We may obtain information about your general internet usage by using a "cookie" file which is stored on the hard drive of your computer.
A cookie consists of information sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.
We may use both “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies on the website.
We will use the session cookies to keep track of you whilst you navigate the website.
We will use the persistent cookies to enable our website to recognise you when you visit.
Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our website. In addition, as the cookie is stored on your computer, the data gathered by the cookie remains under your control.
Session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date.
Most browsers allow you to reject all cookies, whilst some browsers allow you to reject just third party cookies. For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector. Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this one.
