This site places one google cookie in your web browser so that we can see how many people are looking at our pages. We also embed some content from facebook, which you can see by clicking on the little facebook logo at top right. They no doubt set and read some cookies of their own to decide who you are and whether you like us or not.
The google cookie is anonymous and tells us nothing about you personally. It’s just a little marker so that we don’t count you twice. After the Show, we use the figures for page views to work out how well we are doing, which parts of the site need improvement and what sort of thing people are looking for.
