Cookie Use Policy
1. What are cookies
A cookie is a small piece of data or message that is sent from a website’s server to your web browser and is then stored on your hard drive. They’re generally used to improve your user experience by – for example – remembering where you have been on a website or keeping you logged in on a website as you navigate from one page to another. Cookies can't read data off your hard drive or other cookie files, and do not damage your system.
2.1 First party cookies
2.2 Third party cookies
We may use social media (e.g. Twitter, Facebook, YouTube) and their buttons to connect with/to their websites, so read their cookie use policy to check what information they're collecting on you too.
2.3 Email marketing
Our email marketing (which includes some but not all member communications) may be traceable at an individual level, allowing us to determine, for example, opens and link clicks. This information is generally used to help assess the effectiveness of communications so that – for example – we can send you more of what you like. Further information about this can be seen on the MailChimp web site.
3. How to change your cookies
3.1 First party
Your web browser settings allow you to refuse any cookie or to alert you to when a cookie is being sent. They also allow you to control cookies stored on your hard drive. However, this may impact on both usability and also your browsing experience.
3.2 Third party
The above applies but as mentioned before, only third party cookies we use are essential to complete certain tasks, therefore if you disable them, the thing you’re trying to do won’t work.
3.3 Email marketing
Again these are pretty essential so if you wish to disable tracking then please unsubscribe from our mailing list. This can be done by either unsubscribing at the bottom of your most recent email sent from us, or contacting us on
