Website Cookie Policy

The purpose of this policy is to describe what cookies are, what we use them for, and to give you a choice to accept or decline them when using this website.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that websites may place in a user's browser directory. A website sends information to the browser which then creates a text file (cookie) unless the viewer has specifically refused cookies. Cookies are not viruses, they use a plain text format, so they cannot be executed. Many websites use cookies - you can find out more about them on the Internet Cookies website.

  • enhance functionality and your experience of the site (session cookies)
  • allow Google to track statistical data on site usage (3rd party analytics cookies)
  • link to social media (3rd party analytics cookies)

Are cookies optional?

Yes! All you need to do is to click the "Decline" button on this website's consent banner to reject its cookies. In general, your browser will accept cookies automatically unless a website gives you a choice to accept or decline them. You can always clean up your browser manually.
