Cookies

Our websites use a number of different cookies. Below we explain the cookies we use and why we use them.

What is a cookie?
Cookies are pieces of computer code which are stored on your computer which let us know that you have visited our website. These cookies do not contain any personal information.

There are two broad categories of cookies:

Persistent cookies: Persistent cookies remain on your device until deleted manually or automatically.

Session cookies: Session cookies remain on your device until you close your browser when they are automatically deleted.

What do we use cookies for?

1. Improving our website – Google Analytics:

Google Analytics is a simple, easy-to-use tool that helps website owners measure how users interact with website content. As a user navigates between web pages, Google Analytics provides website owners JavaScript tags (libraries) to record information about the page a user has seen, for example the URL of the page. The Google Analytics JavaScript libraries use HTTP Cookies to “remember” what a user has done on previous pages/interactions with the website. For statistical purposes only, we track how many unique visitors we receive and how often they visit our website. We collect anonymous data which tells us which of our pages are most frequently visited, by which type of user and from which country. This allows us to see which content is most popular. In order to do this, we use a web analytics tool called Google Analytics. The following cookies will be set every time you visit our site:

  • _utma (set to expire every two years)
  • _utmb (set to expire every thirty minutes)
  • _utmc (will expire when you close your browser)
  • _utmz (set to expire every two years)

The above four cookies allow us to use the Google Analytics reporting tool to count visits to our website and therefore improve it. They will expire as indicated unless you clear your cookies via your browser or third party application.

Each one of the above four cookies is set for every single page of this site. So it does not matter which page you arrive at the site, those cookies will still be set automatically. These cookies do not store any personal identifiable information about a visitor.

2. Blog Commenting Functions

When visitors comment on our blog, they too get cookies stored on their computer. This is purely a convenience, so that the visitor won’t need to re-type all their information again when they want to leave another comment. Three cookies are set for commenters:

  • comment_author
  • comment_author_email
  • comment_author_url

If you do not want these cookies to be set on your computer then all you have to do is not leave a comment on this site as they are not set as default. This is part of the WordPress standard setup. If you would like to find out more about the cookies that an installation of WordPress uses you can follow the link below:

This site does not allow visitors to register for commenting accounts or article writing/submitting accounts and all content and comments are moderated by Libris Systems.

Your right to refuse cookies and what happens if you refuse them:

You can refuse cookies by activating the relevant setting on your browser. However, if you do so you may not be able to access all or parts of our sites. If you carry on using our sites and do not change your browser settings we will assume you consent to us using cookies as described above.

How can you manage your cookies?

Browser settings: Most browsers can be altered to prevent your computer from accepting cookies, although this may mean that some of the features of this site (and many other sites) will not work properly and may restrict your user experience.

These settings will typically be found in the ‘options’ or ‘preferences’ menu of your browser. In order to understand these settings, the following links may be helpful, otherwise you should use the ‘Help’ option in your browser for more details.


Mobile Devices

Most mobile devices now support the use of cookies so please refer to your mobile device manual, and choice of mobile browser manual to learn how to turn the use of cookies on or off. You may also want to refer to your mobile device operating system manual as most mobile device operating systems are completely different to the computer based systems.

Public Computer Devices

Please bare in mind that most public computer based systems have custom network security settings established. If you are not sure what is being allowed and what is not then speak to the service provider regards the security of your online browsing habits and potential personal information. Some organisations keep a log of user activity when using their systems so again, ask about the privacy and cookie policies of the potential services you are currently or potentially going to use.

Turn off anonymous Google Analytics cookies:

You can install a Google Analytics browser “plug in” to prevent most websites from sending information about your visit to Google Analytics. More information about this can be found below.
