We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors; this policy sets out how we will treat your personal information.
Our website only uses session cookies.
(1) What information do we collect?
We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal information:
(a) Information about your computer and about your visits to and use of this website (including your IP address, geographical location, browser type and version, operating system, referral source, length of visit, page views and website navigation).

A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.
We only use “session‘ cookies on this website. Session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser. We will use the session cookies to keep track of you whilst you navigate the website and to prevent fraud and increase website security.
Most browsers allow you to reject all cookies, whilst some browsers allow you to reject just third party cookies. For example, in Internet Explorer (version 9) you can refuse all cookies by clicking "Tools", "Internet options", "Privacy", and selecting "Block All Cookies" using the sliding selector. Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites.
