E.U. Cookie Law and this website

This website uses Google Analytics to monitor site traffic whilst not retaining any personally identifiable data. Google defines the cookies assocaited with Analytics as follows:

‘Like many services, Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to report on visitor interactions. These cookies are used to store non-personally identifiable information, such as what time the current visit occurred, whether the visitor has been to the site before, and what site referred the visitor to the web page. Browsers do not share first-party cookies across domains.’

The information from Analytics helps me to understand which areas of this site are most popular, and which areas need more work. For example, there may be a lot of searches for a particular Stockport area or building, which I could then look at including more information or pictures of. All I know is that x number of enquiries came from Stockport, y from somewhere in Australia, z from America etc., and no further identifiable information is stored or available.

If, however, you wish to opt out of Google Analytics, you can do so here.

Cookies from user requested services like Paypal are essential for the service to work, for example to remember you want to buy book no1 whilst you carry on shopping for book no2, and as such are treated as an exception to the new law.
