Your privacy is very important to us.

This website has a few fundamental principles that it follows:

Measuring our Visitors

We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics.

We anonymise the data in Google Analytics – so we don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.
The information we collect helps us understand what parts of our site is doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. 
Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better. You can learn more about Google Analytics or opt out if you wish. Google Analytics data is automatically deleted 26 months after your last visit.
