How we use cookies

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer or device when you visit a website. Cookies are used by most websites, and have several different functions.

At a basic level cookies will:

  • Allow the site to work properly, and help keep it secure.
  • Help site owners understand how people use the website.
  • Make the site easier to use by remembering information that you’ve entered.
  • Improve your experience by showing you information that’s relevant to you.


What cookies do ACT use?

Google Analytics cookies

These cookies help us improve the way our website works. Although Google is best known for its search engine, it also provides tools to website owners. Google Analytics tells the website owner how many people use each page, which pages are most commonly viewed, or whether any errors occurred. It does not tell us any personal details about you.

Cookies cookie

In order to prevent the cookie notification bar from appearing on subsequent visits to our websites, we set a cookie on your computer or device to tell us not to show it.

Your consent

By continuing to use our website, you consent to our use of cookies as outlined above. If you do not want our website to place cookies on your computer or device you should change your cookie settings through your web browser. You can do this at any time through your browser’s options menu. Each browser works in a different way, so you’ll need to search for ‘cookie settings’ in your browser’s help section to find out how to do this.

Please note: if you choose to view the website without cookies you will see the cookies notification each time you visit. This is because without cookies you will appear to be a new visitor each time. If your browser has been set not to use cookies our website will not override this but you will still see the notification bar. Dismissing the bar will not set cookies if you have them turned off.
