Our approach to cookies

Like most websites we use cookies to help us give you a better service. They do lots of things including help you navigate between pages and telling us what device you’re using so we can present our content in the best way possible.

We also use Google Analytics to help us understand how our users interact with the website. It includes information about how users arrive at our site, where they are from and the pages they visit. This information is completely anonymous.

If you continue to use our site you are agreeing to our cookie policy. You can, however, adjust your browser so that it doesn’t accept cookies. This will probably negatively impact on your experience of our website but the choice is entirely down to you. You can also opt out of Google Analytics.

Third party websites

If we link through to third party websites we have no control over their cookie policy. We therefore suggest that you check their cookie policy for further information.
