Cookies and Other Tracking Devices

This website, along with most other major websites, uses cookies. Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to the cookie file on your computer's hard disk. Cookies enable users to navigate around the website and (where appropriate) enable us to tailor the content to fit the needs of visitors who have accessed the site.

We use two types of cookies on this website:

Persistent or stored cookies, which remain permanently on the cookie file of your computer.

Cookies cannot look into your computer and obtain information about you or your family or read any material kept on your hard drive and, unless you have logged onto an authenticated page, cookies cannot be used to identify who you are.

Cookies will not be used to contact you for marketing purposes other than by means of advertisements offered within this website.

Cookies may be used to record details of pages relating to particular products and services that you have visited on this website. This is to provide us with generic usage statistics to allow us to improve this website and to provide you with information that may interest you.

In order to develop this website in line with customer needs we are working with WebTrends to track usage on this website. WebTrends provides us with statistics to show which pages on this website are visited most frequently and how long visitors spend on this website.

WebTrends uses cookies to track the number of unique users of this website. It basically tells us whether the website has a small number of regular visitors or a large number of infrequent visitors. None of the information can be traced to an individual - we do not know who you are as a unique user, merely that there are a certain number of people using this website. The cookie only relates to what goes on in this website and the information cannot be used for marketing on an individual basis.
