What are Cookies?
A cookie is a very small text file, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website that site’s server asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your computer’s memory specifically designed for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your preferences allow this but ,in order to protect your privacy, your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
Different types of cookies keep track of different activities. There are two types;
- Session cookies are used only when a person is actively navigating a website
- Persistent cookies which may be used to create long-term records of multiple visits to the same site. Authentication cookies track whether a user is logged in, and if so, under what name.
What are IP addresses
IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our web server as part of demographic and profile data known as ‘traffic data’ so that data, such as web page content, can be sent to you.
Our site uses website tracking technologies. These use “cookies” (see above) to help me analyse how people use the website. The information generated by the cookie and gathered in server logs, about your use of the website, may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at the website and the websites visited just before and after our own, your IP address and your location (often to the nearest town).
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.
My email marketing service, ConvertKit, uses email subscription forms on the website. They use “cookies” to analyse how you are using the website and for compiling reports for me to use so that I can send you relevant information and emails.
