Cookies Statement

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small piece of data or message that is sent from a website’s server to your web browser and is then stored on your hard drive. They’re generally used to improve your user experience by – for example – remembering what’s in your online shopping basket or keeping you logged in on a website as you navigate from one page to another. Cookies can’t read data off your hard drive or other cookie files, and do not damage your system.

How we use cookies?

First party cookies

The only first party cookies we use allow Google Analytics to monitor the performance of our website.

Third party cookies

We only use essential third party cookies to process – for example – process a payment you have made for an event. Without them you would simply lose information from one page to the next.

We also use social media (e.g. Twitter, Facebook, YouTube) and their buttons to connect with/to their websites, so read their cookie use policy to check what information they’re collecting on you too.

E-newsletter and E-mails

Our e-newsletters and e-mails may be trackable at an individual level, allowing us to determine, for example, opens and link clicks. This information is generally used to help assess the effectiveness of communications so that – for example – we can improve how we write our e-newsletters and what information we include in them.

How to change your cookies?

First party

Your web browser settings allow you to refuse any cookie or to alert you to when a cookie is being sent. They also allow you to control cookies stored on your hard drive.

Third party

The above applies but as mentioned before the only third party cookies we use are essential to complete certain tasks, therefore if you disable them, the thing you’re trying to do won’t work.

E-newsletter and E-mails

These are essential so if you wish to disable tracking then please unsubscribe from our mailing list. This can be done by either unsubscribing at the bottom of your most recent email sent from us, but please note, unsubscribing from ANY e-newsletter communication will prevent any future communications being sent to that email address.

What cookies we use?

Please note: if you change your cookie settings, some of the features on our site may not work as well as we intend.
