Cookies are small text files stored on your computer by your browser. They're used for many things, such as remembering whether you've visited the site before, so that you remain logged in - or to help us work out how many new website visitors we get each month.
They contain information about the use of your computer but don't include personal information about you (they don't store your name, for instance).
We may collect information automatically when you visit this website, using cookies.
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’ve given (eg your postcode) so you don’t need to keep entering it;
» measuring how you use the website so we can make sure it meets your needs; and
» keeping the contrast styles you select through our accessibility tools while they browse the site.
Our cookies aren’t used to identify you personally. They’re just here to make the site work better for you.
We use Google Analytics to collect information about how people use this site. We do this to make sure it’s meeting its users’ needs and to understand how we could do it better.
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. We do not allow Google to use or share our analytics data.
