The law that applies to how cookies are used for storing information on your equipment (such as your computer or mobile device) changes on 25 May 2018. In general, you must provide specific, informed consent to the use of cookies or comparable tracking technology. However, under Recital 66 of the GDPR where cookies are strictly necessary for the legitimate purpose of enabling the use of a specific service that you have requested then your consent to processing may be expressed by using the appropriate settings of a browser or other application.

So we will now provide you with clear information about how our site uses cookies, and how to disable them if you wish.

Any information we collect via these cookies is used anonymously simply to improve and enhance your experience of our website. We will not use the information to identify individuals or share it with anyone else.
