In line with the UK ICC compliance with EU Cookie regulations we only utilise strictly necessary and performance cookies.
The cookies we store contain no information which can personally identify a visitor nor is the information distributed, shared or sold.
The cookies we retain are solely for our own internal records to improve how the website operates. This is achieved by logging information on visitor behavior by issuing randomly generated session numbers and hits associated with these session numbers which enable us to recognise subsequent requests.
After a period of inactivity, your session will time-out and subsequent visits to the website will be identified with a new session number, visitor preferences are therefore not maintained across visits.
