What are cookies?

Cookies are small files that get put on your computer by websites as you surf them. These cookies can store lots of information which can have privacy implications.

Anonymous tracking software

We use Google Analytics (just like virtually everybody else). This is a service provided by Google. They gather anonymous data of how people are using this site and then provide us with visitor statistics, details of page views etc etc. If you are anti-Google or don’t want us to see how you use this website you can opt-out of being tracked by Google Analytics at (we’d prefer you didn’t though as this data is seriously helpful to us in improving the website).

Don’t want any cookies ever?

While we’d love to offer a cookie-free version of this site it doesn’t really make sense to try and build a site that doesn’t use cookies whilst giving you the functionality and user experience that you would expect. You can remove any cookies we have already put on your machine within your browser settings – pressing Ctrl+Shift+Delete may work in many cases. If cookies scare you then the best thing is to disable cookies permanently in your browser. However, you may find that the Internet then doesn’t work very well for you. Cookies are good things as long as you know about them. To find out how to disable cookies in your browser go here for more information –
