Privacy Policy

We take your privacy seriously, and this page explains how.


Links

Many links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target.
There are no “javascript:” pseudo-links. All links can be followed in any browser, even if scripting is turned off.
Links to external sites open in new windows.

Wherever possible, links are written to make sense out of context. Many browsers (such as JAWS, Home Page Reader, Lynx, and Opera) can extract the list of links on a page and allow the user to browse the list, separately from the page.
Images

All content images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative graphics include null ALT attributes.
Complex images include LONGDESC attributes or inline descriptions to explain the significance of each image to non-visual readers.
Visual design

This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout.
This site uses only relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified “text size” option in visual browsers.
If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.
Effort has been taken to maintain high background-foreground contrast at all times.
Forms

All forms follow a logical Tab sequence.
Labels are associated with fields using HTML label tags.
Scripting

This site makes use of scripting for visual effects. However, all content remains fully accessible if scripting is unavailable.
All pages use structured semantic markup. If you find any accessibility problems with our site, please contact us and we will do our best to fix them.

Disability Discrimination Act

To the best of our knowledge this site complies with the requirements of the British Disability Discrimination Act (DDA). If you require any assistance in reading or understanding this information please contact us.
