4. Cookies

4.1. Cookies are small pieces of data sent from websites like this one to your computer when you load webpages. They are stored on your hard drive. A cookie cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites, and will not damage your system. A cookie can tell us when a computer that has previously visited our site returns, and what pages it requests on each of its visits. Cookies help us improve our site and keep track of how our visitors (or more accurately, their computers) use our site, including such things as the type of browser they use, the frequency of their visits and the pages that are most popular. They make it easier for you to navigate our site by keeping track of information that has already been provided by your computer so that you do not need to re-enter it. If you would still prefer not to receive any cookies, most browsers can be set to refuse cookies or to alert you when one is being sent. Please note, some parts of this site (e.g. services accessed while logged in, and all transaction/checkout facilities) may not work as intended if cookies are refused.

As well as on our website, we use cookies in our email communications via MyEmma, an email service provider. The cookies track whether an email has been opened and read, and whether the recipient has used any onward links in the email. This helps us monitor and improve our email communications.

5. Links to other sites

5.1. Our site contains links to other sites that are not under our control. We do not control cookies placed on your computer by third parties whose links appear on our site.

6. Security of private information

6.1. We would like to be able to tell you that the personal information you provide us with is absolutely safe. Unfortunately, it is impossible for anyone to be completely confident in this, as evidenced by the instances of computer security breaches often seen in the media. However we take reasonable steps to protect the information you provide us from theft, alteration or unauthorized inspection.

7. Parents and guardians

7.1. We encourage you to get involved with your children’s online usage and to be aware of the activities in which they are participating. We also ask you to check back here regularly to see what our latest policies are, particularly those relating to children. You should be aware that if your children voluntarily disclose their names, email addresses or other information on bulletin boards or chat areas of other websites, such disclosures may result in unsolicited messages from other parties. We suggest that you discourage your child from providing such information on this site or elsewhere unless you are confident that the information will not be misused.
