Much of this page is a report of the 'cookie policy' on the CTE website as at 21.08.12.

A cookie is a small piece of text sent from a website and stored in a visitors's web browser. The cookie can be retrieved by the website the next time the visitor returns, so that the website can, for example, remember saved preferences.

A new EU law means that certain types of cookies, eg those determined non essential to the running of the website, can only be set after the visitor has consented to their use.

Guidance on the rules of cookies is provided by the Information Commissioner's Office:

At CTE we have looked at the guidance provided by ICO and our technical web providers: Endis:

CTE website cookies

The CTE website does not have advertisers or other third party interests and we control all the web material ourselves. Neither do we use research applications or plugins that could generate extra cookies which we do not know about. Our current audit of cookie use on the CTE website therefore suggests that only essential cookies are in use to make the website work, as listed by the Endis cookie policy above. As a result, we believe our cookie policy can be 'implied consent' as all our cookies are essential to the working of the site and of low risk to the visitor.

'Implied consent' means that visitors to the CTE website are not asked to provide 'explicit consent' to cookies on our website. However, 'implied consent' does mean that visitors to the CTE website should understand that essential cookies are sent from the CTE website to the visitors web browser as a result of their visit. These cookies help the visitor return to our website, move from one page to another more quickly, access information and other essential features of the website. They also assist the website in storing details when visitors wish to login, and they count the number of visitors we have to the site. Only details supplied by the visitor are stored on the CTE website and no third parties use cookies on our website.

We shall review this policy and change as necessary to further comply with new guidelines and directives.
