Cookie Policy

Why have this policy?

The law has recently changed on how websites collect data from people visiting the site, on this website I use one form of cookie (a small text file placed on your computer) to track the number of visitors to my website. This cookie is part of the Google Analytics product.

Cookies

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer’s hard drive by websites you visit to enable the site to ’remember’ who you are. In general, cookies are only visible to the site that serves them, not to other websites. ‘Serves’ means places on your computer’s hard drive. I use the cookies on this website to ‘remember’ information so that it can be passed from page to page and to collect site statistics. For example, in the Events section, the information you put into the booking form on any page is stored on the webserver, and a cookie is used to point to that information. When you click ‘next’ to go to the next page of the form, our website reads the cookie which points back to the stored information so that it can be accessed by our site. I use three types of cookie on this site. None of them stores any information that identifies you personally, such as by a name or address.

Google Analytics

We use the free Google Analytics tool (seehttp://www.google.com/intl/en_uk/analytics/) to collect and analyse site statistics. Google Analytics uses persistent cookies to track data. These cookies do not collect any personally identifiable information and are only used for the statistical collection of data such as visits and page hits. Google Analytics’ cookies store IP addresses but I cannot link those addresses to any individual or path through the website. Google uses the cookies to read information and evaluate visitors’ use of the website in the form of statistical reports that I can access. The Google Analytics’ code is incorporated into our site’s code so that our site serves the cookies, but Google has access to the cookies. You can stop being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites by going to Google’s site at: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout

Google Analytics’ terms require us to reproduce the following wording in this policy:
