If the settings on your software that you are using to view this website (your browser) are adjusted to accept cookies we take this, and/or your continued use of our website, to mean that you are fine with this.

Types of Cookies we use

Social Website Cookies:

So you can easily “Like” or share our content on the likes of Facebook and Twitter, we have included sharing buttons on our site. These cookies are set by a plugin called ShareThis.  ShareThis provides us with lots of sharing buttons all in one neat package. The privacy implications of this will vary from social network to social network and will be dependent on the privacy settings you have chosen on these networks.

Anonymous Visitor Statistics Cookies:

We also use cookies such as the ones from Google Analytics to compile visitor statistics such as how many people have visited our website, what type of technology they are using (e.g. Mac or Windows, which helps to identify when our site isn't working as it should for particular technologies), how long they spend on the site, what page they look at etc. This helps us to continuously improve our website. These so-called “analytics” programs also tell us if, on an anonymous basis, how people reached this site.
