Privacy Policy


This web-site, like a great many others, uses cookies. For more information about what they are, why I use them and how you can disable them please see below.

Cookies are small files which are stored on the web browser in your computer or mobile device. They act as a 'memory' for your preferences and help you to use parts of the site.

I use cookies so that the site will work properly-for example, if cookies are disabled in your browser, you will not be able to contact me using the form provided. (You can still email me using the email address given on the Contact Me page). Where you do choose to give me information using that form or by email, you explicitly consent to my storing collecting and processing that information. 

I also use cookies for analysis purposes. This is to find out if you have visited this site before and if so, how often. They also help to determine which geographical region you access the site from. These 'analysis cookies' cannot be used to identify you and are used for statistical purposes only. I use a third party service known as Google Analytics for this and you can read more about it and the privacy policy which Google have, at Google Analytics

You can disable Google Analytics by deselecting the check box in the 'change your settings' link or in the  privacy settings box below. The other cookies I use cannot be disabled if the website is to work properly. However, they are deleted at the end of your browsing session (i.e. when you close your browser or shut down your computer).  Once disabled, you will be able to accept these cookies again, by clicking on the 'privacy settings' tab at the foot of the page. 

If you wish to turn off all cookies you should be able to do so by adjusting your browser's settings. These are usually found in the 'options' or 'preferences' section of your browser (you should use the help feature if you have difficulty).   Further information can be found using the following links:
