Privacy & Cookie Policies

Privacy Policy

We will not disclose any information you provide about yourself to any third parties unless we have to do so in the ordinary course of our commercial relationship with you (including, without limitation, for marketing purposes) or to administer this Website. We are aware of and we will comply with our obligations under current data protection legislation in the UK. If you have any questions about our use of your personal details then please contact us at 

Cookie Policy

Use of Cookies

We want to make the use of our website easy, useful and reliable. To do this we sometimes place small amounts of information on your device. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally but they do make your experience as a visitor better.

Cookies on our Website

Our site automatically deploys two cookies on visitors' computers on arrival at our website, provided cookies are not blocked by the visitors' browsers.

One of these cookies (PHPSESSID) allows us to maintain the user browsing experience and identify whether the user is logged into restricted areas. This is automatically deleted at the end of the browsing session.

Third party cookies

In addition the site deploys a number of third party generated cookies because of the integration of various third party applications on the site.

The cookies include:

From Google
PREF, __utma, __utmb, __utmc, __utmv, __utmz, NID, docsperf, rememberme, __qca, HSI

This list is not exhaustive and may be changed by Google at any time. We do not have control over the cookies deployed by Google; we do not know when those cookies may change, or their purpose, or when further cookies may be added. We cannot therefore tell you what they do or what they are for.

Why do we allow such third party cookies? Google provide us with free information about the numbers of visitors and how they reached us; they also recognise location when used with Google maps and allow the pages to be liked using Google+. We believe that having this information allows us better to develop and extend the service our website offers visitors. If we are to take advantage of the services Google provides we have to accept some cookies from them.  Google's privacy policy which governs their use of cookies can be found here.
