Our use of cookies

We use analytics cookies to collect information on website activity (such as the number of users who visit our website, the date and time of visits, the number of pages viewed, navigation patterns, what country and what systems users have used to access the site and, when entering our website from another website, the address of that web site). This information on its own does not identify an individual but it does provide us with statistics that can be used to analyse and improve our website.

We also use a cookie to recognise when you return to our website.  This ensures that we will only show you our cookie notice the first time that you visit our website.
