Cookies are small text files that can be used by web sites to make a user's experience more efficient. UK law states that we can store cookies on your machine if they are essential to the operation of this site but for all others, we need your permission to do so.

Our website does use some non-essential cookies. We do not do this to track individual users or to identify them, or to sell advertisement, but we use this to gain useful knowledge about how the site is used so that we can keep improving it for our users. Without the knowledge, we gain from the systems that use these cookies we would not be able to provide the service we do.

The cookies we use are "analytical" cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the site when they are using it such as the typical length of stay on the site or the average number of pages a user views. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.

Please note that third parties (including, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services – or the Google Maps link on our website) may also use cookies, over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies.

What happens if I say 'no' to allowing cookies in my browser?

The website will still work, and you will be able to get the information you need from the site. But as we develop how the site works and offer more sophisticated services through it this will most likely rely on cookies.

For example, if we begin to tailor the content to your interests as expressed by your browsing behavior this depends on cookies. If you have declined cookies, then this kind of service will not be available to you.

We use cookies to count the number of people who use the site and to analyse how they use it. We do this to make sure that our sites are as good as they can be, and this is the primary evidence we use when trying to improve what we offer to users.

If you decline cookies, then your site usage won't be counted and measured in this way, so we won't be able to take your actions into account when analysing data and seeking to improve our service based on that analysis.

More Information

Hopefully, that has clarified things for you and as was previously mentioned if there is something that you aren't sure whether you need or not it's usually safer to leave cookies enabled in case it does interact with one of the features you use on our site.
