Cookies Statement

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer by web sites that you visit, which are then sent back to the originating web site on each subsequent visit or to another web site that recognises them.

Cookies are widely used in order to either make web sites work or to improve their efficiency as well as to provide information to their owners and others. Cookies are particularly useful to site owners because they allow a web site to recognise a user’s device.

Most web browsers allow you to control how cookies are used through their settings. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage them, visit:-

Cookies do lots of different jobs, such as letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences and generally improving your online experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.

We use cookies on our web sites to improve your experiences of them.

The law requires us to notify you that the site is using cookies and to seek your consent for any cookies that are not strictly necessary. It also requires us to seek your consent for any third party cookies that this site sets, which are not directly under our control.

Cookie Classificatiom

We never share cookies with sites outside of our control. In order to help you to understand our use of cookies, we use the categories suggested by the International Chamber of Commerce in their UK Cookie Guide.

These categories are summarised below:-

Cookie Classification
Category Description
Strictly Necessary These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the web site and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the web site. Without these cookies services you have asked for, like shopping baskets or ebilling, cannot be provided. We do not need to ask for your prior consent before using these types of cookies. We must acquire prior consent in all other cases and provide you with enough information to help you make an informed choice.
Performance These cookies collect information about how visitors use a web site, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don't collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a web site works.
Functionality These cookies allow the web site to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, a web site may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other web sites.
Targeting/Advertising These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the web site operator's permission. They remember that you have visited a web site and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation.

The UK Information Commissioner takes a very narrow view in defining a Strictly Necessary Cookie. It is only strictly necessary if the site will otherwise not function from the visitor's perspective. Cookies that might be important to the operator but which nonetheless would not prevent the web site from operating are not deemed to fall into this category.
