From time to time, you will be asked to submit personal information about yourself (e.g. name and email address) in order to receive or use services on our website.

External websites. We may in similar fashion to other websites include referral links to information, products or services on external websites, for example a clickable advertising banner to a website which provide vintage photographs. We are not responsible for the content, policies or workings of external websites, their content or their policies.

Cookies. A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a website’s computer and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Many sites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows. Cookies record information about your online preferences. Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these, of course, means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user user and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of the features available on our website. Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
Your visit to this website or its host together with any navigation may be recorded by our website statistics software. Aside from options in your web browser, you can also use a third party application such as the excellent and free CCleaner to remove any cookies and temporary Internet Cached files.
