New legal requirements about privacy and website users came into force in the UK in May 2011 following implementation in the UK of EU legislation.
This is often referred to as ‘cookies’ legislation and many websites are now asking users to consent to having cookies ‘dropped’ on their computers when they visit.
A 'cookie' is a small file of letters and numbers that allow a website to recognise a visitor's pc, mobile or other device.
Cookies aren’t used to identify individual visitors, but rather to make the site work better for you. The cookies used on this site are listed below, with descriptions and expiry dates. You can manage cookies and delete them if you wish – but doing so may adversely affect the experience you have on the site.
