EU Cookie directive

From 26 May 2011 a new European Union directive requires us to gain the consent of our users to download cookies on to their machines. There are various methods we could use to gain users consent. For example, we could prompt users to tick a box to confirm they give permission for us to download cookies on their machine. Alternatively, we could use an online form that all users must complete before using the website. We consider both of these solutions as obtrusive. We want our users to find information and services quickly. Therefore, we have taken the decision to promote how we use cookies on our website instead. This will enable users to make an informed decision whether they want to disable this feature. There are links on our terms and conditions page which is in the footer of every web page pointing to this information.
