The EU Cookie Law
In May 2012 an EU Cookie Law was created. It is designed to protect online privacy by making you aware of how we use information gathered by cookies.
What are Cookies?
Cookies are small data files transferred to your PC when you visit our site for the first time. When you make a return visit we recognise you.
We use the cookies to track which pages you visit and how you use the website. They aren’t sinister, nor do they collect personally identifiable information. There are various cookies which all do different jobs, some functional and if removed would affect the way our site can be viewed and some for visitor analysis purposes.
How we are complying with the new law
The new EU Cookie Law means that we must be transparent about the cookies we are using and also ask permission of you to use the cookies.
If you wish to disable cookies you can visit AboutCookies.org for details of how to do this.

2. Google Analytics
As we use Google Analytics to measure visitors to our site, they set up a number of cookies for this purpose too. Google Analytics is very important to us as it tells us what pages are performing well and how well our marketing is working. Like many services, Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to track visitor interactions. These cookies are used to store information, such as what time the current visit occurred, whether the visitor has been to the site before, and what site referred the visitor to the web page.
