Changes to online privacy laws across the EU, since May 2011, mean that visitors to many websites will start to be asked for their consent for the use of ‘cookies’ and other similar web technologies.
‘Cookies’ are a type of file stored on your internet device (PC, Phone or Tablet) and are used by most websites in various ways to personalise your online experience. Cookies can also be used to track your activity and behaviour online. This provides website owners with important insights into the quality of their services, allowing them to improve and better meet the needs of all their visitors.
These cookies allow us to count page visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site, using a service provided by Google Analytics.
