As part of changes to UK privacy regulations, it’s necessary to explicitly get opt-in for cookies that are not required for the operation of a website. This includes tracking cookies used for analytics.
Therefore a once-only pop-up will appear so that you can give us, or indeed deny us the ability to place cookies on your computer for statistical data collection purposes.
We hope you appreciate our need to do this and we would also encourage all of you to check other sites that you visit comply with this legal requirement. Thanks.
