Privacy and Cookies
We’re giving you this information as part of our initiative to comply with recent legislation, and to make sure we’re honest and clear about your privacy when using our website.
What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small file placed on your computer’s hard drive when you visit certain web pages. Cookies can have several different functions. They can allow web applications to respond to you as an individual, by tailoring its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
Other cookies, known as traffic log cookies, identify which pages are being viewed and how frequently. This allows analysis of data about web page traffic, which can help businesses understand their customers better and improve user experience.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie cannot harm your computer, and in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This will not affect the way the website functions.

Cookies are used on this site for the purpose of monitoring traffic to the website (traffic- log cookies), and to help us learn more about the pages you find useful. This allows us to improve our customer service and marketing, and helps with internal record keeping.
