5 European Privacy Legislation

On 26 May 2011, new legislation regarding the use of cookies on websites in the EU came into force. This site uses cookies, some of which are operationally essential and have, therefore, already been set. Businesses in the UK have been given a period of one year to comply with the new law. We are using this period to investigate and update the website accordingly, to ensure that we are compliant with the law and to continue to provide the level of service our visitors have come to expect.

Please be reassured that any information stored in cookies is not shared with any third party, except for Google Analytics which is anonymous, aggregated data. The cookies used on this site are purely for statistical purposes and for the website to function. For more information please refer to sections 3 and 4 of this Privacy Policy.

You may delete and block all cookies from this site if you wish by using the settings in your web browser, but be aware that doing so will currently stop the site from working. More information about the new legislation can be read on the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) website.
