Visitor tracking

Like almost all websites, we use Google Analytics (GA) to track how you interact with our website. This helps us understand how people find and use our website, allowing us to make changes to improve usability and user experience.

GA stores data such as your location, device, internet browser and operating system. This does not enable us to identify you personally.

Furthermore, GA record’s your device’s IP address. This could allow Google to personally identify you but we do not have access to this information.

You can disable cookies on your internet browser to stop GA from tracking your usage of this site.

We consider Google to be a third party data processor. See “Third Parties” section below.

If you choose to contact us using any enquiry forms on our website, none of the data that you enter will be stored by this website. Instead, the data you enter will be sent to us in an email over a secure mail server.
