For your convenience we have included links on this website to other sites that we believe you may find useful.
Please ensure, when you click on any of our links, that you read the privacy statement located on the website you have selected.
Any websites connected with this site are not within our control.
The cookies we use are ‘analytical’ cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the site when they’re using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example by making sure users are finding what they need easily.
For each visitor to our website, our web server automatically recognises only the consumer’s domain name. This information can be used to locate some geographical information, for example your nearest town. In some cases, it may identify your ‘network name’ (if for example you are accessing our website from an organisation with its own network). It does not give us any personal information relating to you as an individual (such as your name, address or email address). This information is used for internal review to improve the content of our web pages and its relevance to our customers.
By using our website, you are consenting to our usage of the cookies described above. If you do not wish to consent, you can change your browser settings to disallow cookies on this and/or other websites.
