Cookies we use

BIGipServerZebedee cookie & TS01237438 cookie - are set when You move from one page to another page in Our site; classed as "strictly necessary" for the functioning of Our site, and as such they are exempt from the normal requirement of user consent for the use of cookies. Neither of these two cookies store personally identifiable information, and both of them (as "session cookies") are deleted when You close Your browser session. Coookieconsent_dismiss cookie is set when You click the “Got it!” message about cookie usage.  This occurs on Your first usage only of Our website from an IP address.  If You visit Our website from a different IP address (a different computer or following a reboot of your router), the cookie consent banner will be displayed again. More info: BIGipServerZebedee cookie is part of the back-end architecture of the hosting service that manages the site. It belongs to the class of "load-balancing cookies". The load-balancing cookie is required to track which server You are communicating with, in order to present a consistent user experience as You move from page to page. It routes data and page requests to the correct server and so ensures that the content of the page loads quickly and effectively. The TS cookie basically has to do with enforcing elements in the security policy with regard to database management in the hosting servers.  The Cookieconsent cookie confirms that You have agreed to accept cookies from Our site.
