A 'cookie' is a small text file that is placed on a user's computer hard drive by a website. There are several types of cookie and the most common are often referred to as 'session' cookies. These are used to keep track of information needed by a user as they travel from page to page within a website. These cookies have a short lifetime and expire within a few minutes of the user leaving the site.
Other types of cookies can be used to track internet activity after the user has left a website. These are either sponsored by organisations external to the website being visited (known as 'third party' cookies) or can originate from the website organisation itself ('first party' cookies). These usually have a long lifetime with several months being quite common. They are 'harvested' and 'refreshed' whenever the user visits a page where the same or a similar cookie is being used.
This website uses benign, short lived 'session' cookies and 'first party' cookies to tell whether a website user has logged-in, where to find details that can be used to pre-fill parts of on-line forms and to personalise the user's visit to the website. They are also used to track anonymously which areas of the site are popular and which are not used; this allows us to target carefully our website resources.
7. Links to third party websites
We recognise the need to ensure that personal information gathered via this website remains secure. We use industry standard Secure Server Software (SSL) for your transactions with us to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the personal information under our control. It encrypts all of your personal information, including credit card number, name, and address, so that it cannot be read as the information travels over the Internet. However, you acknowledge that although we exercise adequate care and security there remains a risk that information transmitted over the Internet and stored by computer may be intercepted or accessed by an unauthorised third party.
9. Transmission of personal information outside EEA
The information you provide to us may be given by us to third parties such as suppliers who process orders or payments to countries outside the European Economic Area. For example, we use Google Analytics and, in supplying this service, Google will transmit your information to, and store it on, servers in the United States. Countries outside the European Economic Area may not always have strong data protection laws. However, we will always take steps to ensure that your information is used by third parties in accordance with this Policy and that it is kept secure. If you do not consent to this transfer, then please do not use this website as we will be unable to provide you with our services.
9. Notification of changes
We may update this Policy at any time without notice. Any changes to this Policy will be notified by an announcement on this website. Your continued use of this website, following the posting of changes to this Policy, will mean you accept these changes.
