Since 26 May 2011, the EU has required all websites to inform you about any cookies they may use and their puropse.
By using this website, you consent to us placing cookies on your machine and give permission for us to use any access logs we may maintain to attempt to track users who are reasonably suspected of gaining, or attempting to gain, unauthorised access.
By default, we use at least the following cookies:
|wordpress_test_cookie||Temporary. Required for operation of software.|
|wp-settings-1||Persistent. Required for operation of software.|
|wp-settings-time-1||Persistent. Required for operation of software.|
|civicAllowCookies||Persistent. Used to inhibit cookie warning.|
|catAccCookies||Persistent. Used to inhibit cookie warning.|
If you are concerned for your privacy, you may prefer to disable cookies on this site and on others. The most effective way to do this is to disable cookies in your browser. We suggest consulting the Help section of your browser or taking a look at the The Information Commissioner’s Office which offers guidance for all modern browsers.
In addition to cookies, log files are maintained on our servers and analysed of all requests for files or pages. These log files do not capture personal information but do capture the user’s IP address, which is automatically recognised by our web servers. Aggregated analysis of these log files is used to monitor website usage and gather statistical data for use by us and our agents.
Except as stated already, we will make no attempt to identify individual users unless they are suspected of abusing the website or attempting to gain unauthorised access. You should be aware, however, that access to web pages will generally create log entries in the systems of your ISP or network service provider. These entities may be in a position to identify the client computer equipment used to access a page should that be required by law enforcement. Such monitoring would be done by the provider of network services and is beyond the responsibility or control of ourselves.
We reserve the right to attempt to identify and track any individual who is reasonably suspected of trying to gain unauthorised access to computer systems or resources operating as part of our web services.
