On May 26th 2011 a new EU law came into effect that requires website owners to make changes to their sites. This ‘Cookie Law’ is actually amended privacy legislation that requires websites to obtain informed consent from visitors before they can store or retrieve any information on a computer or any other web connected device. This page is intended to inform you about the cookies we set so that you can give that consent. You can also read more about our privacy policy
