4. Cookies

A 'cookie' is text which attaches to your hard drive and from which it can store and sometimes track information on how you make use of a particular website. Please note that the websites to which the site may be linked may also make use of their own cookies to collect information from you.

We may use 'cookies' for administrative purposes such as cataloguing traffic patterns throughout the website and can use a cookie to assign a 'user ID' for this purpose. Cookies, by themselves, cannot be used to find out the identity of any user. If you have a user ID this will automatically identify your computer - but not you - to our server when you visit our website. Unless you specifically tell us, we will never know who you are, even if we do assign a cookie to your computer.

You may set your browser to automatically reject all cookies. It is also possible to set your browser to notify you if a cookie has been sent to you so that you can, at your option, accept or reject that particular cookie. However, please note that you may not be able to use the service on our website or other websites without cookies.
