The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 relate to the use of so called ‘cookies’ on websites – and in particular how they store users’ details when they visit the sites.
In short, without them, some aspects of this website may not work. Cookies are also used for analytics software to help us improve the quality of service you receive on future visits to our site.
More specifically, I use tools such as Google Analytics to review who visits my site and from where (via my different social media profiles etc.) and to track my advertising and marketing statistics.
