Privacy and Cookies

Privacy and cookies policy and information

Privacy Policy

We're a firm believer in everyone's right to privacy, so our website doesn't gather or store any personal information about you when you visit.

Sometimes you might choose to give us or one of our partners personal information by completing forms online. When you trust us with your information you can be sure that we and, where applicable, our partners will do all we can to keep your information safe. We will only ever disclose someone's information if there is a very good legal reason to do so, in keeping with our registration under the Data Protection Act 1998.

We will never, ever sell your information to third parties like marketing companies.

All About Cookies - What are they and why do we use them?

Cookies are tiny text files that are placed on your computer by websites. Nearly all websites use them. They are not used to personally identify you, but can track your activity. So, for example, a website owner knows they've had a visitor, how long that visitor has spent on their website and on what pages. Some websites use this to target you with advertising which might be of interest to you. We don't.

We only use cookies to provide services which will help you get the most out of our website. Examples include interactive maps, online forms and the ability to rate our pages.

Our cookies cannot be used to identify you personally and are not used for marketing. They simply help you use the website and help us see how many people are visiting and what they are most interested in. This helps us provide the right kind of content for our customers.

Cookies can also make life easier by remembering your computer or any other device you've used to visit the site. This means you don't have to give the same information several times during a visit or while completing a task.

You can choose to delete and block cookies from this site, but this will stop some functions from working properly. To find out more about how to manage cookies, please visit www.aboutcookies.org.

The table below shows which cookies are used on our website. Please note that we cannot control cookies used by other parties, for example Google or YouTube, so it's a good idea to read their Privacy Policies as well. We've listed their cookies below and given you links to their policies.

When you accept cookies from us, any of the following cookies may be used. If you do not accept cookies using our opt-out option - which pops up on our webpages until you answer it - only those cookies which affect the site's basic functions will be used.

Types of cookie: A persistent cookie stays on your computer between visits. This is why websites remember your preferences and what you've looked at before. For example, they are used when a shopping site recommends products for you based on what you've looked at. A session cookie is a temporary cookie given each time you visit, simply to remember what you've done during that visit. Without them, for example, you could add an item to a shopping basket on one page of a shopping site but then it would be forgotten when you visit the checkout!

Party: 1st Party cookies are placed on your computer as a direct result of what you're doing on our website, such as browsing information or using maps. 3rd Party cookies are placed by other websites when you click on a link to visit them or watch an embedded video.
