This web site uses Cookies. There are 4 types of Cookie...

i. Essential. For example, a cookie used to mark a visitor as a logged-in user

ii. Non-essential but benign. For example, remembering a user’s email address on a login form. This isn’t essential for website functionality but makes it easier to use.

iii. Moderately intrusive. These cookies are used to track user behaviour but in a minimally intrusive way. For example, the default cookies used by Google Analytics are available only to the owners of the site the user is browsing and don’t reveal personally identifiable information.

iv. Highly intrusive. For example, the Facebook ‘Like’ button or cookies that track products you’ve looked at on a retail website and send you adverts for those items when you visit other sites. Highly-intrusive cookies leak user information to third parties or track personally identifiable information about your users.

This site uses i) Essential – cookies only for all its functionality, and also uses iii) Moderately Intrusive – for Google Analytics only.

Cookies

To make this site simpler, we sometimes place small data files on your computer. These are known as cookies. Most big websites do this too.

They improve things by:

  • remembering settings, so you don't have to keep re-entering them whenever you visit a new page
  • remembering information you've given (eg your postcode) so you don't need to keep entering it
  • measuring how you use the website so we can make sure it meets your needs

Our cookies aren't used to identify you personally. They're just here to make the site work better for you. Indeed, you can manage and/or delete these small files as you wish.

To learn more about cookies and how to manage them, visit AboutCookies.org. Or please read on to find out more about how and where we use cookies.

Measuring website usage (Google Analytics)

We use Google Analytics to collect information about how people use this site. We do this to make sure it’s meeting its users’ needs and to understand how we could do it better.

Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got here and what you click on. We do not collect or store your personal information (e.g. your name or address) so this information cannot be used to identify who you are. We do not allow Google to use or share our analytics data.
