How we use cookies


Our site uses cookies in several places – we’ve listed each of them below with more details about why we use them and how long they will last.
Measuring website usage (Google Analytics)

We use Google Analytics to collect information about how people use this site. We do this to make sure it’s meeting its users’ needs and to understand how we could do things better.

Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you’re on the site, how you got here and what you click on. We don’t collect or store your personal information (e.g. your name or address) so this information can’t be used to identify who you are. We don’t allow Google to use or share our analytics data.

The following cookies are set by Google Analytics:
 Name      Typical content      Expires
_utma     randomly generated number     2 years
_utmb     randomly generated number     30 minutes
_utmc     randomly generated number     When you close your browser
_utmx     randomly generated number     2 years
