We do not retain any personal or personally-identifiable information about visitors to our website, and have no intention of doing so in the future.

Use of Cookies

A cookie is a small piece of data which is sent out from a web server to your computer, and which is stored as a file.  A cookie cannot read data from your computer or any other cookie files, and will do no harm to your system.

Two types of cookies are used on this site: Session cookies and Permanent cookies.

The Members' login section uses a session cookie to keep branch members logged in during their browser session.  Session cookies have a short life span and expire shortly after leaving the site.

Anonymous statistics are also collected for the purpose of web traffic analysis, using Google Analytics.  This allows us to gather overall figures about how many people have visited which parts of the site and how often.  The information gathered helps us to work out which pages are the most and least popular, so that we can improve the site.  Permanent cookies are used by Google Analytics, but the data reported does not identify you specifically.  The information is collected anonymously, and the Analytics program only looks at the collective users' experience.

You can stop cookies from being deployed on your computer by configuring your browser not to accept them or opt-out.  Please refer to your browser's 'help' facility.  If cookies are already on your system, you can delete them - For more information on cookies and deletion of cookies please visit:

In line with our Privacy Policy, cookies from this website are not used to store private data about you, and are not reused for advertising during future visits to the site.
