A cookie is a small file that asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets your computer know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual, so the web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by showing us which pages you find useful and which pages you don’t. Other than the data you choose to share with us, a cookie doesn’t give us access to your computer or any information about you.
You can choose whether to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually change your browser settings to say no to cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website though.
To provide you with better ways of accessing information from this website we use Google Analytics to help us to deliver the best online experience to you and other website users. This helps us to analyse data about webpage traffic and tailor our website to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes though, and then the data is removed from the system.
Links to other websites
Now and then our website may contain links to other websites we think are interesting or useful. But once you’ve used these links to leave our site, we don’t have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement.
