What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files which a website may place on your computer or device when you visit a site. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit. Web beacons, pixels or other similar files can also do the same thing. We use the term “cookies” in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.
Cookies serve many functions. For example, they can help us to remember your username and preferences, analyse how well our Site is performing, or allow us to recommend content we believe will be most relevant to you.
Purpose of cookies
We group our cookies into the below categories.
Operating our Site
Some cookies are essential for the operation of our Site. This includes cookies for the following purposes:
- Access – we use these cookies to identify customers access to their accounts.
- Performance – we use these cookies to monitor Site performance. This allows us to provide a high quality experience by quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise. For example, we might use performance cookies to track error messages, and to determine improvements to our Site.
Third party cookies on our Site
We also use third party cookies on our Site that fall into the categories above (“third party cookies”) for the following reasons:
- to help us monitor traffic on our site (like many companies, we use Google Analytics to do this);
- to assist with market research;
- to improve site functionality;
- to monitor compliance with our terms and conditions and copyright policy.
Use of pixels in emails via Mailchimp
We automatically place single pixel gifs, also known as web beacons, in every email sent via Mailchimp. These are tiny graphic files that contain unique identifiers that enable us to recognize when our subscribers have opened an email or clicked certain links. These technologies record each subscribers email address,
IP address, date, and time associated with each open and click for a campaign. Mailchimp uses this data to create reports for users like Sneaky Whiskers about how an email campaign performed and what actions subscribers took.
