Users of our website can visit the site without revealing their identity or providing information about themselves.

We collect information directly from users when they voluntarily submit their personal information to us. On certain parts of our website, we may (now or in the future) provide the opportunity for users to register for an event or order goods, join a mailing list, request information or book something.

When this sort of information is collected we will provide the reason for collection and how the information will be used. We reserve the right to add to this list of opportunities available to our users to interact with us. It is completely up to users to provide us with their personal information.

Use of collected information

Generally, visitors are informed of the use of their personal information at the time of collection. Normally, personal information provided or collected is used to respond to inquiries or to process requests.

Cookies Policy

What are cookies

Cookies are small text files which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or application. Your web browser (such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome) then sends these cookies back to the website or application on each subsequent visit so that they can recognise you and remember things like personalised details or user preferences.

Cookies are very useful and do lots of different jobs which help to make your experience on websites as smooth as possible. For example, they let you move between web pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving your experience (see below for more examples). They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.

They are referred to as session or persistent cookies, depending on how long they are used:

  • Session cookies only last for your online session and disappear from your computer or device when you close your browser.
  • Persistent cookies stay on your computer or device after the browser has been closed and last for the period of time specified in the cookie. These persistent cookies are activated each time you visit the site where the cookie was generated.

Managing cookies in your browser

Most modern browsers will allow you to:

  • See what cookies you’ve got and delete them on an individual basis.
  • Block third party cookies.
  • Block cookies from particular sites.
  • Block all cookies from being set.
  • Delete all cookies when you close your browser.

You should be aware that any preferences will be lost if you delete cookies. This includes where you have opted out from cookies, as this requires an opt-out cookie to be set. Also, if you block cookies completely many websites will not work properly and some functionality on these websites will not work at all.

Please check the ‘Help’ menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences. Alternatively, www.allaboutcookies.org contains comprehensive information on how to do this on a wide variety of browsers.
