  • Make our website work as you would expect it to
  • Improve the speed/security of the site
  • Continuously improve our website for you
  • Make our marketing more efficient (ultimately helping us to provide a better service)

  • Collect any personally identifiable information (without your express permission)

  • Pass data to advertising networks

Granting us permission to use cookies

If the settings on the software that you are using to view this website (your browser) are adjusted to accept cookies, then we take that and your continued use of our website to mean that you are fine with this.

Website Function Cookies

Our own cookies

We use cookies to make our website work, including by remembering your search settings. There is no way to prevent these cookies being set other than to not use our site.

Third party functions

Our site, like most websites, includes functionality provided by third parties. A common example is an embedded YouTube video. Our site includes the following which use cookies:

  • Google Maps and Streetview

Disabling these cookies is likely to break the functions offered by these third parties.

Anonymous Visitor Statistics Cookies

We use cookies to compile visitor statistics such as how many people have visited our website, what type of technology they are using (e.g. Mac or Windows - this helps to identify when our site is not working as it should for particular technologies), how long they spend on the site, what page they look at, etc. This helps us to continue improving our website. These so called "analytics" programs also tell us, on an anonymous basis, how people reached this site (e.g. from a search engine) and whether they have been here before. That enables us to put more money into developing our services for you, instead of spending it on marketing.

We use Google Analytics to collect and report on the visitor statistics for our site.  

Turning Cookies Off

You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies (learn how here).  However, doing so however will probably limit the functionality of our site (and a large proportion of the world's websites), because cookies are a standard part of most modern websites.

It may be that your concerns about cookies relate to "spyware".  Rather than switching off cookies in your browser, you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive.  Learn more about managing cookies with antispyware software.
