What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files, not software! They are stored by the browser (e.g. Google hrome, Microsoft Edge) on your computer or mobile phone. They allow us to store things like user preferences. Essentially cookies are a memory for our website which remembers you when you come back.

How do we use cookies?

During your visit the site may generate the following cookies:

Anonymous analytics cookies
Geotargetting cookies
Anonymous analytics cookies:

Every time someone visits our website, software provided by Google generates an “anonymous analytics cookie”.

These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before. Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies and, if you don’t, we generate new ones.

This allows us to track how many individual users we have, and how often they visit the site. We are also able to see where you visit within our site so we can better tailor the information and design of the site for our users.

We cannot use these cookies to identify you as a person. We use them to gather statistics, for example, the number of visits to a page.

If you have registered with our site and are logged in, we will also know the details you gave to us for this, such as your username and email address.

Geotargetting cookies

These cookies are used to work out what country you are in from the information supplied by your browser when you click on a web page. This cookie is completely anonymous, and we only use it to help ensure our content is only seen by the people that most want to see it.

Other third party cookies

On some pages of our website we have buttons or links which other organisations may also set their own anonymous cookies. They do this to track the success of their application, or to customise the application for you. Our website and staff cannot access these cookies, and the partner website cannot access any other data than their own button on our website.

For example, when you share a blog from our site using a social-media sharing button (for example twitter), the social network that has created the button will record that you have done this.
