What is a cookie?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device.

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improve the user experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests. The cookies used on this website have been categorised based on the categories found in the ICC UK Cookie guide.
Category 1: strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies services you have asked for, like shopping baskets or e-billing, cannot be provided.
Category 2: performance cookies
These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works.
By using our website, you agree that we can place these type of cookies on your device.
Category 3: functionality cookies
These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
By using our website, you agree that we can place these type of cookies on your device.

Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement.

The right to be informed: That’s what this page is for!
The right of access: Individuals will have the right to ask—and receive an answer—if an organization is processing their data. This information must be provided largely for free within one month of request.
The right to rectification: If your data is incorrect or incomplete, you have the right to have it corrected.
The right to be forgotten: You may request the removal of your data, for example from my mailing list if you have signed up to it.
The right to restrict processing: Under certain circumstances, you can block the processing of your personal data, although on this site, it would mean just not providing any to me and opting out of Google Analytics (see links below).
The right to data portability: You can use your own data anywhere you like.
The right to object: You can object to the use of their personal data for most purposes.
You may choose to restrict the collection or use of your personal information in the following ways:

- Opting out of Google Analytics
We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties (unless we have your permission, but currently have no plans in this area) or are required by law to do so. We may use your personal information to send you promotional information about third parties which we think you may find interesting, but again, only if you tell us that you wish this to happen.
You may request details of personal information which we hold about you under the Data Protection Act 1998 and GDPR. This is normally free and I aim to respond within one month.
If you would like a copy of the information held on you please write to the address in the footer.
