The cookie stores a number in your browser which uniquely identifies that browser on a specific computer: it does not identify a specific person and will not contain any of your personal information. Browsers may be associated with a demographic category, such as gender, or age range based on the sites visited. Some sites might also provide Google with demographic data that you share on social networking sites and/or Google profiles.

Our website uses the Google AdWords remarketing service to advertise on third party websites (including Google) to previous visitors to our site. It could mean that we advertise to previous visitors who haven’t completed a task on our site, for example using the home page contact form to make an enquiry.

Advertisments could appear on the Google search results page, or a site in the Google Display Network. Equally third-party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on someone’s past visits to our website. Of course, any data collected will be used in accordance with our own privacy policy and Google’s privacy policy.
