Cookie Policy

Cookies are used on this website. Cookies are text files that are sent by a web server to a browser and then stored by the browser. Every time the browser requests a page from the server, a text file is sent back to the server. What this allows the web server to do is identify and track the web browser.

There are various different uses of cookies but essentially they allow websites to load content and respond to you as an individual based on how you use it. They don’t give you access to your computer and simply give information in the form of data that you have approved can be shared in your settings.

There are a few ways you can control what cookies you accept or decline. When you enter this website you will see a cookie notice. In this, you can accept the recommended settings or you can change which ones are accepted. You can change this at any time – just go to the little triangle with the C icon in the bottom left of the screen and click this to bring up the notice. Here you can change your settings.

Most browsers also allow you to change your settings to let you refuse to accept cookies. For example, in Internet Explorer you can do this by going to ‘Tools’, ‘Internet options’, ‘Privacy’ and then select ‘Block all cookies’ with the sliding selector. You should be aware though that this may make it difficult for you to use certain websites, including this one. Some cookies are needed to simply allow the page to load properly so if you block all cookies, it may cause problems in accessing websites or seeing all of the content.

Furthermore, ‘do not track’ (DNT) is a feature that some browsers offer as a default choice. If you enable it then websites receive a signal requesting that your browsing isn’t tracked. This may be for third party ads or social networks, or possibly analytics companies. If you would like to opt-out of Google Analytics, you can download an opt-out browser add-on to do this: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

You can also always delete any cookies stored on your computer. To find out more about cookies visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
