Cookie Policy

We want to improve your experience on our website, so we collect cookies.

Cookie Policy: Welcome

Cookies are small text files that are sent to and stored on your computer, smartphone or other devide for accessing the internet, whenever you visit our website. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers. Cookies are specific to the server that created them and cannot be accessed by other servers, which means that they cannot be used to track your movements elsewhere around the web. Please note that passwords and credit card numbers are not stored in cookies. By using our website, you agree that we can place cookies on your device.

Most websites visited will use cookies in order to improve your user experience by enabling that website to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’).

Most websites use cookies for a variety of reasons, such as to determine preferences, let users navigate between pages efficiently, verify the user and carry out other essential security; these are all termed as ‘non-evasive’.

Cookies make the interaction between you and the website faster and easier. If a website doesn’t use cookies, it'll think you're a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site – for example, when you enter your login details and move to another page it won’t recognise you and it won’t be able to keep you logged in.

Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting (‘first party cookies’) or they may be set by other websites who run content on the page you're viewing (‘third party cookies’).

We don't sell the information collected by cookies, nor do we disclose the information to third parties, except where required by law (for example to government bodies and law enforcement agencies).

NB. Persistant cookies remain after your browser is closed.
