Introduction

As a charity it's important to us to make the best use of our limited resources, both financial and the time our volunteers devote to running and maintaining the website.

To understand how users interact with our website and make the best use of our resources we use cookies (small text files placed on your computer) to monitor our web traffic. The cookies are set via open source software called Piwik which we run ourselves and only we have access to the data.

Piwik does not track or keep personally identifiable information and only presents us with aggregate numbers of page views, document downloads, etc. Any IP addresses have the last digits removed.

We understand that users may have privacy concerns about cookies. You can opt out of receiving these Piwik cookies below. We also honour the Do Not Track system.

Our website also uses functional cookies for managing your viewing session, serving pages correctly, the shopping basket facilities and login access to restricted areas. We do not store functional cookie information.

In addition our website also uses other internet services that do use cookies. This includes fundraising tools, multi-media and social media services. We can't control whether such cookies are set as they are set by the third party providers. We believe that the providers that set the cookies deliver features and benefits that we could not otherwise provide to users of our website.

The law now requires website owners to get consent in order to store or access information (including cookies) on users’ computers – unless the cookie is necessary to provide a service requested by the user.
