We use Google Analytics cookies. These help us to improve our website by providing statistical information about how visitors use our site, such as the number of visitors to the site, the pages they visit, the length of time spent on the site, and whether they use a smartphone, a tablet or a desktop computer. These cookies don't collect any personal information that might identify you. All the information that the cookies collect is aggregated and therefore completely anonymous.
The Google Analytics cookies we use are known as ‘First-Party’ cookies as they can only be set and read by our own website. These cookies are optional and our website will work whether you accept them or not. We ‘anonymize’ your IP address for your privacy and do not collect any personal information.
We do not have marketing or advertising cookies on our site.
When you first visit a page on our website, we show a pop-up message asking you to either opt in to accept our cookies or customise your preferences to accept or reject Analytics cookies. This informed opt-in is required under the EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). You can change your preferences at any time using the button below. We store your choice in cookies called “cookieControl” and “cookieControlPrefs”. These cookies are necessary to record your choice, but will expire in 5 days if you do not visit our site in the meantime.

Third-party content, maps or Youtube videos
We sometimes embed maps or video content from external websites such as OpenStreetMap, Google Maps or YouTube. As a result, when you visit a page with embedded content from an external site, the external site may set their own cookies. ISVR Consulting does not control these ‘third-party’ cookies. You should check the relevant third-party website for more information about these. Many browsers can be set up to prevent ‘third-party’ cookies. Many browsers have a ‘do not track’ option, though not all websites will honour that choice.
