Cookie Policy

Our website uses cookies, as almost all websites do, to help provide you with the best experience we can. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer or mobile phone when you browse websites.

Our cookies help us:

  • make our website work as you’d expect
  • remember your settings during and between visits
  • improve the speed/security of the site
  • continuously improve our website for you
  • make our marketing more efficient (ultimately helping us to offer the service we do at the price we do).

We do not use cookies to:

  • collect any personally identifiable information (without your express permission)
  • collect any sensitive information (without your express permission)
  • pass data to advertising networks
  • pass personally identifiable data to third parties
  • pay sales commissions.

Disabling these cookies is likely to break the functions offered by these third parties.

Visitor Statistics Cookies
We use cookies 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 and so on. This helps us to improve our website continuously. These so-called “analytics” programs also tell us how people reached this site (e.g. from a search engine) and whether they have been here before helping us to put more money into developing our services for you instead of marketing spend.

Turning Cookies Off
You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies (learn how here). Doing so, however, will likely limit the functionality of our website and a large proportion of the world’s websites as cookies are a standard part of most modern websites.

It may be that your concerns around cookies relate to so-called “spyware”. Rather than switching off cookies in your browser, you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive.

Granting us permission to use cookies
If the settings on your browser, that is the software you are using to view this website, are adjusted to accept cookies we take this, and your continued use of our website, to mean that you are okay with this. Should you wish to remove or not use cookies from our site, you can do this on the website, however, doing so will probably mean that our site will not work as you would expect.
