Our use of cookies

In May 2011 the EU e-Privacy directive, often referred to as the ‘Cookie Law’ came into effect in the UK. Below we set out our use of cookies on the ICPC website.

Cookies are text files of information, downloaded to your computer or mobile device. The information is stored in the form of a small data file written to your hard drive. These contain information which enables us to personalise your use of our website and present you with relevant content. Access to the online-booking secure areas of the website is dependent upon the use of cookies.

Cookies also enable us to analyse and improve the navigation and content of the website. Most browsers allow the user to control the cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them. If you disable cookies on your computer or device, some of the features of our website may be unavailable to you.
