Generally they are used to improve your experience and inform marketers of your journey, so that in turn they can make improvements to the website.
‘Essential’ cookies let you move around the website ensuring that the vital features work. These cookies don’t gather any information that could be used for marketing purposes or remembering where you have been on the internet.
We use essential cookies to:
• Format text
• Keep users logged in when using the intranet
• Control our site through the content management system (CMS)
Essential cookies will NOT be used to:
• Gather information that could then be used to advertise products or
services to you
• Remember your username or preference beyond your current visit

We use a Vimeo embedded video player on our site. Vimeo states that their embeddable video player uses first-party cookies that they consider essential to the video player experience. They do not use third-party analytics or advertising cookies when their video player appears on our website.
Please be aware that if you leave our embedded player and visit a Vimeo website, Vimeo and third parties will set cookies in your browser. Vimeo sets essential cookies to enable certain features and remember your preferences. For example, cookies keep you logged in, allow you to purchase items, and maintain your language and volume settings. Third parties set cookies for both essential and non-essential purposes including analytics (e.g., Google Analytics) and advertising (e.g. Google DoubleClick for Publishers).
