Log files allow us to record visitors’ use of the site. We will regularly analyse log file information from our visitors, which we use to make changes to the layout of the site and to the information in it, based on the way that visitors move around it. Log files do not contain any personal information and they are not used to identify any individual patterns of use of the site.
