You agree to (a) immediately notify ASCL of any unauthorised use of your password or username and any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you log out at the end of each session.

We may also store information about you using cookies (text files which are sent by us to your computer or other access device)  Cookies allow a website to remember things like your preferences or what’s in your shopping basket.

Most websites you visit will use cookies in order to improve your user experience by enabling that website to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’).

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, storing your preferences, and generally improving your experience of a website. Cookies make the interaction between you and the website faster and easier. If a website doesn’t use cookies, it will think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site – for example, when you enter your login details and move to another page it won’t recognise you and it won’t be able to keep you logged in.

Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although this is generally quite harmless you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies.

Information on deleting or controlling cookies is available here.

Please note that by deleting our cookies or disabling future cookies you may not be able to access certain areas or features of our site.
