Site usage
Like virtually all web sites, we store anonymised data on visits in server log files, which contain IP addresses of machines used to access this site, and the pages requested.

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 it better.

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

The following cookies (small data files created on your computer) are set by Google Analytics:

Cookies are also used elsewhere on the site, including by the content management system we use, WordPress. These improve things by remembering settings, so you do not have to keep re-entering them whenever you visit a new page, log in or leave a comment.

Our cookies aren’t used to identify you personally. They are just here to make the site work better for you. Indeed, you can manage and/or delete these small files as you wish. To learn more about cookies and how to manage them, visit
