This page describes how we treat the information provided by visitors, what other information we gather and how we use it, why we sometimes need to store "cookies" and how to prevent this.
In common with almost all professionally run websites, this website logs the IP address of each visitor in order to keep it running reliably. This is also essential for protecting the website and its visitors from malicious attacks, including infection with malware.
This website provides information as a service to visitors such as yourself, and to do this reliably and efficiently, it sometimes places small amounts of information on your computer or device (e.g. mobile phone). This includes small files known as cookies.
The cookies stored by this website cannot be used to identify you personally.
