New Cookie legislation became law on May 26th 2011, with organisations given 12 months to comply. This means that, as website operators, we are obliged to inform you of any ‘cookies’ we run on our website and what they mean to you.
A cookie is, essentially, a small file of letters and numbers downloaded on to your computer when you access certain websites. Cookies allow a website to ‘recognise’ a user’s computer. Cookies themselves do not require personal information to be useful and, in most cases, do not personally identify internet users. Cookies are used in a variety of ways. This can be to remember what items you have placed in your shopping basket, through to helping with behavioural advertising to identify users who share a particular interest so that they can be served more relevant adverts.
You may refuse to accept cookies by activating the setting on your browser or your mobile device which allows you to refuse the setting of cookies. However, if you select this setting some pages on our website may not function properly.
