Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your personal computer, mobile or other device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device.

Here is a list of all the types of cookies used by this website. By using this website, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device.


Strictly necessary cookies
These types of cookies are only used for my website administrators and editors; the cookies enable them to access secure areas of the website to perform website maintenance and content updates. These cookies are not used for normal website visitors like you. In fact, visitors can successfully navigate around the website even if they block all cookies using their browser preferences.

Performance cookies
These cookies collect anonymous information on the pages visited.  On our website, these types of cookies are placed and used by Google Analytics. The cookies collect information about how visitors use the website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how the website works.

Functionality cookies
These cookies remember choices you make to improve your experience. Currently, the only cookie used of this type is for the cookie notice! It “remembers” when you have seen or clicked the cookie notice for a while so that once the cookie notice has disappeared, it doesn’t pop up again on every page or every visit.

These cookies are anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

Third party cookies
These cookies allow third parties (i.e. Google Analytics) to track the success of their application or customise the application for you. Because of how cookies work we cannot access these cookies, nor can the third parties access the data in cookies we’ve used on our site. We don’t control the setting of third party cookies, so please check those websites for more information about their cookies and how to manage them.
