How we use cookies

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. However, please note, that this may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

We use traffic log cookies in conjunction with Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc, USA to gather statistical data which helps us to understand how people use this site. This includes information such as the type of technology used to interact with our site, pages visited, links clicked, and similar data, but it does not give us individually identifiable information about your interaction with the site.

We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

By using this website, you consent not only to our privacy policy but also to the processing of information about you by Google. Google stores the information collected by the cookie on servers in the United States. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other information held by Google.

Links to other websites

Our website contains links to a wide variety of other websites which contain information relevant to our cause. However, as these websites are operated by third parties, we have no control over what happens on them, and we can therefore take no responsibility for the protection of your privacy once you leave this website. Any information which you may provide whilst visiting such sites is not governed by this privacy statement, and we recommend you to exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.

Controlling your personal information

You may request details of personal information which we hold about you under the UK Data Protection Act 1998 or the EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC.

If you believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, then please contact us immediately so we may update our records.

If you have previously agreed to us using your personal information, you may also change your mind at any time, either by using the “unsubscribe” functions for mailing lists, or by notifying us in writing using the contact form provided.

After you have visited the website, you may also manually delete cookies from your computer by using the appropriate function in your browser.


This privacy policy has been drafted in a clear manner to be easily understood. If you disagree with any of its content, or are unsure of the meaning, then you should either not use the site, and/or contact us that we may address any concerns you may have and where feasible rectify them.
