Cookie Policy

This site uses analytics and performance-related cookies. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your device to help sites remember your preferences and provide a better user experience.

We use them to provide anonymised data for Google Analytics, data which is kept for 14 months only. Google Analytics enables us to calculate the aggregate number of people using the website and which parts of the site are most popular; it reports trends without identifying individual visitors.
