Cookies Policy

1. Privacy and Cookies

As of May 2011 new EU legislation has been implemented into UK legislation concerning the use of 'cookies' on a website, this legislation is being often referred to as 'cookies' legislation and provides that consent must be obtained from users of a website to have cookies 'placed' on their computers when they visit the site. A 'cookie' is a small file of letters and numbers that allow a website to recognise a visitor's pc, mobile or other device. When a visitor accesses website features that use cookies, cookies are downloaded on to their device. The information accessed by the cookie is used to improve the user experience on the website by, for example:

ensuring the user does not have to give the same information several times during one task
recognising that the user has given a user name and password so that this is not necessary for every web page requested
measuring how many people are using services, and which pages they are visiting so that the site can be made easier to use and has enough capacity

Cookies aren't used to identify you personally. They're just here to make the site work better for you. The cookies we use are listed below, with descriptions and expiry dates. You can manage cookies and delete them if you wish – but doing so may adversely affect the experience you have on the site.

This cookie is used to establish and continue a user session with your site. When a user views a page on your site, the Google Analytics code attempts to update this cookie. If it does not find the cookie, a new one is written and a new session is established. Each time a user visits a different page on your site, this cookie is updated to expire in 30 minutes, thus continuing a single session for as long as user activity continues within 30-minute intervals. This cookie expires when a user pauses on a page on your site for longer than 30 minutes. You can modify the default length of a user session with the _setSessionCookieTimeout() method.
