By law all UK companies are legally obliged to inform visitors whether or not their website uses small data files known as ‘cookies’. Information must be provided about which cookies are used and why they are used. This website does use cookies and your use of this website does imply acceptance of their use.

How do we use cookies at this website?

Cookies used at this website do not retain any personal data specifically about you, or the IP addresses of computers used by you to access this website.

We only use cookies at this website for the following purposes:

  • To render our ‘cookie’ message when you arrive at our website. This cookie tracks your session (visit) so that we do not continually display the ‘cookie’ message on every page you view.
  • For the purposes of compiling analytical data and statistics about your visit to our website

This cookie is a third party cookie provided by Google for use with its Analytics product.

So what are cookies?

Cookies are small text data files which are either automatically downloaded to, or accessed on a server by your web browser from a website you are visiting. Generally these data files are used to make visiting a particular website more convenient and give a better experience, or for programs like Google Analytics which helps website owners determine how visitors use their website.

They hold only a modest amount of data about the visitor and rarely collect or contain information of a personal nature. The cookie generally expires after your visit to the site, or within a specified number of hours/days after your visit.

In terms of third-party cookies like those used in Google Analytics the cookie will only give statistical information about your use of the site, but will retain no information personal to the visitor.

Are Cookies Enabled in my Browser?

Each browser can be set to accept, or decline cookies according to the version of browser used. Generally settings for cookies can be found in the ‘Options’ section of your browser. You can set to reject or decline all cookies, or set a privacy level which will accept some types of cookie but decline others. Alternatively you can remove cookies by choosing the option to delete temporary internet files.

Are cookies a threat to me?

A lot has been said about the use of cookies, but generally so long as you are not visiting suspicious websites they do not in themselves present a threat to privacy, since they can only be used to store information that the user has volunteered, or that the web server is already aware of. If you are concerned that the information you provide to a web server will not be treated as confidential then you should question whether you actually need to provide that information at all.
