Cookie policy

Most websites you visit will use cookies to help customise your experience. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit which collect standard internet log information and visitor behaviour information.

The law regarding how cookies are used and allowed came into force in May 2012 after a yearlong EU directive.

The Cookie Law is a new piece of privacy legislation that requires websites to obtain consent from visitors to store or retrieve any information on a computer or any other web connected device, like a smartphone or tablet.

It has been designed to protect online privacy, by making consumers aware of how information about them is collected by websites, and enable them to choose whether or not they want to allow it to take place.

Our website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our site. In no other context do we use cookies to collect information that identifies you personally.

What is a cookie anyway?

Cookies are little files that almost all websites use as a kind of memory.  They are stored in your browser and enable a site to 'remember' little bits of information between pages or visits.

We sometimes embed video content from websites such as YouTube. Pages with this embedded content may present cookies from these websites. Similarly, when you use one of the share buttons on our website, a cookie may be set by the service you have chosen to share content through. You should check the relevant third party website for more information about these cookies.

Do I have to consent to cookies?

No, you can block cookies by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. However, if you use your browser settings to restrict the use of cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of our site. You can set your browser not to accept cookies and the Interactive Advertising Bureau website tells you how to remove cookies from your browser. However in a few cases some of our website features may not function as a result.

Please bear in mind that if you do this, certain personalised features of this website cannot be provided to you.
