Unless you have an account for this site, and you log-in, this web server does not send cookies to your computer. If you are ‘just visiting’ you should NOT receive cookies from us (and we would be keen to know if you did!).
There is one exception to this:
To help us tune our website, we use Google Analytics (“Analytics”). It is a service provided by Google, Inc., which helps us understand how people use the site. To do this, Analytics uses “cookies” technology, which are small text files placed temporarily on your computer.
The information generated by Analytics is stored by Google, sometimes on servers in the United States. Google makes the information anonymous before storing it. We use the analysis that Analytics creates from the data, however we do not have direct access to any of the data set itself.
We do not collect any personally-identifiable information about visitors to this site, except in the case of those who have an account on the site and choose to log-in when they visit. If you do not log in, your activity is not followed in an identifiable way.
Google has its own terms of service for Analytics, which we recommend you read, however we use the Analytics service in good faith, believing it to be both legal in the UK and in the interests of both ourselves and our web site users. As part of Analytics’ terms of service, Google says it will not associate your IP address with any other data the company holds.
There are, however, links from this site to third parties, such as YouTube (Google Inc.), news feeds from media organisations, and other links included in the site’s content. We have no control over, and do not monitor the activities of these third parties with respect to privacy. We would expect you to exercise the normal cautions you do when using any other unfamiliar web sites, and we will not be held responsible for organisations outside our control.
Please note: By continuing to use this website, beyond this document and the page on which you first ‘landed’, our understanding is that you consent to the processing of data about your visit in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
