This web site may set a session cookie in your browser. This is so that the web server can connect your page views together in the same way that you, when listening to a conversation, connect individual words together to be able to understand what is being said.
The cookie will be forgotten when your browser closes. The web server does not retain any permanent information just due to the session cookie's existence.
The web pages here do not include content from other web sites that may set a cookie of their own; ie you should not get third party cookies, these are cookies from other sites that may be used to track you as you move around the Internet.

The web server will keep in its Apache log files a record of your vist: date & time, IP address, URL visited and any errors that may have occurred ‐ as is standard Apache logging.
These Apache log records may be analysed by the website owner to provide aggregate statistics about topics such as: web site performance; the most popular pages & busy times of day.
More permanent information may be kept as a result of you filling in a form (eg enquiry) or sending an email. This information will only be shared with our staff and, on a needs to know basis, web site maintainers. We will, reluctantly, share records with law enforcement, or others, as required by UK law.
