How We Use Cookies

What is a cookie?

Cookies are very small text files that a website can send to and store on your computer, tablet, smartphone or other internet enabled device to help remember preferences and deliver services.  We use cookies to customise your visits to our website to your individual preferences and help us provide you with the best possible service.  Most major websites use cookies and their use is standard on the Internet.  Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies but you can change your settings so that you are notified whenever you are sent a cookie.

Why are we telling you about them?

The Information Commissioner's Office has recently provided guidance on a new EU law that has been introduced to the UK.  This means consent has to be sought if storing cookies on a website visitor's device. This law is intended to protect your privacy as a website user and respect your personal preferences regarding the use of cookies. You can read more about this on the Information Commissioner's Office's website

We have provided this page to tell you more about the way we use cookies on this website.
