A cookie is a piece of code that a website uses to remember who you are or provide specific functions on a website. These cookies cannot be used to identify you personally and are used to improve services for you.
A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number.
The types of cookie we use
We use two types of cookies on this website:
Session cookies are temporary cookies stored until you leave the site, when they are automatically deleted.
This allows us to maintain information as you click between different pages of our site. For example, this stops you from having to repeatedly login in while using the site.
Persistent cookies remain for longer (though how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie). We use these to:
- Store your language preference if you select Welsh.
- Access anonymous statistics through Google Analytics. These allow us to understand how you are using our site and to help us improve the site. These cookies don’t identify you and all the data we see is anonymous.
You can accept or decline cookies by modifying the settings in your browser. However, you may not be able to use all the interactive features of our site if cookies are disabled.
