Anonymous tracking software (Google Analytics)
We use Google Analytics as a service provided by Google. They gather anonymous data of how people are using this site and then provide us with visitor statistics, details of page views etc. You can think of it as being a bit like CCTV but one that automatically blurs your face so we can see what people have done, but not who. If you are anti-Google you can opt-out of being tracked by Google Analytics at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout (we'd prefer you didn't though as this data is seriously helpful to us in improving our website and to provide a better experience for you!) The cookies which Google places on your computer are called: _utma, _utmb, _utmc and _utmz, _qca. Doesn't have the same ring as 'Triple Chocolate Cookie' does it? Click here for an overview of privacy at Google. This is how long the tiny cookies will stay on your computer. However, you can delete them at any time from your browser.
Here is a bit more information about the cookie we place on your computer should you use the portal:
