By using this website you accept the cookie usage on this website and we may collect and process anonymous information about your use of this website and accompanying website services, such as some of the pages you visit and some of the searches you perform. Such information is used by us to help us improve the contents of the site and to compile, for internal market research purposes, aggregate statistics about individuals using it.
This kind of anonymous information can be obtained by the use of “cookies”. A “cookie” in website terms is not a biscuit but is a small piece of information that is sent to your browser and stored on your computer’s hard drive. It enables a web server to communicate with a user’s computer and remember information between pages or on the next visit. You can find more information about cookies on the What Are Cookies website.
There are three types of “cookies” that may be used on this website. Essential functional “cookies” or session “cookies” for any pages that require a login or on a contact form cannot be turned off as they would stop certain aspects of the site from functioning. The other two types of “cookies” are non-essential and these are turned on by default. The first of these non-essential “cookies” are first-party and they are directly related to this website. First-party cookies enable Google Analytics to work. The other type of these non-essential “cookies” are third-party and they are related to other websites for advertising. You can turn off third party cookies within your web browser and the site will still function correctly.
The first-party “cookies” that are used on this site are those used by Google Analytics and one called “cookiesAllowed” that expires after a year. We may have sources of advertising from time to time and some may use “cookies” related to the advertiser’s website and others only if you click on the link. The majority would store an identifier using their own name but some, such as Google Adwords may use a third-party website (Google uses called DoubleClick). You can find details of the cookies used by Google Analytics and about Google’s partnership with DoubleClick.
With most web browsers it is possible to configure your Internet browser so that it can refuse new “cookies”, prompt you to accept a “cookie” or disable “cookies” altogether. Modern browsers also give you the option of accepting first party cookies but refusing third party cookies. How you do this will depend on the Internet browser you use. For further details on “cookies”, we recommend that you visit All About Cookies.
