EU Cookie Law
A law Privacy law introduced in May 2011, partially focused on cookies, demands that you, as a website user, are given the opportunity to understand how cookies are used on our websites and consent to cookies being stored on your computer (laptop/mobile/tablet/other device).
What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a small text file, typically of letters and numbers, downloaded to your browser when you access websites. Typically, they contain the following information: a site name and unique user ID, the duration of the cookie’s abilities and effects, and a random number. As a rule, cookies cannot be used to reveal your identity or personally identifying information.
Generally, the role of cookies is beneficial, making your interaction with frequently-visited sites smoother with no extra effort on your part. Without cookies, online shopping would be much harder. Without cookies, some websites will become less interactive with the cookie option turned off.
Most Common Cookies
These cookies expire when you close your web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome etc.). These cookies are used for various reasons, for example, remembering what you have put in your shopping basket as you browse a website. They can also be used for security to access your Internet banking or email.
These cookies are still stored on your browser after you have closed it, which allows your preferences on websites to be remembered. These cookies are used for a variety of purposes, for example, remembering your preferences on a website (your language choice or your user name on a particular website).
First and Third Party cookies
This refers to the website placing the cookie. First party cookies are cookies set by the website you are visiting. Third party cookies are set by another website; the website you are visiting may have advertising on the page and this other website will be able to set a cookie on your computer. Third party cookies on the main web browsers allow third party cookies by default. Changing the settings on your browsers can prevent this.
There are some exemptions to the above where it is essential for a website to store information on your computer, for example, to provide a service to you that you have specifically requested. The most common of these would be a shopping basket or a ‘keep me logged in’ option – these both require cookies to function.
We have partners who have referred clients and in using cookies, we track referred enquiries so we can compensate our partners accordingly;
These cookies do not store any personal or identifying information
