Our Policy forCookies
2. What are Cookies?
- Cookies are files which often include unique identifiers that are sent by web servers to web browsers, and which may then be sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
- Cookies can be used by web servers to identity and track users as they navigate different pages on a website, and to identify users returning to a website.
- Cookies may be either “persistent” or “session” cookies.
- A persistent cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which will be stored by the browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date).
- A session cookie will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed
- The cookies named __utma through __utmz come from websites that use Google Analytics, which primarily use it to track visits.
Cookies do not contain any information that personally identifies you, but personal information that we store about you may be linked. We may use the information we obtain from your use of our cookies for the following purposes:
- to track you as you navigate our website
- to analyse the use of our website
|__utmz||Stores where a visitor came from (search engine, search keyword, link)|
|__utma||Used to distinguish users and sessions|
|__utmb and __utmc||Used to check approximately how long you stay on a site – when a visit starts and approximately ends.|
4. Third Party Cookies

5. Blocking Cookies
Most web browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies. For example:
- In Microsoft Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector
- In Mozilla Firefox you can block all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Options”, and un-checking “Accept cookies from sites” in the “Privacy” box.
- In Apple Safari you can block cookies by selecting Private browsing
Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites.
