Our website uses six cookies, with an extra one that is only set if you are a member and you login to the Member pages.
A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we put on your computer, if you agree by clicking ‘I am happy with this’ in the pop-up box that will appear when you first load the site. These cookies allow us to distinguish you from other users of the website which helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our site.
The cookies we use are ‘analytical’ cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the site when they’re using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example by making sure users are finding what they need easily.
