5.Website cookies and how we use them

Cookies are small pieces of information that websites send to your computer and store on your hard drive. They are not software - they can't be programmed or carry computer viruses. Cookies allow us to recognise your computer when you next visit our website, but they don't tell us who you are.
If you use our website, we will assume you consent to us storing and retrieving cookies, unless you have set your internet browser to stop cookies from being saved on your computer.
The European Union Cookie Directive, which came into effect under UK law on the 26 May 2011, states that websites need informed consent from their users before they can store or retrieve cookies on your computer. Until technology develops, the best way for us to get that consent is by letting you know here where we use cookies.

We use cookies to
• monitor how people use our site so we can improve any problem areas.

• enhance our website with information from other websites, for example YouTube videos and Google Maps. We work hard with these websites to ensure they use cookies appropriately, but - because third party websites set their own cookies - we don't have direct control over how they use them. However, you can manually block these cookies using your internet browser.

Disabling cookies
You can manually delete old cookies, and stop cookies from being saved on your hard drive in future - find out more on the All About Cookies website. However, disabling cookies may stop you from fully using all our website services.
We use cookies on these areas of our website:
• On the website generally
• When you make a donation
• In email
• For text size and web page formatting

On the website generally
We use Google Analytics to understand how people use our website so we can make it more effective. Google Analytics collects anonymous information about what people do on our website, where they've come from, and whether they've completed any tasks on the site, for example, signing up to volunteer or donating. Google Analytics tracks this information using cookies and JavaScript code.
