How does this website use cookies?

This website uses non-essential cookies (i.e. cookies which are not strictly necessary in order for us to provide services to you) via Google Analytics and ShareThis.

Google Analytics is a tool that allows the behaviour of users on a website to be analysed so that website owners can provide the best possible user experience. It generates cookies which enable website traffic to be tracked and summarised.  For example, those cookies are able to identify whether you have visited our website before and which pages you visit. They cannot be used to identify individuals and are used for statistical purposes only. The data itself is only visible to us, the provider of this website from time to time (currently Tincan Limited) and the relevant team at Google.

ShareThis enables this website to interact with a wide range of third party social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter. You should be aware that those sites may set cookies on your web browser while you use this website. For more details please consult the privacy policies of the third party social media sites in question.

You can restrict or block the cookies used by this website through your web browser settings but this will impact your user experience. The Help function within your web browser should tell you how to do so.

Alternatively, you can visit www.aboutcookies.org which provides directions on how to block cookies on all major web browsers. The site will explain how you can delete cookies that have already been stored on your computer as well as general information about cookies.
