Cookies Policy

To comply with the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations we periodically conduct a Cookie Audit of our website.

Our website uses a number of cookies to store data on our visitor’s computers.

For information about managing cookies, please see http://www.aboutcookies.org/.

Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we may transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser to enable our systems to recognise your browser and to provide additional site features.

The ‘help’ portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, cookies may allow you to take full advantage of our website and we recommend that you leave them turned on.

Cookies created by this website

This website creates a number of cookies, which are referred to as first party cookies as they are specific to the host site that created them. All the first-party cookies which are created do not store any personal or sensitive information, or anything that makes you personally identifiable to us. They are used for essential functionality such as security when processing form data or for analytics which helps us use anonymous visitor data to gain a better understanding of how people use our website.

Cookie Message

If you click the ‘close’ button on the Cookie Message that may appear along the bottom of our website, our web server will create a cookie called cookieclosed, which is essential for remembering that you have closed this message, and to prevent it from continually reappearing after you have closed the message. This cookie expires after 24 months from the initial ‘close’ of the message, after which the Cookie Policy message may reappear if you revisit our website.

Cookies created by external services

In addition to our first-party cookies, you may be served one or more third-party cookies during your visit to our website. By using our website we’ll assume that you are happy to receive all cookies on our website, but we have provided information at the top of this page on how you can set your browser to prevent cookies being created.

Third party cookies are cookies created by an external service when you use a page on our website. These cookies are specific to the third-party’s domain and accordingly the data held in them can be seen and managed by the third party and not by us. We control whether or not we use the third-party service with our website, and how it is integrated and presented on our website. We do not have control over the cookies themselves. We carefully select 3rd party services to use on our website; ones that are not likely to abuse your privacy according to the terms of their privacy policies.

Other cookies

From time to time we may use additional external services on our website which may create cookies on your device. As we add new services or make changes that use cookies, we will update this cookie policy with the details.

If you have any concerns about the cookies we create or the way we aim to attain consent from you, please contact us and we’ll be happy to answer your questions.
