This cookie stores information about the categories of cookies the site uses and whether visitors have given or withdrawn consent for the use of each category. This enables site owners to prevent cookies in each category from being set in the user’s browser, when consent is not given. The cookie has a normal lifespan of one year, so that returning visitors to the site will have their preferences remembered. It contains no information that can identify the site visitor.
This cookie is associated with sites using Google Tag Manager to load other scripts and code into a page. Without it, other scripts may not function correctly. The end of the name is a unique number which is also an identifier for an associated Google Analytics account.
Cookie associated with sites using CloudFlare, used to speed up page load times. Used to override any security restrictions based on the IP address the visitor is coming from. It does not contain any user identification information.

How do I change my cookie settings?
The first time you visit our website from an internet browser you will be asked to set your cookie preferences using a ‘cookie manager’. The only cookies that will be delivered by default are those that are strictly necessary for website performance. All other types of cookies will be set to ‘off’ unless you choose to turn them on. You may need to refresh your page for your settings to take effect. If you click accept all cookies then all types of cookies will be switched on.
Your preferences will be remembered for one year. This is because the ‘consent cookie’ will expire after one year. You will be then asked to choose your preferences again. If you wish to reset your cookie preferences using the cookie manager please click here.
