Privacy and cookie policy

To make this website easier to use and offer you options to save information we sometimes place small data files on your computer.

These are known as cookies and are used by many websites – for example when you are asked if you want a form to ‘remember you’ for your next visit, this is stored on your computer. They also measure how you use the website so we can make continual improvements to pages and locations of information. By modifying your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set or to reject all cookies.

Our cookies do not identify you personally, nor do we store or use them to transmit any personal data: view what cookies we use below.
