Cookies and tracking

A cookie is a text file which a website installs on a user’s computer. Each time the user views a page on the website after a cookie has been installed, the website will recognise the user.
Cookies can be used to remember a user’s preferences, to keep track of which pages they’ve visited, or in some cases, to store personal information about them.
You can disable cookies for this website or for all websites but it might mean that they’re not so much fun to use. You can find instructions on how to change your cookie settings at this website:
What cookies does this site use?
1. Analytical cookies
This site uses a service called Google Analytics, which makes use of cookies to generate statistical and other information about how people use the website. The cookies are placed on your machine by Google.
We use the information we gather to identify and fix problems on the site as well as to offer more of the types of content that prove to be popular.
The information Google Analytics collects is anonymous. It includes information on how you found this site, which pages you looked at whilst you were here and for how long, what time of day your visit was, whether you have visited the site before and what area of the world you are in.
Although other sites you visit may also use Google Analytics, the information we gather is not linked to the information gathered on any other site.
Although we have access to this information, it is not us that stores it. The information is stored by Google. Google’s privacy policy is available here:
How can I stop my information from being collected?
You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting this information by disabling JavaScript in your web browser. The easiest way to find how to do this is to type “Disable JavaScript” along with the name of your browser (eg Chrome or Firefox) into a search engine. Again, browsing the web might not be so much fun if you do this.
