What are Cookies?
Cookies are small text files that websites can send to your computer, tablet or mobile phone of those who visit websites. A cookie can be thought of as an internet user's ID card, which tells a website when the user has returned to their site.These text files allow a website to remember your device and how you interacted with the website, which is useful for a number of different purposes. They only contain and transfer to the website as much information as the users themselves have disclosed to that website.
Cookies make the interaction between you as a user and the websites you visit a lot faster and easier. Without cookies, it would be very hard for a website to allow a visitor to log into their account or fill up a shopping basket or to remember the user's preferences or registration details for a future visit. Without them, we wouldn't be able to evaluate our audience's size and usage pattern in order to make our website as user friendly as possible. The European Union Directive on Privacy and Electronic Communications (the "Directive") and its subsequent amendments, recognise that cookies are a "legitimate and useful tool" for many activities, including verifying the identity of website users.
The use of our site constitutes your consent to accept these cookies and data collection, however you can set your internet browser to reject all cookies, or to notify you when a cookie is set, should you wish. You can consult the Help section of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
[Insert Company Name Here] uses Google Analytics to track usage statistics to help us improve our website experience. We do not share any data that would allow Google to personally identify an individual customer or client, or data that permanently identifies a particular device - don't worry, it's Google. It's all very normal, we just thought we would let you know!
We also allow Facebook to set cookies on our website which allows our advertisements to be tailored to you and you may see these when on their platform.
