EU cookie directive

From 26 May 2011 a new European Union directive required all websites to gain the consent of our users to download cookies on to their machines. On 24 May 2012, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) released new guidance which said that a website can operate with cookies through ‘implied consent.’

Implied consent

There are various methods available to use to gain users consent but we consider these solutions as obtrusive. We want our users to find information and services quickly, and following the ICO’s May 2012 release, we have taken the decision to promote how we use cookies on our website and provide you with enough information to control your own settings.

Implied consent means that by using our website, you agree to cookies being set. If users want to disable cookies, this policy talks you through how to do this.
