Cookie policy

A cookie is a small file placed on your computer which enables our website to recognise you as you browse different pages on our site. It enables us to confirm whether you are signed in as a subscriber, and to offer content, options and functions which are specific to you. It also enables us to see how many people visit the website and which pages they view.

Cookies do not provide us with any means to access your computer or any information about you other than that which you choose to share with us.

You can refuse to accept cookies from us, but your browsing experience may be impacted and some pages may not be accessible. We will issue cookies to your computer unless you have configured your browser to refuse them.

What data do we collect?

The data we collect may include the following:
– Name
– Contact information including email address
– Demographic information such as postcode and preferences
– Website usage information
– Other information relevant to special offers and surveys

We collect information about visitors to this website in order to understand better how visitors use the site, and to provide relevant information and enable certain functions on the website.

When you fill in a form or provide your details on this website, you are opting in to communications from us by email, solely for the purposes of informing you about new content or policy changes relating to this website, or to respond to your communication. You can easily change your mind later by signing into the website and changing your personal preferences, or by emailing or writing to us as shown above.

We will never pass your details to any third party without your express permission or as required by law. All personal details held about you are stored securely and used in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

Links to other websites

Our website may contain links to other third party websites, or may include embedded content (e.g. media, articles, Google Maps etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

We have no control over such third party websites and are not responsible for data protection and privacy when you connect to these sites.


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. Visitor comments will be checked through an automated spam detection service.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

If you upload images to the website, note that any images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) can be downloaded by visitors to the website, and any location data in these images can be extracted.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
