As is common practice with almost all modern websites, we use a feature of your internet browser called a ‘cookie’ on our website. We do not use ‘cookies’ to retrieve personal information about you from your computer. We will only gain such information if you have knowingly and willingly provided such information to us.
Your online privacy
You can visit our website without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself.
We promise to treat any personal information about you securely, fairly and lawfully. We are committed to protecting your privacy.
When we ask you for personal information online it will only be in response to you actively applying for or using one of our online products or services.
What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added, and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about webpage traffic and improve our website and tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system. This data does not reflect any personal information.
Overall, cookies help us to provide you with a better website by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie does not in any way give us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

These cookies may track things such as how long you spend on the site and the pages that you visit. This helps our website to continue to produce engaging & personalised content.
If you would prefer to prevent Google Analytics collecting data in this way, Google have developed an opt-out browser add-on (see more details here). You can also learn more about the opt-out and how to properly install the browser add-on here.

Disabling Cookie (Maintenance)
You can set your browser to accept or reject all specific ‘cookies’. You can also set your browser to alert you each time a ‘cookie’ is presented to your computer. You can delete ‘cookies’ that have been stored on your computer but remember, if you prevent us from placing ‘cookies’ on your computer during your visit, or you subsequently delete a ‘cookie’ that has been placed, it will not be possible for you to use our website effectively.
By disabling your ‘cookies’ from the browser settings, you will be restricting the ‘cookies’ that are used to manage this website and this will have an impact on how the website will function. This will apply to all websites once ‘cookies’ are disabled via your browser settings and not only this website.
If you would like to restrict or block ‘cookies’ that are set by us and other websites, you can do this through your web browser settings. Instructions for how to do this for the four most used web browsers are below. For other web browsers, please use the Help function on your browser for details on how to do this. For information on how to restrict or block ‘cookies’ on your mobile phone, you will need to refer to your handset manual.
If there is something that you are not sure whether you need or not, it is usually safer to leave cookies enabled in case it does interact with one of the features you use on our site. However, if you are still looking for more information, then you can contact us by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
