The bit we cannot control…
We will use cookies (electronic tags) to monitor your browsing and buying habits on our site, for example, which pages are visited. If you have registered with us then your computer will store an identifying cookie which will save you time each time you revisit SME, by remembering your email address for you. You can change the settings on your browser to prevent cookies being stored on your computer without your explicit consent. Please see our cookie policy for full details.

Do not track (DNT) is a feature offered by most browsers, with some newer browsers offering it as default. If enabled, it sends a signal to websites to request that your browsing isn’t tracked. Tracking is used for a wide variety of reasons ranging from social or advertising networks measuring effectiveness or third-party analytical services such as Google Analytics to improve customer experience and provide statistical analysis.
