Our privacy and cookie policy

Our site uses the following cookies. 

exp_tracker: this cookie temporarily keeps track of the last 5 pages you visited on the site. This information allows the site to redirect you to the page you were on before activities such as submitting a comment or sending an email through the contact form. It is a ‘session’ cookie, meaning it expires as soon as you close your browser.

exp_last_activity and exp_last_visit: these cookies store the dates of your last activity on the site. exp_last_visit is only relevant to registered users — if you’re browsing the site as a guest, this cookie will be set to a date in the past. These are ‘persistent’ cookies, which do not automatically expire when you close your browser.

exp_css_skin: if you have made any display choices (for example to select a high-visibility layout for visually impaired visitors) this persistent cookie is used to remember your choice next time you visit.

Our website uses Google Analytics to collect aggregated statistical information as above. We also use AddThis to share content to other sites (e.g. twitter).

These external sites set their own cookies. Please see Google's Privacy Centre, and Privacy Policy, for details of the information Google collects, and AddThis Data collection opt out for details of you can opt of providing information to these services.

You may opt to view the site without cookies by adjusting your browser's settings.  See your browser's Help menu for information on how to do this.
