Our cookies policy
We don’t and will never store personally identifiable information such as credit/debit card details in cookies we create, but we do use encrypted information gathered from them to help improve your experience and design of the web site. For example, they help us to identify and resolve errors.
We’re giving you this information as part of our initiative to comply with UK legislation, and to make sure we’re honest and clear about your privacy when using our website. We know you’d expect nothing less from us, and please be assured that we’re working on a number of other privacy and cookie-related improvements to the website.
To make full use of the personalised features on this web site, your computer, tablet or mobile phone will need to accept cookies, as we can only provide you with certain personalised features of this website by using them.
