What are cookies?
A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your device if you give us consent to do so. Cookies contain small amounts of information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive.
Cookies allow you to navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improve your user experience.
We use the following cookies.
Category 1: Strictly necessary
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around our website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website.
Category 2: Analytical/performance
We use Google Analytics to monitor the usage of our website and the website is built on WordPress, which provides us with some basic analytics and performance statistics that are generated by user traffic on our website. The analytical and performance cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. For information about Google Analytics cookies, see: https://policies.google.com/privacy.

Category 4: Targeting
These cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.
They do not store directly personal information but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.
These cookies are set by a range of social media services that we have added to the site to enable you to share our content with your friends and networks. They are capable of tracking your browser across other sites and building up a profile of your interests. This may impact the content and messages you see on other websites you visit. If you do not allow these cookies you may not be able to use or see these sharing tools.
Can I use this website without cookies?
