You can set your browser not to accept cookies and this document tells you how to remove cookies from your browser (see the section below "Can you turn cookies off”). However, in a few cases some of our website features may not function as a result.

What are the different types of cookies?

Session cookies - A session cookie only exists while you are reading or navigating the website. These cookies are only stored on your device (which may mean a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or mobile phone) during a single visit to the site (called a ‘browser session’). They do not do anything unless you are actively browsing, and they are deleted as soon as you close your browser.

Persistent cookies - These remain on your device until they are set to expire, or you choose to delete them from your browser cache. They are activated each time you visit the website that created them.

Third-party cookies - First-party cookies are cookies set with the same domain (or its subdomain) as your browser's address bar. Third-party cookies are cookies set with domains different from the one shown on the address bar. Foresight uses Google Analytics to collect statistical data relating to our website’s traffic. This is not used to collect any personal data about you.

Our use of cookies

We use "Necessary” cookies to make our website work, for example by setting the appropriate language version of the website for you, for security authentication, network management, and accessibility. We do not require your consent to use these necessary cookies, but you can disable them if you prefer by changing your browser settings as explained below, although doing so will likely mean that our site will not work as you would expect.

We do not set other optional types of cookies (performance, functionality, advertising, targeting) on your device unless you consent by enabling them through the pop up which appears on your first visit to this website; this will set a cookie on your device to remember your preferences, so the pop up will not usually automatically reappear on subsequent visits.

You may withdraw your consent at any time by following the instructions below.

Can you turn cookies off?
