Our website uses cookies, as almost all websites do, to help provide you with the best experience we can. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer or mobile phone when you browse websites.

Granting us permission to use cookies

If the settings on your software that you are using to view this website (your browser) are adjusted to accept cookies we take this, and your continued use of our website, to mean that you are fine with this. Should you wish to remove or not use cookies from our site you can learn how to do this below, however doing so will likely mean that our site will not work as you would expect.

More about our own Cookies

We use cookies to make our website work. Sometimes these are called ‘Session’ cookies because they are usually only active for the current browser session. They are used for a number of reasons, including:

  • Determining if you are logged in or not
  • Remembering your search settings
  • Navigating around the site

There is no way to prevent these cookies being set other than to not use our site.

More about Anonymous Visitor Statistics Cookies

We use cookies to compile visitor statistics such as how many people have visited our website, what type of technology they are using (e.g. Mac or Windows) and browser type. This data helps to identify when our site isn’t working as it should, how long visitors spend on our site, what pages are visited, etc. This helps us to continuously improve our website. These so called ‘analytics’ programs also tell us on an ANONYMOUS basis, how people reached this site (e.g. from a search engine) and whether they have been here before. Should you choose to prevent us from collecting data on your visit to our site (we hope you won’t), please see “Turning Cookies Off”, below.
We use:

  • Google Analytics – this program runs on our website and collates anonymous data about the visitors to our website – nothing identifies who you are or any other personal information
  • Amazing Counter – counts unique visitors to the site

Turning Cookies Off

You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies (learn how here). Doing so however will likely limit the functionality of our’s and a large proportion of the world’s websites, as cookies are a standard part of most modern websites.
It may be that your concerns around cookies relate to so called “spyware”. Rather than switching off cookies in your browser you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive. Learn more about managing cookies with antispyware software.
