These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. Without these cookies, some parts of our site or the service being requested will be impossible to provide.
These cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalization, including remembering user choices, preferred language, or location. They may be set by us or by third-party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.
These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site.
All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
If you would like to change your current cookie settings, you can do that by clicking here.
We are very supportive of the drive to respect privacy and to be transparent about what information is being captured. Under the latest GDPR guidance everyone has the right to explicitly give permission for data capture unless there is a defined legitimate interest and a need for data to be captured, under these circumstances we will only store the minimum data required and it will be held for the shortest period of time practical (see storage guidance here). You still retain the right to request to know what data is held about you and to have it either corrected or deleted. You can read about your rights here.
The second type of cookies are what we call 'Performance' and they help us to capture information about what pages are being viewed and how the site is being used so we can improve the design and content.
The final type of cookies are 'Functional' and they are usually required to improve the functionality in certain parts of the site, so for example we may use techniques to reduce spam being submitted to our contact forms by attempting to detect if the user submitting the form is a robot or real person.
You will have the choice to reject our Performance or Functional cookies or indeed both. Under these circumstances we have tried to ensure the site is still as useful as possible to you, but there may be some mild restrictions on what we can achieve without them.
