Why is this page on my website?
From May 2012, all websites must comply with ‘The Information Commissioners Office‘, guidelines on EU law governing how ‘Cookie info’, is used on websites.
The guidelines, set by the EU, mean visitors must be told what cookies are being placed on their machine.
What is cookie info?
A cookie info is a small file that may be placed on your computer or mobile device, when you visit my website.
There are two broad categories of cookies:
Persistent and Session Cookies.
Persistent cookies – Persistent cookie info remain on your computer, until deleted manually or automatically.
Session cookies – Session cookies remain on your device until you close your browser, when they are automatically deleted.
Cookies I use and why I use them:
Essential cookies – Essential cookies are technical cookies, that are required for the operation of my website.
Without essential cookies, my website cannot operate properly. Essential cookies include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into our client area.
Performance cookies – Performance cookies allow me to count the number of visitors to my website, and to see how visitors move around it, and what they view.
This helps me to improve the way my website works, by enabling me to modify the website to the way visitors use it.
The information I collect from performance cookies is aggregated, which means that I cannot identify you from it.
Experience cookies – Experience cookies allow my website to remember the choices you make.
This is only used in my client area.
However, if you do so you may not be able to access all or parts of my site.
If you carry on using my site and do not change your browser settings I will assume you consent to me using and collecting cookie info as described above.
So that’s all the legal EU nonsense out-of-the-way, thanks for taking the time to read all the blurb, I hope it hasn’t spoilt your visit to my website.
