We consider Google to be a third party data processor (see section 6.0 below).

GA makes use of cookies, details of which can be found on Google’s developer guides.

Our policy is that cookies data collected by GA will be retained for a period of 50 months after which point GA will delete the data. Should you visit our website in the intervening period, the “clock” will reset for a further 50 months

Disabling cookies via the options menu on your internet browser will stop GA from tracking any part of your visit to pages within this website. You can also delete any cookies that are already stored on your computer’s hard drive.
