Cookies

We use Performance Cookies

These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources, so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site.

We use Google Analytics to provide this service, which uses first party cookies. The data collected is not shared with any other party.

The information we get through the use of these cookies is anonymised and we make no attempt to identify you or influence your experience of the site while you are visiting it. If you do not allow these cookies we will not be able to include your visit in our statistics.

If you have used a Do Not Track browser setting, we take this as a sign that you do not want to allow these cookies, and they will be blocked.

 

What are Cookies anyway?

Cookies are a kind of short-term memory for the web.  They are stored in your browser and enable a site to ‘remember’ little bits of information between pages or visits.

They are widely used to make the web experience more personal, which is generally seen as a positive thing. However, some cookies collect data across many websites, creating ‘behavioural profiles’ of people. These profiles can then be used to decide what content or adverts to show you. This use of cookies for targeting, in particular, is what the law was designed to highlight. By requiring websites to inform and obtain consent from visitors it aims to give web users more control over their online privacy.

 For further information visit www.aboutcookies.org   or www.allaboutcookies.org .
You can set your browser not to accept cookies and the above websites tell you how to remove cookies from your browser. However, in a few cases, some of our website features may not function as a result.
