This site, like all others, uses small files called cookies, which help us to customise your experience. This page aims to tell you more about cookies and how you can control them.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files, not software! They are stored by your browser (e.g. Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge) on your computer or mobile phone. These small files allow us to store information such as user preferences. Essentially cookies are a memory for our website which remembers you when you come back.

Which cookies do we store?

During your visit the site may generate the following cookies:

Anonymous analytics cookies
Geotargetting cookies
 

Anonymous analytics cookies:

Every time someone visits our website, software provided by Google generates an “anonymous analytics cookie”.

These cookies can tell us if you have visited the site before. If your browser doesn’t already have cookies stored for our site, we generate new ones. This allows us to track how many individual users we have, and how often they visit the site. We are also able to see where people visit within our site so we can better tailor the information and design of the site for our users.

We cannot use these cookies to identify you as a person. We use them purely to gather statistics, for example, the number of visits to a page, the amount of times a blog has been read or how many times a link is clicked on a page for example.

Geotargetting cookies

These cookies are used to work out what country you are in from the information supplied by your browser when you click on a web page. This cookie is completely anonymous, and we only use it to help target our content and to ensure the right people are accessing our information.

Other third party cookies

On some pages of our website we have buttons or links which will take you to outside websites where other organisations may also set their own anonymous cookies. They do this to track the success of their application, or to customise the application for you. Our website and staff cannot access these cookies, and the partner website cannot access any other data than their own button on our website.

For example, when you share a blog from our site using a social-media sharing button (for example twitter), the social network that has created the button will record that you have done this.

How do I turn cookies off?

It is possible to stop your browser accepting cookies, or to stop it accepting cookies from a particular website.

All modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. You can usually find these settings in the Options or Preferences menu of your browser. To understand these settings, the following links may be helpful, or you can use the Help option in your browser for more details.
