Cookie Policy

To make this site simpler, small data files are placed on your computer. These are known as cookies. Most big websites do this too. They improve things by:

  • remembering settings, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you visit a new page
  • remembering information you have given (e.g. your postcode) so you don’t need to keep entering it
  • measuring how you use the website so it can be improved to meet your needs.

Cookies are not used to identify you personally. They are just here to make the site work better for you. Indeed, you can manage and/or delete these small files as you wish.

This website uses Google Analytics to collect information about how people use this site, but does so in a way that meets its users’ needs and helps it understand how the site could be improved. Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got here and what you click on. We do not collect or store your personal information (e.g. your name or address) so this information cannot be used to identify who you are. There are also cookies that store basic data on your interactions with Drupal, the Content Management System running this website.
