What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website to recognise your device the next time you visit. Web beacons 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.
There are many functions cookies serve. For example, they can help us to remember your preferences, analyse how well our website is performing or track what’s in your shopping basket.
Certain cookies contain personal information – for example, if you click to ‘remember me’ when logging in to a site, a cookie will store your username. Most cookies won’t collect information that identifies you, and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our websites, or a user’s general location.
You can disable the cookies that are stored on your computer or device, but that may prevent our website from functioning properly.
What sort of cookies does the Shaan White Hypnotherapy website use?
Generally, our cookies perform up to three different functions:
1. Performance Cookies
We utilise other cookies to analyse how our visitors use our websites and to monitor website performance. This allows us to provide a high quality experience by customising our offering and quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise. For example, we might use performance cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages. We might also use these cookies to highlight site services that we think will be of interest to you based on your usage of the website.
2. Functionality Cookies
We use functionality cookies to allow us to remember your preferences; i.e. saving you the trouble of typing in your username every time you access the ‘buy now’ facility. We also use functionality cookies to provide you with enhanced services such as allowing you to watch a video online or comment on a blog.
3. Marketing Cookies
Marketing cookies allow us to promote our services to you from other websites once you’ve visited our site. If you would like to learn more about how advertisers use these types of cookies or to choose not to receive them, please visit www.youronlinechoices.eu (or http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ if you are based in the United States).
We also use or allow third parties to serve cookies that fall into the three categories above. For example, like many companies, we use Google Analytics to help us monitor our website traffic. We may also use third party cookies to help us with market research, revenue tracking, improving site functionality and monitoring compliance with our terms and conditions and copyright policy.
