Our Cookie Policy

How we use cookies

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree – and most browsers assume that you will – the file is added and the cookie helps the website tailor its operations to you  by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

Large commercial online shopping sites use cookies in very sophisticated ways. Our site only uses cookies in simple ways such as, if you submit a comment, to show you when your comment is awaiting moderation and when it has been approved.

In the future we may use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This would help us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website. We would only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then remove the data from the system.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us when you enter a comment.

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.

Disabling cookies

Most browsers allow you to reject cookies, either completely or selectively.

To find out how to do so, visit AboutCookies.org

What happens if I set my browser to reject cookies?

The website will still work and you will be able to get the information you need.

But you may not be able to submit comments, and as we develop the site there may be other functions that either don’t work as well or don’t work at all without cookies.

If you ask us not to use cookies, we won’t be able to remember that you did ask us that, so you may find that we will keep on asking whether you want to accept cookies.
