order to provide you with ads that are more relevant to you and your interests. Although these cookies can track your visits to other websites, they don’t usually know who you are.

COOKIES WE USE
This is a list of the main cookies we use and what each is used for:
Cookie name: __ga
Expires: 2 years
Description: Used by Google Universal Analytics. Each unique browser that visits a page on the site is provided with a unique ID via this cookie. In this way, subsequent visits to the website via the same browser are recorded as belonging to the same (unique) visitor. Thus, if a person interacted with the website using different browsers, the Analytics reports would track this activity under two unique visitors. Similarly, if the same browser were used by two different visitors, but with a separate computer account for each, the activity would be recorded under two unique visitor IDs. On the other hand, if the browser happens to be used by two different people sharing the same computer account, one unique visitor ID is recorded, even though two unique individuals accessed the site.
Cookie name: __gid
Expires: 24 hours
Description: Used by Google Universal Analytics. This cookie is used to collect information about how visitors use our site. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the site. The cookie collects information in an anonymous form, including the number of visitors to the site, where visitors have come to the site from and the pages they visited.
Cookie name: __gat
Expires: 1 minute
Description: Used by Google Universal Analytics. This cookie is used to throttle request rate and therefore limits the collection of data when there is high traffic on web pages.
Cookie name: PHPSESSID
Expires: When browser is closed.
Description: The PHPSESSID cookie is a PHP session cookie that is able to store data when the user clicks through to different webpages. It is used to store items in visitors’ shopping baskets and may also present messages to the visitor when they submit forms through the website, such as notifying the visitor of any incorrect details submitted.
