Since 26th May 2012, EU law requires websites to display messages to website visitors about cookies, and how they are used.
Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit.
Like a large percentage of the websites you are likely to visit, we use Google Analytics to collect data on traffic to our website. The data collected includes things like the number of people visiting our site each month, the number of people who came back for a second visit, which pages they looked at, which browser they used etc. Most cookies won’t collect information that identifies you specifically, and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use the website, or a user’s general location.
We do not sell the information collected by cookies, nor do we disclose the information to third parties (other than Google, who collect visitor data on our behalf, or if we are required by law).
If you wish to control what cookies are set on your device through our website then you can find out how to do this in the section below.
If you wish to restrict or block web browser cookies which are set on your device then you can do this through your browser settings; the Help function within your browser should tell you how. Alternatively, you may wish to visit www.aboutcookies.org, which contains comprehensive information on how to do this on a wide variety of desktop browsers. You can choose whether to accept cookies that are set by our website on the cookie settings page.
Our website will probably still work without cookies, but you will lose some features and functionality if you choose to disable them.
