1. COOKIES

Cookies are small amounts of information which we store on your computer. Unless you have told us you object, our system will issue cookies to your computer when you use the Website (whether you are a registered or non-registered user). Cookies make it easier for you to log on to and use the Website during future visits. They also allow us to monitor website traffic and to personalise the content of the site for you. You may refuse to accept cookies by activating the setting on your browser which allows you to refuse the setting of cookies. However, if you do that, you may not be able to use some features on the Website. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you log on to our site. Please note that our advertisers may also use cookies, over which we have no control.

Please remember, cookies do not contain confidential information such as your home address, telephone number or credit card details. We do not exchange cookies with any third party websites or external data suppliers.

Your browser also generates other information, including which language the site is displayed in, and your IP address. An IP address is a set of numbers which is assigned to your computer during a browsing session whenever you log on to the Internet via your internet service provider or your network (if you access the Internet from, for example, a computer at work). Your IP address is automatically logged by our servers and used to collect traffic data about visitors to our websites. We do not use your IP address to identify you personally.

We only keep cookies for the duration of your visit to our website, except where you save your login name as referred to above.
