Cookies Policy

Our Privacy Policy  explains what personal information we collect about you how we use, store and share it, and your rights and choices concerning all that info (if you managed to get through it all). This Cookies Policy explains more about how we use cookies and similar technologies and the choices available to you. We would love to say I was smart enough to know what Cookies were and could write about it, we did start but it ended up being an excellent recipe with a warm centre that goes nicely with a glass of milk. So we took to Google and have used information there to explain it, which is why it won’t sound much like us, you could have done it instead (lazy) but legally I think we’re meant to have the documents!

 

What technologies do we use?

 

Like most services, we use cookies and similar technologies, as follows:

  • Cookies are small data files stored on your browser or device. They may be served by the entity that operates the website you are visiting (these are called “first-party cookies”) or by other companies (which are called “third-party cookies”). For example, we partner with third-party analytics providers, which set cookies when you visit our websites. This helps us understand how you and others are using our websites so that we can improve them.
  • Pixels are small images on a web page or in an email. Pixels collect information about your browser or device and can set cookies.
  • Local storage allows data about your browser or device to be stored locally on your browser or device and includes HTML5 local storage and browser cache.
  • All of this can be changed in your browser, do so at your own risk though.

 

How do we use Cookies and similar technologies?

 

Us and our analytics service providers use cookies, as described above, to recognise you when you visit our site, and to collect information such as the number of visits, which features or pages are popular, and other information about your browsing activities on our site. This allows us to ensure our website is functioning properly and to improve the interaction for a more fluid website. The purposes for which we use cookies generally fall into the following three categories:

  1. Functional Cookies: Examples of these cookies include those that help ensure our services function properly, to remember your settings and preferences, such as your language preferences, to help identify and prevent security risks, or to help us understand and improve our services.
  2. Performance Cookies: Examples of these cookies include those that collect information about how you interact with our services and personalise content for you.
  3. Advertising and Social Cookies: Examples of these cookies include those that make advertising more relevant and meaningful to visitors to our services, or to share with others on social media platforms, such as Facebook. We don’t think this happens with our website though.

 

What are your choices?

 

You have the following options to control or limit how we use cookies and similar technologies for advertising and analytics purposes:

  • Although most browsers and devices accept cookies by default, their settings usually allow you to clear or decline cookies. If you disable cookies, however, some of the features of our websites may not function properly. We don’t know what they may be, it’s just what we have read.
  • To stop your data from being used by Google Analytics, you can install Google’s opt-out browser add-on. You can also access your Google Adssettings to control what data Google uses to show ads to you.
  • Use your mobile device settings to control how data about your use of applications is used for purposes of showing ads that are targeted to your interests. For example, on your iOS device, enable the “Limit Ad Tracking” setting, and on your Android device, enable the “Opt Out of Ads Personalisation” or “Opt Out of Interest-Based Ads” setting.
