Cookies

We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our website. Your IP address is also used to gather broad demographic information.

The cookie is used to make the link between you and the information you have provided to the website. This allows us to help identify your computer so we can tailor your user experience. It also enables us to automatically complete some of the forms when you subsequently use them. The creation of a cookie on your computer does not give the website any access to other information such as your email address. You can disable any cookies already stored on your computer, but these may stop our website from functioning properly.

The European Union Directive on Privacy and Electronic Communications (the "Directive"), which came into force on 31st July 2002, recognises that cookies are a "legitimate and useful tool" for many activities, including verifying the identity of website users. The Directive makes it compulsory for websites to inform users if cookies are being used, and to provide some information on how cookies are used.
