More about our Cookies

Our own cookies

This site uses cookies to provide some improved functionality, but none that collect data. The site will continue to function if cookies are switched off.

Third party functions

Our site, like most websites, includes functionality provided by third parties. A common example is an embedded YouTube video. Our site includes the following which use cookies:

  • YouTube
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Mailchimp (to provide an opt-in mailing list facility) 
  • Statcounter (collects anonymous visitor statistics)

Disabling these cookies will likely break the functions offered by these third parties. We may add additional third party functions and will endeavour to keep this policy up to date.

Cookies are set by:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter

We may add additional social functions and will endeavour to keep this policy up to date. The privacy implications on this will vary from social network to social network and will be dependent on the privacy settings you have chosen on these networks.

Anonymous Visitor Statistics Cookies

We use cookies to compile visitor statistics such as how many people have visited our website, what type of technology they are using (e.g. Mac or Windows which helps to identify when our site isn't working as it should for particular technologies), how long they spend on the site, what page they look at etc. This helps us to continuously improve our website. These 'analytics' programs also tell us, on an anonymous basis, how people reached this site (e.g. from a search engine) and whether they have been here before helping us to provide more relevant content in future.

We use:

  • Statcounter (collects anonymous visitor statistics)

Turning Cookies Off

You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies (Learn how here). Doing so however will likely limit the functionality of our's and a large proportion of the world's websites as cookies are a standard part of most modern websites

It may be that you concerns around cookies relate to so called "spyware". Rather than switching off cookies in your browser you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive. Learn more about managing cookies with antispyware software.
