If you have found this page, then you are probably either finding out about our approach to the cookie law or have found it by accident.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a web server to a web browser, which enables the server to collect information from the browser.  We use cookies to identify you when you visit this website, to keep track of your browsing patterns and build up a demographic profile.

Our use of cookies also allows registered users to be presented with a personalised version of the website and the forms.

The cookies we use

We use very few cookies; the only information we collect about users is through Google Analytics.

Google Analytics is the industry standard way of tracking visits to websites.  You can find more information about how it uses cookies on the Google Analytics support pages.  Without Google Analytics we won’t understand how you got to our website, what you liked or what you found pointless, in other words we use this information to improve your experience of our website.  We cannot identify individuals through the Analytics data, it only provides us with information on trends and patterns of site use.

If you would like to be removed from being tracked by our Analytics, then please email with your IP address and we will block this from being tracked.

Fatally allergic to cookies?

You can block them using your browser  The best explanation of this we’ve found is from a site that is run by Pinsent Masons, a rather large firm of solicitors.  This site is also referenced by most government websites, so is about as good as it gets.

Most browsers will allow you to turn off cookies. Please note however that turning off cookies may restrict your use of our website.

The other way to opt-out of cookies is to click ‘Decline’ in the cookies alert at the top of the page when you visit our site.

Good luck with getting off the grid!
