Cookies are small text files that we use mainly to allow our site to work correctly for you. We also use third party services, such as Google Analytics, to tell us how our site is performing and what people are looking for when they visit. We don't contain any personally identifiable information in this way, and none of the cookies can harm your device in any way.

We do collect personal information when you contact us or buy something from the site. The only information collected is that which you expressly allow to share with us. To protect you, this information is collected via a secure connection, and stored in encrypted form on our database.

Privacy Policy

How We Respect Your Privacy (and your time)

Like almost everyone nowadays, we suffer daily from the irresponsible use of e-mail. We remain unable to understand the philosophy that it's possible to generate sales by irritating customers, but it must be working for someone, or surely they'd have stopped by now.

We deplore this misuse of a superb communication medium and we are committed to avoiding adding to the burden of useless information. This means that, first and foremost, we do not share your information with anyone outside our own organisation, and that we take pains to protect the information that is under our care.

When you register any of your details with us, they are added to our list of opted-in subscribers. We record the interest that you have indicated to ensure that we only contact you with relevant information.

Contact Forms

If you've used a contact form or e-mail to make an enquiry, then we'll respond to that enquiry only. If this leads to a dialogue between us - as we hope it will - then we'll continue communications on the basis that we're doing so at your invitation, and that you can withdraw that invitation at will.

Registering for News and Information

Where you've registered for news or information, we don't add you immediately to our subscription list. Instead we send you an e-mail by return asking you to confirm that you do indeed want to receive updates. This helps us to ensure that you've genuinely requested contact, and that you haven't been added mischievously to our list. Only when you confirm your wishes will you be added to the list.

Removing Yourself From Our Lists

Whenever we send out update information, we always include a link to unsubscribe from the list. We promise that this is a genuine, working un-subscription link, and that clicking it will prevent further automated contact from us. Should you wish us to remove you completely from our database, then please click here and we will purge our records entirely. Sending this request will prompt one further e-mail from us to confirm that this is what you require.

Regularity of Contact

We have no wish to annoy you with over-frequent, irrelevant or trivial contact. Accordingly, we don't operate a regular newsletter type of approach to our updates. Only when we have something to say that we believe will be genuinely interesting and useful to you will we send out an update. This may mean that months elapse between updates, and then you receive two in one week. Whatever the frequency, we'll always err on the side of under-contact rather than risk becoming just another e-mail spammer.

More about our Cookies

Our own cookies

We use cookies to make our website work, including:

Passing information about a choice you made on a page to another page on our website.  Note that we have no access to this information, and it is deleted when you close your browser.  It's used purely to provide you with the information you've chosen to view.

Visitor Statistics Cookies

We use cookies to compile visitor statistics such as how many people have visited our website, what type of technology they are using (e.g. Mac or Windows which helps to identify when our site isn't working as it should for particular technologies), how long they spend on the site, what page they look at etc. This helps us to continuously improve our website. These analytics programs also tell us if how people reached this site (e.g. from a search engine) and whether they have been here before, helping us to put more money into developing our services for you instead of marketing spend.

Turning Cookies Off

You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies (Learn how here). Doing so however will likely limit the functionality of ours and a large proportion of the world's websites as cookies are a standard part of most modern websites.

It may be that your concerns around cookies relate to so called "spyware". Rather than switching off cookies in your browser you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive. Learn more about managing cookies with antispyware software.
