Information on the use of cookies on this website

What are 'cookies'?

We use 'cookies', i.e. small files stored by your browser, to collect and analyse data about the way in which our website is used.

Analytical cookies only

We do not use cookies to collect personal data or pseudonymised data. We do not use remarketing or personalisation ('profiling') and we do not store IP addresses. In other words, we do not use tracking cookies, i.e. cookies that can follow visitors during their visits to other websites.

The only cookies we use are analytical cookies, i.e. cookies for research and statistical purposes. We do this in order to see how visitors use our website. This information helps us to improve the website and make it more user-friendly (for example, by remembering which menu item you chose and which search terms you used, in case you wish to use them again during a later visit).

These types of cookies do not affect your privacy. Because we satisfy all the various requirements (i.e. we do not collect data for advertising purposes and we do not share data with Google or any other third parties), we do not need to ask you for permission to place analytical cookies.

No Google Analytics

This website uses Piwik rather than Google Analytics for measuring website visits. Piwik is an open-source web analysis application. Only our own staff have access to the data collected in Piwik. At the time of writing, we had not yet completed our transition to Piwik. For more details about Piwik, see http://piwik.org/.
