Cookie policy

Our website - as almost all websites do - uses cookies to improve your user experience. Cookies enable a website to 'remember' you, either for the duration of your visit (using a 'session cookie') or for repeat visits (using a 'persistent cookie').

A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website's server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers. It allows a website to remember things like your preferences, or what's in your shopping basket. If a website doesn't use cookies, it will think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site. So for example, when you enter your login details and move to another page, the site won't recognise you and won't be able to keep you logged in.

Our cookies allow us to:

  • Make our website's basic functionality work
  • Improve the speed/security of the site
  • Continuously improve our website for you

We do not use cookies to collect any personally identifiable or sensitive information, nor do we pass such data to third parties

Granting us permission to use cookies

If the settings on the software that you are using to view this website (your browser, be it on your computer or phone etc.) are adjusted to accept cookies we take this - along with your continued use of our website - to mean that you grant permission for such usage. Should you wish to remove or not use cookies from our site you can do so by accessing your browser's settings, however doing so will likely mean that our site will not work as you would expect.

Our own cookies

Our website is built using PHP. PHP uses a cookie called a session ID as a way to preserve certain data across subsequent accesses. There is no way to prevent this cookie being set other than to not use our site, as it is vital for all site operation.
