This website contains “cookies”, which are used to optimise the efficiency of the Site for the user. Cookies are small pieces of information that a website can put on your hard drive in order for it to remember something about you at a later time. The information is in the form of a text file, which will only be understood by the web site that initially set the cookie. There are two types of cookies. One of these, known as a “persistent cookie”, is permanent and is stored on the user’s computer even after he or she has left the website in question and closed the web browser. The other is temporary, a so-called ”session cookie”, and is stored on the user’s computer during the Internet session. When the web browser is closed, the session cookie disappears from the user’s computer.
The Site uses both persistent and session cookies. These are used to:
- Count the number of visitors and analyse traffic
- Access and log into functions for news subscriptions and job applications
- Enable the Site to remember and display the language chosen by the user
