In common with many other websites we use Google Analytics. Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got here and what you click on. This information helps us in better understanding what sort of information we should put on our website. We do not collect or store your personal information (e.g. your name or address), just the IP (Internet Protocol) number of your computer, so this information cannot be used to identify who you are. We do not allow Google to use or share our analytics data.
The following cookies are set by Google Analytics:
Name Typical Content Expiry
_utma - randomly generated number - 2 years
_utmb - randomly generated number - 30 minutes
_utmc - randomly generated number - when you close your browser
_utmx - randomly generated number - 2 years
_utmxx - randomly generated number - 2 years
_utmz - randomly generated number and information on how the site was reached (e.g. direct or via a link, organic search or paid search) - 6 months
If you do not wish to accept cookies on to your computer you can disable them by adjusting the settings on your browser. However this may make some aspects of our website, and other websites, harder to use and in some cases may mean you are unable to use certain sections.For more information about Google Analytics visit the Google Analytics website.
