Cookie Policy


New legal requirements about privacy and website users came into force in the UK in May 2011 following implementation in the UK of EU legislation.

This is often referred to as ‘cookies’ legislation and many websites are now asking users to consent to having cookies ‘dropped’ on their computers when they visit. A 'cookie' is a small file of letters and numbers that allow a website to recognise a visitor's pc, mobile or other device.

When a visitor accesses website features that use cookies, cookies are downloaded on to their device. The information accessed by the cookie is used to improve your experience on the website by, for example:

  • ensuring you does not have to give the same information several times during one task
  • recognising that you have given a user name and password so that this is not necessary for every web page requested
  • measuring how many people are using services, and which pages they are visiting so that the site can be made easier to use and has enough capacity

Cookies aren’t used to identify individual visitors, but rather to make the site work better for you. You can manage cookies and delete them if you wish – but doing so may adversely affect the experience you have on the site.
