How we use cookies

A cookie is a small file relating to a website which is stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies do not contain any personal information about you and cannot be used to identify an individual user. The cookies we use are unobtrusive and anonymous – they allow us to understand what areas of the website are of interest to our visitors and allow web applications to respond to you as an individual which can help provide a better user experience.

We use analytics packages provided by Google to help us analyse data about webpage traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes. Google also has a privacy policy.

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 in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you.
