Please Note:

Your browser does not support the currently preferred methods of web site design and development. In particular, Microsoft has withdrawn support for Internet Explorer. Consequently, we can no longer justify providing additional resources for browsers that will increasingly become inappropriate.

All information should still be available to you within a basic user experience.

However, although we supported IE right to the end, we recommend that you now look for an alternative browser such as Edge, Firefox, Chrome, etc. All of these are automatically updated to include support for new technologies.

Cookie Policy

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers downloaded on to a device when the user accesses certain websites. Cookies allow a website to recognise a user's device. Cookies DO NOT allow our web site to access any other part of your computer systems.

We comply with the provisions of UK / Scots Law. The law which applies to how cookies and similar technologies are used for storing information on a user's equipment such as their computer or mobile device can be found at The Information Commissioners Office web site Note: This is a link to a PDF document that may have limitations in accessibility

Because cookies are stored on your computer, web site owners need to get users’ permission to access their computer to retrieve the cookies. In addition, certain regulations protect the privacy of internet users - even where the information being collected about them is not directly personally identifiable. These are not rules designed to restrict the use of particular technologies as such, they are intended to prevent information being stored on people’s computers, and used to recognise them via the device they are using, without their knowledge and agreement.

User consent can be explicit or implied. You may have seen web sites that ask you to click an ‘accept cookies’ feature. This gains your implicit consent, and this is required where cookies are set by web sites other than the one you are visiting (e.g. Google Analytics). The Information Commissioner’s guidance made it clear that although an explicit opt-in mechanism might provide regulatory certainty it is not the only means of gaining consent.

“Implied consent” is an equally valid form of consent, and consent can be inferred by, for example, visiting a website, moving from one page to another or clicking on a particular button. The key point is that implied consent can only be used where a web site uses cookies for internal purposes that are restricted to what is essential to provide the service, and are not used to remember information in the long term.

Cookies may be used when anonymous users (those who do not log into our web) access our pages. Our web site makes only a minimal use of cookies. Those that we use are required to deliver the information you request as you move about the site, and to temporarily store data to save the need to process and download it on every page. Once you have finished using our web, this data is deleted.

We may also use this information to record the pages that users view. This helps us to plan and administer our web site. Data is limited to a 'session' identification code that all web servers and users' computers use to maintain their dialog. In compliance with our Privacy Policy, we have no way of knowing who you are or where you live or work, and all data is anonymised.

As a member or registered user, we may store additional information in cookies. Members, and users who register with us, agree to the use of these cookies. No personal data is stored in any cookies and they are used only to help our systems to 'remember' information such as your preferences. The data in cookies is not normally readable by anyone other than our web server. Even if it was hacked, the data would be meaningless outwith the context of our web sites.

If you have any concerns about the use of cookies on any of our web sites, please let us know and we will attempt to answer your questions honestly and completely.
