Security
We use security cookies to authenticate users, prevent fraudulent use of login credentials and protect user data from unauthorised parties.
For example, we use cookies called ‘’ and ‘’ which contain digitally signed and encrypted records of a user’s member ID and most recent sign-in time. The combination of these two cookies allows us to block many types of attack, such as attempts to steal the content of forms that you complete on web pages.

Process
Process cookies help make the website work and deliver services that the website visitor expects, like navigating around web pages or accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, the website cannot function properly.

Session State

We use these so-called ‘session state cookies’ to help us improve our services, in order to improve our users’ browsing experience. Blocking or deleting these cookies will not render the website unusable.

Storage
We may preserve the contents of any e-mail or other material you send to us, in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests, improve our services etc. All confidential information which we collect and keep is retained by us and is kept confidential to the same standard that we use for our own confidential information. However, we cannot guarantee the security of transmissions nor that our systems are impervious to unauthorized or malicious intrusion, nor can we control if e-mails to and from our mail server are read or copied by a third party.
