Our cookie policy

Cookies are used routinely by almost every website you might visit, for a variety of purposes. Since the introduction of a law about data protection in the European Union, this website (and every other one that has visitors from the EU) must make people aware of how we use cookies, and gain their consent for doing so.

So here's how we use cookies :

Measuring our visitors - We use 'Google Analytics' to help us understand how people use this website. It tells us things like which pages you view within the site, how you arrived here, and which type of browser you use. All of this information remains anonymous, so we don’t know who you are; we only that somebody visited the site. The information helps us understand which parts of our sites are doing well, and which could be improved.

Facebook, Twitter and other social networks - These services provide links, which we use on this website, to allow you to share the site on your social media. If you use their services they'll know if you’re logged in, and that you visited this site. We don't have any access to their information or the cookies that they use.

Advertising - Our advertising partners use cookies to help them personalise the adverts they send to your web browser as you view this website, based on other pages you've visited. These same cookies are used on many sites across the web, and once again we do not have access to any of the information they gather.

If you keep using this site we'll assume you're happy with our use of cookies, and we'll also create a cookie so we know that you've already agreed to this policy next time you come to the website (unless you clear the cookie from your web browser cache). If you don't agree, then you can simply leave the website (but we'd rather you stayed, and hope you do!).
