OUR COOKIES POLICY

Introduction

Our website uses cookies. By using our website and agreeing to this policy, you consent to our use of cookies.


About cookies

A cookie is a file containing an identifier that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. Cookies can be used by web servers to identity and track users as they navigate different pages on a website and identify users returning to a website.


Cookies may be either "persistent" or "session" cookies. A persistent cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which will be stored by the browser and remain valid until its set expiry date. A session cookie expires at the end of the user session. We use both session cookies and persistent cookies.


Third party [and analytics] cookies

When you use our website, you may be sent third party cookies. They may use the information they obtain from your use of their cookies:

  • to track your browser across multiple websites;
  • to build a profile of your web surfing;
  • to target advertisements which may be of particular interest to you.

Cookies and personal information

Cookies do not contain any information that identifies you, but personal information that we store about you may be linked by us to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.


Blocking cookies

Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies. For example:

  • in Internet Explorer you can block cookies using the cookie handling override.
  • in Firefox (version 16) you can block all cookies by clicking "Tools", "Options", "Privacy", selecting "Use custom settings for history" from the drop-down menu, and unticking "Accept cookies from sites"
  • in Chrome (version 23), you can block all cookies by accessing the "Customise and control" menu, and clicking "Settings", "Show advanced settings" and "Content settings", and then selecting "Block sites from setting any data" under the "Cookies" heading. Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites.

Deleting cookies

You can also delete cookies already stored on your computer. For example:

  • in Internet Explorer (version 9), you must manually delete cookie files (you can find instructions for doing so at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/278835)
  • in Firefox (version 16), you can delete cookies by clicking "Tools", "Options", "Privacy" and then "Show Cookies", and then clicking "Remove All Cookies"
  • in Chrome (version 23), you can delete all cookies by accessing the "Customise and control" menu, and clicking "Settings", "Show advanced settings" and "Clear browsing data", and then selecting "Delete cookies and other site and plug-in data" before clicking "Clear browsing data".

Again, doing this may have a negative impact on the usability of many websites.

ANTI SPAM POLICY

What is spam?

In the context of electronic messaging, ‘spam’ means unsolicited, bulk or indiscriminate messages typically sent for a commercial purpose. We have a zero-tolerance spam policy.


Spam filtering

Our systems automatically scan all incoming email and other messages and filter out messages that are, or appear to be, spam. At our discretion, we may report incoming email as spam. This may result in IP addresses and domain names being blacklisted.


Accuracy

No message filtering system is one hundred per cent accurate, and from time to time legitimate messages may be filtered. If you believe this has happened to a message you have sent, please advise.


You can reduce the risk of a message being caught by the spam filters by:

  • sending the message in plain text instead of or in addition to HTML.
  • avoiding the kin of terminology typically used by spammers
  • ensuring your messages are scanned for malware.

Receipt of unwanted messages from us

In the unlikely event that you receive any message from us that may be considered to be spam, please contact us and the matter will be investigated.


Changes to this anti-spam policy

We may, at our discretion, amend this policy at any time by publishing a new version on this website.
