A cookie is a small file that is placed on your computer's hard drive when a website is visited. The permission to load a cookie is controlled by the settings of your browser. When the file is added it stores a counter and a simple tag, which is used to track the pages that are visited and how many times you have returned. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website and then tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system. It should be noted that there is no private information about you stored in a cookie, such as name or contact details. Further, a cookie in no way gives us access to your computer. You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site we do not have any control over that other website.
