Clicking "Allow cookies" on our cookie bar will set a cookie on your device to remember not to show the cookie bar anymore because you accept the use of these necessary cookies.

The EU legislation regarding cookies means that we have to inform you of all cookies used by our site. Many lawyers advise that you should have a cookie policy even if you don't use cookies. On most sites cookies will be in use due to third party code, or security and performance actions by the service provider and so these have to be listed. Amusingly, at the time of writing, we only have one cookie used on this site, which is the cookie to say you have accepted or declined the use of cookies. Either way, you don't want to see the cookie bar anymore, so we have still have to store a cookie even if you don't want cookies, so that we remember that you don't want cookies. That's the crazy world of EU legislation for you.
