What is the new law?

A new EU law regarding the use of cookies has come into effect which requires websites to ask visitors for their consent to use most cookies.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small, often encrypted text files, located in browser directories. They are used by websites to help users navigate around efficiently and perform certain functions. Due to their core role of enhancing/enabling usability or site processes, disabling cookies may prevent features on a website from working.

Third party cookies

Cookies for certain other services (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, AddThis) are set by the embedded content. We don’t control these cookies so for more information we advise you to check those services’ cookie policies.

Most browsers will enable the use of cookies by default. Therefore if you wish to opt-out of the use of cookies you will need to change your browser settings. However, switching off cookies may restrict your use of our website and/or delay or affect the way in which our website operates.

The open nature of the internet is such that data may flow over networks without security measures, and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended. While this is out of our control, we aim to apply appropriate levels of security at all times.

Our website uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) to enhance security when entering sensitive data while requesting an online quote. SSL is the industry standard technology for protecting and maintaining the security of message transmissions over the internet. When you enter sensitive data from secured sites, encryption will scramble your data into an unreadable format to inhibit unauthorised access by others.
