We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors. This policy sets out how CE Media Events Ltd will treat your personal information when you use any of our websites.
A cookie consists of information sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser. We may use both ‘session’ cookies and ‘persistent’ cookies on the website. We will use the session cookies to keep track of you while you navigate the website, and the persistent cookies to enable our website to recognise you when you visit. Session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date. Most browsers allow you to refuse or accept cookies. (Within Internet Explorer, for example, you can refuse all cookies by clicking ‘Tools’, ‘Internet Options’, ‘Privacy’ and then selecting ‘Block all cookies’ using the sliding selector.) This will, however, have a negative impact on the usability of many websites, including this one.
