Privacy statement

Your privacy is important to us. We do not collect information except under the following circumstances:

  • Where you are a member of this site: we store your user details which are primarily used to control access to the site
  • Website logs: we collect logfile information to use for generating qualitative and quantitative statistics to improve the website
  • Feedback or other forms: this information generates an email and does not remain on the website. It may be used to contact you (dependent upon the nature of the information you enter)


Cookies are used for virtually all websites as it is the only way of maintaining session state information (if you are interested in this subject you may want to research the Hypertext Transfer Protocol - HTTP). We use cookies in the following ways:

  • Transient session state information: this is used internally to simplify in-site URLs, for instance language and logon information. This information is not maintained after a short timeout period
  • Persistent logon information: if you log on to the website, we set a cookie to identify you next time you visit and save you the bother of logging on again. This cookie is removed when you log out.
  • Persistent skin changes: if you elect to use a different skin (if available), this will be stored in the cookie.
  • Other cookies: our ISP may set a cookie which is used by web traffic analysis tools which we use to analyse how effective our website is. We do not use this to directly identify individual visitors, although this is possible.

If you do not want to store cookies on your browser, you can change these settings. However, this will mean that you will have to logon at each site visit and may not be able to use certain skins.


We use popups for all the usual reasons such as displaying out-sized tables, pictures and the like. If you disable popups, you won't see these pages. We don't use popups for adverts and the like: it just annoys people.

If you'd like more information about the use of your data, please contact us.
