Cookies

When we think about cookies, we usually conger up images small rounded delicious chocolatey filled biscuits, but sadly in the realms of internet technology we find ourselves thinking of files which are placed within our website to identify your computer as you view different pages on our website.

One of the benefits of Cookies is that they enable our setting to identify how many people have visited our website and for what purpose. This information feeds into our planning and allows us to analyse web traffic, identify who is signed into the site, what pages are being visited as well as recognise when you return to our site. The Cookies will also store the information and the preferences of each user again presenting interesting facts, likes and interests of the individual visiting.
