Cookies
Cookies are small files which are downloaded to your computer when you view certain internet pages. This website (in common with the many other websites) uses Google "analytics" cookies to collect information such as how many new visitors our website has attracted and how many people have visited particular pages. However, this information is only collected by us in aggregate. That means that we know how many people have visited a particular page but we do not know who they are (so we would not be able to tell from this information that you personally have visited this website).  We use this information primarily to help us work out whether our content is proving interesting and helpful to users.
