Analytics cookies

Our website uses cookies. A cookie is a small file containing letters and numbers that we save onto your computer when you access this website. These cookies allow us to distinguish you from other users of this site.

The cookies we use are “analytical” cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors, as well as seeing how visitors move around the site when they’re using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example by making sure users are finding what they need easily and seeing what content is the most popular. We can also record how long people stay on the website, the approximate geographical location of the visitor and other information that does not personally identify the individual user.

Our analytics service provider, called StatCounter, generates this statistical information and produces reports about the use of our website for us. You can read about StatCounter’s Privacy Policy at http://statcounter.com/about/legal/#privacy

StatCounter will set a third-party cookie when you visit and browse this website. These analytical cookies will remain on your device for up to five years or until you choose to delete them. If you allow cookies to be stored on your computer, it means we can understand more about our audience.
