Cookie Policy

This Cookie Policy applies to my website (my “Site”). I take your privacy seriously when you are visiting my Site and will take great care to ensure your information is managed securely and lawfully.

When personal data is collected through my Site I will be transparent about how I will use it and why it needs to be collected. You can read my Privacy Policy for more information on this.

When you visit my Site, cookies are used to collect information so that your experience with the Site can be improved in the future.

What is a ‘Cookie’?

Cookies are used by most websites. They are not harmful, and they do not invade your privacy. They are small text files saved to your computer that store information about the way in which you have used a particular website. When you re-visit that website it will access the ‘cookie’ and tailor your use of that website based upon how you have used it in the past. Cookies may also be used for other legitimate purposes like marketing or analytics.

Types of Cookie

Broadly speaking there are two types of cookie; sessions cookies and persistent cookies. They each behave differently.

A persistent cookie is one that is saved as a text file on your PC and remains there even after you have closed your browser. It is then accessed again once you re-visit the same website. I use persistent cookies for Google Analytics. Persistent cookies are stored until they expire, which can range from several minutes to many years

A session cookie is a temporary file that is not saved permanently on your PC. It is created during your web session and is automatically deleted when you close your browser.

They may store some anonymised data but no personal data is ever stored by a session cookie. Session cookies exist for the duration of a visit and are erased when you close the web browser.

Categories of Cookie

The cookies I use on our Site can be grouped into the following categories:
