What Are "Cookies"?
A cookie is a small file which, once you have given permission, is placed on your computer’s hard drive. Its purpose is to track your use of a particular website, so that the website owner can get information such as: which pages of their website are being visited; for how long; and how people are moving through their website. This enables better websites to be built and therefore better experiences for the visitor.
What Cookies Does This Site Use?
The only types of cookie that we use on this website are ‘standard tracking cookies’ from Google Analytics. These gather anonymous data – that is, there is no personal information gathered about the user, you are not identified. Google Analytics helps owners and web developers see how their site is being visited so that they can develop better websites.
These cookies require your permission under UK law and EU Directive 2002/58/EC before being used. Your permission is gained through the very common ‘cookie warning’ you will see on most webpages you visit. These warnings will pop up in a number of guises, usually at the top or bottom of the web page, or sometimes in a separate box. You have to click on the warning to accept the cookies and get rid of the pop-up.
You can opt out of receiving Google Analytics cookies altogether if you wish.
You can also control how your web browser (i.e. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox etc.) handles cookies, and for how long it allows them to remain on your computer. See the ‘Help’ files for your own browser for details on how to do this.
Not accepting cookies can sometimes prevent you from fully accessing all of a website’s functionality.
