What are cookies?
A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets us know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website.

How to manage cookies
The browsers of most computers, smartphones, and other web-enabled devices, will typically accept cookies.
However, please remember that cookies are often used to enable and improve certain functions on a website. If you choose to switch certain cookies off, it is likely to affect how websites work. If you block cookies completely, many websites will not work properly and some functionality on these websites will not work at all.
This is very important because any settings that you change in your browser will not just affect PDH cookies, but will also apply to all websites that you visit (unless you choose to block cookies from particular sites).
Most modern browsers will allow you to:
- see the cookies that have been set and delete them on an individual basis
- block third party cookies
- block cookies from particular sites
- block all cookies from being set
- delete all cookies when you close your browser
If you wish to amend your cookie preferences for this website, you can do this by clicking on the pop up link ‘We value your privacy’ and then clicking the ‘Customise’ link.
Alternatively, you can set preferences using your browser. Your browser’s ‘help’ function will tell you how to do this. When our website provides links to other websites, please bear in mind that third party websites will have their own privacy and cookie policies that will govern the use of any information you submit. We recommend you read their policies, as PDH is not responsible or liable for their privacy practices.
It is possible to opt out of having your anonymised browsing activity within websites recorded by analytics cookies. PDH uses Google Analytics and you can opt out of their cookies by clicking on the following link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. Please note, this will take you to the relevant third party’s website and generate a ‘no thanks’ cookie, which will stop any further cookies being set by third parties.
Don’t forget that, by not allowing analytics cookies, this stops us from being able to learn what people like or don’t like about our website. Your activity on the website would therefore not be taken into account when we look at ways to improve it.
