COOKIES

A cookie is a piece of information in the form of a very small text file that is placed on an internet user’s hard drive.

It is generated by a web page server, which is basically the computer that operates a website. The information the cookie contains is set by the server and it can be used by that server whenever the user visits the site. A cookie can be thought of as an internet user’s identification card, which tells a website when the user has returned.

We make use of cookies to enable us to analyse how visitors to our websites are using them and what pages they
are visiting. This enables us to customise and personalise the content on our website. Cookies make the interaction between users and websites faster and easier. Without cookies, it would be very difficult for a website to allow a visitor to fill up a shopping cart or to remember the user’s preferences or registration details for a future visit.

We use websites such as Vimeo and YouTube to embed videos on our websites and you may be sent cookies from them via our site. Please look at the cookie and privacy policies on these 3 rd  party sites if you want more
information about this.

We also use 3rd party services such as Facebook, Eventbrite and Google analytics and these suppliers may also
make use of cookies.

As some of these 3rd party services may be based outside of the UK and the EU they may not fall under the
jurisdiction of UK courts.

This policy was last updated in September 2020 but will be subject to regular review. Please revisit it each time that you consider giving personal data.
