Privacy Statement: How we use Cookies

Cookies are very small text files that are stored on your computer when you visit some (if not most) websites. These help to identify your computer so that the site owner can tailor and improve your user experience when interacting with the site. Sometimes, these small text files are vital for the functioning of the web page and without cookies the user would not be able to move seamlessly from page to page on the site.

Our website is no exception to this and we use cookies to improve your experience when you are visiting our website. It is possible to disable any cookies already stored on your computer but this may stop our website from functioning properly for you.

The Approach

Our policy statement is visible from almost every page on the site. We therefore assume that any visitors and users to our site are aware of our cookie policy (this document) and accept our policies. Continued use of the site is taken to constitute agreement with our policies as detailed in this document. If you do not agree with our policies, please do not continue to use this website.

The Cookies we typically set

Cookies are used for the management of the signup process and general administration of your account. These usually are deleted when you log out.

Cookies also are used for verification of users who are logged in. These identify your preferences (if you have saved any preferences) and remember that you are logged in so that you will not need to log in again every single time you visit a new page. These typically are removed or cleared when you log out of the site.

Third Party Cookies

In some special cases we also use cookies provided by trusted third parties. In particular, the site uses Google Analytics. This software helps us to understand how visitors use the site and ways that we can improve your experience.

These may track things such as how long a visitor spends on the site and the pages that the visitor opens on the site. This information helps us to improve the content on our pages and helps to identify pages that are not performing as well as they should. While this information is captured for every visitor to the site, it does not capture any personal information and the visitor can not be identified from the data.

For more information on Google Analytics cookies, see the official Google Analytics page.

We also use social media buttons and/or plugins on this site that allow you to connect with your social network in various ways. For these buttons and/or plugins to work the social media sites may set cookies through our site and this may be used to enhance your interaction with our site (in a similar way to that described in the text above). For more information on the cookies set by Social Media Sites, please refer to their respective privacy policies.

Sharing of Information

We do not share any personal information about any users.
