When you visit the site we may store some information (commonly known as a “cookie”) on your computer. Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to your hard drive to store and sometimes track information about you. Cookies are specific to the server that created them and cannot be accessed by other servers, which means that they cannot be used to track your movements around the web. Passwords and credit card numbers are not stored in cookies.

A cookie helps you get the best out of the site and helps us to provide you with a more customised service. We use cookies for the following purposes:

  • so that you will not have to re-enter your details each time you visit the site
  • to track how the Site is used and to improve and update our content

You can block or erase cookies from your computer if you want to (your browser’s help screen or manual should tell you how to do this), but certain parts of the site are reliant on the use of cookies to operate correctly and may not work correctly if you set your browser not to accept cookies.

Most browsers are automatically set to accept cookies and you should be able to restrict or disable them if you wish by adjusting the settings on your browser. This will however affect your use of the areas of our site that use persistent cookies, such as the login areas. We do not use ‘spyware’, that is web bugs or hidden identifiers or other similar devices to gain access to information, store hidden information or to trace your activities. For more information about cookies and instructions on how to adjust your browser settings to restrict or disable cookies, see the IAB website at

Cookies Used

This is a Google analytics cookie and is used to distinguish unique users by assigning a randomly generated number as a client identifier. It is included in each page request in a site and used to calculate visitor, session and campaign data for the sites analytics reports.

This is a Google analytics cookie, used to throttle the request rate – limiting the collection of data on high traffic sites. It expires after 10 minutes.

This is a Google session cookie, used to distinguish users.

This is a Google session cookie, used to distinguish users. Default expiration time: 24 hours

This is a cookie to determine if the register pop up form should display. If a visitor has already seen the pop up then the ‘pop’ cookie is set and the visitor will not see the pop up form.

This cookie protects against Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF). A CSRF attack forces a logged-on victim’s browser to send a forged HTTP request, including the victim’s session cookie and any other automatically included authentication information, to a vulnerable web application. This allows the attacker to force the victim’s browser to generate requests the vulnerable application thinks are legitimate requests from the victim.

Tracks the last 5 pages viewed by the user, and is used primarily for redirection after logging in etc. Affects guests and logged in users.

Every time the state is updated (the page reloaded) the last activity is set to the current datetime. Used to determine expiry. This is essential for logged in users, but not for guests – it is set for both.

Sets the datetime that the user last visited the site, and is set for both guests and logged in users. If not set, is automatically set to 10 years ago. Affects guests and logged in users.

DoubleClick uses cookies to improve advertising. Cookies themselves contain no personally identifiable information. One of the main advertising cookies on non-Google sites is named ‘IDE‘ and is stored in browsers under the domain
