Cookies Policy & Privacy

This site, like many others, sometimes uses small files called cookies. Find out more about cookies and how you can control them:

What are cookies?

‘Cookies’ are small text files that are stored by the web browser (for example Safari or Chrome) on your computer or mobile device. They allow websites to store things like user preferences. You can think of cookies as providing a memory for the website, so that it can recognise you when you come back and respond appropriately. For more general information on cookies see the Wikipedia article on HTTP Cookies.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics installed on this site uses anonymous cookies to provide useful traffic data. These cookies can show whether or not you have visited the site before. If you are new visitor then a new anonymous cookie will be generated.

Unless you are signed-in to the site, there is no way to identify individuals. In practice only site admin will ever be logged in. Your visit is anonymous.

Other Third-party Cookies

On some website pages, other organisations may also set their own anonymous cookies. They do this to track the success of their application, or to customise the application for you. Because of how cookies work, this website cannot access those cookies, nor can these other organisations access the data in other cookies on this website. For example, when you share an article using a social-media sharing button (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram).

How do I turn cookies off?

It is usually possible to stop your browser accepting cookies, or to stop it accepting cookies from a particular website. All modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. You can usually find these settings in the ‘options’ or ‘preferences’ menu of your browser. To understand these settings, the following links may be helpful, or you can use the ‘Help’ option in your browser for more details.
