What is the Security Code?

Online forms can be vulnerable to attack from small programs called "bots" that scan the web and exploit form mail facilities to send out junk e-mail messages.

As well as being inconvenient, this can also damage the reputation of the website owner who may appear to have sent the junk e-mail.

By creating a picture with a string of characters and asking you to type them into the box, we can screen out these bots (which are unable to read the image) and prevent the majority of these attacks.

This procedure also reduces the risk that you will receive junk e-mail messages via this website.

  • The characters in the code are case-insensitive.
  • If you have difficulty reading the code, press the refresh button Refresh Image to change it
