What is a Cookie?

This site uses cookies. A cookie is a small text based file given to you by a visited website that helps identify you to that site. Cookies are used to facilitate your visit as you navigate to different pages on a Website or return to the Website at a later time.
 

Anonymous Analytics Cookies

Some of the cookies we use are called ‘analytical’ cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the site when they’re using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example by making sure users are finding what they need easily. This information is anonymous (i.e. it cannot be used to identify you and does not contain personal information such as your name and email address) and it is only used for statistical purposes.
 

Functional Cookies

Another type of cookie that we use is called a functional cookie. This type of cookie is used to enhance the usage or individual experience you have on a website.  Functional cookies might be used to record any preferences you have made or items you have placed in a shopping cart, however they do not track your internet usage which could be used in turn for selling advertising.

We will never (and will not allow any third party to) use the statistical analytics tool to track or to collect any Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of visitors to our site. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Neither we nor Google will link an IP address with the identity of a computer user. We will not associate any data gathered from this site with any Personally Identifiable Information from any source, unless you explicitly submit that information via a fill-in form on our website.

These types of cookies usually store a session ID that is not personally identifiable to you, allowing you to move from page to page without having to log in repeatedly. These cookies will never be written onto your hard drive and do not collect any information from your computer.

Persistent Cookies

These type of cookies are called Persistent Cookies, and are not deleted when your browser is closed. These cookies are used to retain user preferences for the web site, allowing these preferences to be used in future browsing sessions. These cookies can be used to identify individual users, so they may be used by web sites to analyse users’ surfing behaviour within the web site. They can also be used to provide information about numbers of visitors, the average time spent on a page and generally the performance of the web site. They are usually configured to keep track of the users for a prolonged period of time, in some cases many years into the future. First Party Cookies are cookies that are associated with the host domain i.e maggiefurey.co.uk
