WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small pieces of information, stored by your web browser on your computer. They do things like keeping you logged in as you move around a website. Another example is carrying address and delivery details from page to page as you make an online purchase.
WHY ALL THE FUSS?
The EU is worried that some people may be misusing them and have created new regulations to prevent that.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on May 25th, 2018.
These new rules give users more rights over how their personal information is collected, stored and processed by website owners.
Personal information includes cookies that can give each website user a unique identifier number (UID). This means information like how often they visit and how long they spend on a website can be recorded. This information can be used – in combination with other personal information collected on a website – to identify a user.
Under the new law, websites using this type of cookie must clearly ask the user for permission to activate them. They must also allow the user to withdraw this consent at any time.
Our website does not use this kind of cookie.
Cookies aren’t bad; they’re a tool that has become essential to the waythe internet works. Of course, they can be used for nefarious purposes by unscrupulous websites but the same is true of many things available on the high street.
We want to play it safe and make sure our users are fully informed.
WHAT COOKIES DO WE USE?
We use one type of cookie:
Session cookies which only exist while you’re on the site. When you close the window and leave the site, your browser will delete them. These are used for things like logging you in to the site.
ASPSESSIONID (Session Cookie)
This is set by our web server. It allows the site to identify you from one page to another during your visit. Your experience on the site would be pretty poor without it. Its use is also essential to the website working correctly.
This cookie disappears when you close your browser. It doesn’t contain any personally identifiable information about you, just a random string of letters.
BUT I DON’T WANT TO ACCEPT ANY COOKIES
We hope that you’re reassured by this explanation of what cookies we use and why we do so. If you do wish to block cookies from any sites, you can do so by changing your browser settings. Below are links to the appropriate pages for the most popular browsers.
Internet Explorer 7 and 8
MORE ABOUT COOKIES
A quick search for “GDPR” or “EU cookie directive” will return a bewildering number of results. Below are a few sites we’ve found useful in our research. We’re not experts and we’re certainly not lawyers but we care about this stuff. After all, we use the internet too.
The EU GDPR website provides a user-friendly guide to the new regulations:
The Cookie Collective website is packed with useful information:
The Information Commissioner’s Office has the unenviable task of enforcing this law in the UK. Some good information but rather tedious reading:
