A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a web server to a web browser, which enables the server to collect information from the browser. Cookies make the interaction between users and web sites faster and easier. Without cookies, it would be very difficult for a web site to allow a visitor to fill up a shopping cart or to remember the user’s preferences or registration details for a future visit.

We use “cookies” to identify you when you visit our web site and to keep track of your browsing patterns and build up a demographic profile. Our use of cookies also allows registered users to be presented with a personalised version of the site and have access to information about their account.

This website does not store any information that would, on its own, allow us to identify individual users of this service without their permission. Any cookies that may be used by this website are used either solely on a per session basis or to maintain user preferences. Cookies are not shared with any third parties.

Use of Cookies

Unless you have indicated your objection when disclosing your information to us, our system will issue cookies to your computer when you log on to the website. Cookies are small amounts of information regarding your browsing habits which we store on your computer. 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 website for you.

Accepting and Declining Cookies

You may have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer you may be able to modify your browser settings to decline all cookies, or to notify you each time a cookie is tendered and permit you to accept or decline cookies on an individual basis. If you choose to decline cookies, however, that may hinder the performance of our website. For specific details about how to configure your browser you should refer to its supplier or manufacturer.

We may embed videos from our official YouTube channel using YouTube’s privacy-enhanced mode.
