Critical CSS cookies

To ensure our website loads as quickly as possible, we serve a subset of CSS (Cascading Stylesheets) on your first visit to our website – commonly referred to as "critical CSS". On repeat visits, the browser caches this CSS and therefore we don't need to serve these styles. We achieve this by setting a cookie on your computer to determine your first visit from subsequent visits.
