Cookie and Website Policy

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers downloaded on to your computer when you access certain websites. Like virtual door keys, cookies unlock a computer's memory and allow a website to recognise users when they return to a site by opening doors to different content or services. 

As our website opens, you will be asked if a cookie can be placed on your computer's hard drive. If you agree, the file is added and the cookie will help analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Like a key, a cookie itself does not contain information, but when it is read by a browser it can help a website improve the service delivered and arrange content to match your preferred interests more quickly by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

If you choose to decline cookies, this may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. 

We use Google Analytics to identify which pages are being used on our website. These cookies allow us to count page visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our website.

Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not 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. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.
