What happens if you opt-out?
If you decide to disable cookies we record this so you don’t get asked the question again. You will find that most of the website works as expected although functions that rely on cookies are obviously disabled. These functions include using online forms (e.g. our enquiry form) or any feature that requires a login. We use a cookie to remember your preferences, which has a couple of consequences:

Finally, is this GDPR OR PECR?
The original EU legislation that became known as the “E-Privacy Directive” was published in 2003 and implemented as European Directive – 2002/58/EC then amended by Directive 2009/136/EC that included a requirement to seek consent for cookies and similar technologies. The EU Directive entered UK law on 26th May 2011 as “The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) (Amendment) Regulations 2011” often referred to as PECR – and this is still in force today. PECR sits alongside the more widely known legislation GDPR – both are regulated by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) www.ico.gov.uk.
