The first time you use our website, a banner is displayed, stating that this website uses cookies. If you click "I understand", the banner is hidden and we create a cookie so our software knows not to show you the banner again.

We use a cookie as part of a defense mechanism against Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) attacks.

Turning cookies off

You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies. Doing so however will likely limit the functionality of our's and a large proportion of the world's websites as cookies are a standard part of most modern websites.

It may be that your concerns around cookies relate to so called "spyware". Rather than switching off cookies in your browser you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive.
