  • Ensuring that you see and view the information on our website in the best way possible

HOW WE USE COOKIES:

USE OF COOKIES:

This table explains the way in which we use cookies on this website.

FACEBOOK, TWITTER AND OTHER SOCIAL NETWORKS

These services provide social buttons and similar features which we use on our website – such as the “Like” and “Tweet” buttons. To do so we embed code that they provide and we do not control ourselves. To function their buttons generally know if you’re logged in; for example, Facebook uses this to say “x of your friends like this”. We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it. Social networks, therefore, could know that you’re viewing this website if you use their services (that isn’t to say they do, but their policies may change). As our website is remarkably inoffensive we imagine this is not a concern for most users.
