The website you visit may set cookies directly, known as first-party cookies, or may trigger cookies set by other domain names, known as third-party cookies.
Most web browsers allow you to directly block all cookies, or just third-party cookies, through your browser settings. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of our website as this setting may interfere with proper site operation.

Changes to our Cookie Uses
We use the following cookies:
- Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our website e.g., use of e-billing services. These are session and persistent cookies, where the temporary cookies last until you close your browser and permanent cookies remain on your device until you delete them.
- Analytical or performance cookies. These allow us and our third-party service providers to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. These cookies generate aggregate statistics that are not associated with an individualized profile and are persistent cookies that generally last up to 2 years.
- Functionality cookies. These cookies enable helpful but non-essential website functions that improve your website experience. These are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
- Advertisement cookies. These cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.
