We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about webpage traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system. The cookie _utma keeps track of how many times a visitor has been to the site. Google Analytics uses this information to calculate return visitor behaviour. The cookies _utmb and _utmc are used to establish the length of a session. The cookie _utmz tracks how visitors reach the site, for example via a search engine result, a direct link, or an ad that links to the page.

We also use several WordPress cookies. The wordpress_[hash] cookie stores your authentication details on login. The wordpress_logged_in_[hash] cookie indicates when you’re logged in, and who you are for most interface use. Finally, wp-settings-{time}-[UID] cookies (where [UID] stands for your individual user ID) is used to customise your view of the interface, where applicable.
