ABOUT THIS POLICY

This Cookie Policy tells you what to expect when our website collects personal information. It applies to the information we collect about our visitors, and those who login to our website.

WHAT ARE COOKIES?

A ‘cookie’ is a small text file that is delivered by our website server onto your computer whilst you visit our website, which can subsequently be used by the website to identify particular devices and thereby remember your website preferences and login details. Most cookies will not collect information that identifies you and instead will collect more general information such as how you arrived at and used our website, or your general geographical location.

WHY ARE COOKIES NEEDED?

Cookies make websites work better and they are a standard part of most modern websites. For example, they remember the items you’ve placed in your online shopping cart so that the items appear at the checkout when you make your purchase. Another example would be when you login to webmail services such as Hotmail or Gmail: on such occasions a cookie is generated that confirms you are logged in and when you log off, the cookie is deleted. This means if someone goes back to your webmail address on your computer, you will still be logged out – and they won’t be able to read your emails.

More detail on how businesses use cookies is available at: www.allaboutcookies.org
