We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

We use a system of classifying the different types of cookies which we use on the Website, or which may be used by third parties through our websites.

What is a cookie?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your personal computer, mobile or other device when you visit a website.

Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user's device.

Persistent cookies - these cookies remain on a user's device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the website that created that particular cookie.
