How We Use Cookies

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed in your browser (e.g. Chrome or Safari) on your computer. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

An example of this would be the comment form on blog posts. If you have left a comment before, the browser will ‘remember’ this through a cookie, so that next time you don’t have to fill in your name & email again.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about webpage traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to your needs. For example a cookie is used to remember whether you have seen the newsletter signup popup and as long as the cookie remains it will not show the same popup for 30 days.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. You can also delete cookies from your browser at any time. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.
