Cookie Policy

[This Cookie Policy was last updated on the 24th July 2019]

This policy explains what exactly cookies are, the different types of cookies we use and how they will affect your experience on this website. Please read it carefully so you have all the information you need to be comfortable about how we use cookies when you are visiting and using our website.

About cookies

A cookie is information that a website puts on your computer so that it can remember something about you at a later time. Typically, a cookie records your preferences when using a particular site. It recognises you when you navigate different pages of the website, or return to the website.

However, it is important to understand that cookies do not collect nor store any personally identifiable information about you. In other words, you are remembered as an anonymous user, and the information stored by cookies is never linked to your name.

Each request for a Web page is independent of all other requests. For this reason, the Web page server has no memory of what pages it has sent to a user previously or anything about your previous visits. A cookie is a mechanism that allows the server to remember what you have done before on the website and make your experience better.

As an example, cookies are commonly used to rotate the banner ads that a site sends so that it doesn't keep sending the same add as it sends you a succession of requested pages. They can also be used to customise pages for you based on your browser type or other information you may have provided the Web site. You will find below full details of the cookies used on this website.

You can view the cookies that have been stored on your hard disk (although the content stored in each cookie may not make much sense to you). The location of the cookies depends on the browser.

There are 4 types of cookies used on this website:

What are my options

If you do accept the use of cookies in accordance with this policy, you will be able to use our website normally, albeit with some minor performance issues.

Even if you agree to our using cookies, you can always manually disable or delete cookies in your browser. This approach may allow a more gradual approach as you will be able to accept some cookies and reject others. Most browsers allow you to refuse cookies. Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of our websites.

You can also delete cookies already stored on your computer. Obviously, doing this may have a negative impact on the usability of our website. However, please note that the deleted cookies will be reapplied the next time you visit our website.

Changing this policy

Our policies may need to be changed from time to time to reflect changes in our business or and current legislations. Please check our website on a regular basis to see any recent changes. We will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of user information collected in the past without the consent of affected users.
