Anonymous Visitor Statistics Cookies

We use cookies to compile visitor statistics, such as how many people have visited our website, what type of technology they are using (e.g. Mac or Windows which helps to identify when our site isn’t working as it should for particular technologies), how long they spend on the site, what page they look at, etc. This helps us to continuously improve our website. These so-called “analytics” programmes also give us anonymised information about how people reach this site (e.g. from a search engine) and whether they have been here before. This information helps us waste less money on marketing, so we can invest more in developing our services for you.

It may be that your concerns around cookies relate to so-called “spyware”. Rather than switching off cookies in your browser you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive.
