What happens if I disable cookies?
This depends on which cookies you disable, but in general there’s a danger that a website may not operate properly if cookies are switched off. If you only disable third party cookies, you may, for example, be prevented from making purchases on websites. If you disable all cookies, you may also be unable to complete purchases and carry out further actions on a website.
This website uses Google Analytics to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. This is used to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is anonymous. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.
We collect personal information. We may use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked/permitted us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails (if available) or by emailing our data protection officer.
