. You can opt-out of almost all advertising cookies at http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices

out of advertising cookies will not mean you won't see adverts,
just simply that they won't be tailored to you any longer.
We fund our site by showing adverts as you browse our site. These
adverts are usually managed by a partner specialising in providing
adverts for multiple sites. Invariably these partners place cookies
to collect anonymous data about the websites you visits so they can
personalise the adverts to you, ensure that you don't see the same
adverts too frequently and ultimately report to advertisers on
which adverts are working. Our partners include:
You may notice that sometimes after visiting a site you see
increased numbers of adverts from the site you visited. This is
because advertisers, including ourselves pay for these adverts. The
technology to do this is made possible by cookies and as such we
may place a so called "remarketing cookie" during your visit. We
use these adverts to offer special offers etc to encourage you to
come back to our site. Don't worry we are unable to proactively
reach out to you as the whole process is entirely anonymised. You
can opt out of these cookies at anytime as explained above.
Turning Cookies Off

"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

feedback, or to receive email or attend events that are advertised
here, we will collect the information that is needed to provide

Why do we collect personal information?
Our sites are tailored to provide you with a personalised view
of the data they hold. To do that, we need to collect information
in a profile relating to your use of the site and your personal
data. In some cases (for example with your email address) we may
need to use that data to contact or interact with you, and the data
will be held in an identifiable form, securely on our servers. In
other cases (for example with passwords) we only need to hold
enough information to check that data you provide matches that held
by us, and we are unable to retrieve the actual data directly (for
example to tell you a forgotten password). At any time, for payment
of a small fee, we will inform you as to the data currently held on
our server about you, and allow you to correct or have it
By providing us with your contact details, you permit us to
contact you regarding events or other services that we may offer
from time to time, by email, telephone, fax or social networking.

relevant box in your profile or registration, and will use this
privilege with due care and attention. We do not pass the
information you provide through to third parties without your
express permission, unless required by law.
