Statistical Information about Traffic to our Website

We may, in future, use statistics software to track user traffic patterns throughout our site. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. We do break down overall usage statistics according to where users linked to us from, and about their browser type, by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user’s browser).

Cookies

Cookies are small files which ask permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive so that we can analyse web traffic to our site. Through this we can see which of our website’s pages are being viewed and are of interest. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but you can modify your setting to decline them if you prefer.

Links to other websites

Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you use these links please be aware that you have left our website and we do not have any control over other websites. We cannot therefore be held responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide when visiting such sites and these sites are not governed by our privacy policy. We advise therefore that you exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.
