EU Web-Cookie Rules
In 2002 a European directive (Directive 2002/58/EC), set guidelines on how websites can collect user information and how that information can be used. This directive requires websites to provide clear information on web-cookies, how a site intends to use them and also requires that sites first receive permission to use web-cookies from a user before collecting data from them.
How We Comply
To comply with these regulations we have assessed all web-cookies and tracking technologies used on this site such that we can freely provided information about them as to whether they are temporary or permanent and if they are first or third party web-cookies.
With these web-cookies we make sure to make clear how we will use these web-cookies so that users can understand how our usage of this information relates to a users own expectations of how their browsing data will be used.
Further to specific information about the web-cookies we use and how we use them, we aim to provide users sufficient information about current data privacy rules, in particular to the relevant EU directive so that users can be better informed about how our policy fits into regulations.
With all this information provided, we have then decided on how to offer this information to users and then request their decision on whether to allow consent to have web-cookies about their browsing stored. We aim to do this in as unobtrusive way as possible so as to affect as little as possible the on-site user experience.
What are web-cookies?
A web-cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed onto your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the web-cookie helps examine web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site.
Essentially, web-cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
In order to provide the best application experience, an implied consent content strategy is used in order to minimize the hindrance of the user experience whilst still allowing them a clear and easy way to confirm their consent or opt out if they so wish. As no personal data is collected or otherwise shared, a single tier web-cookie opt out system is used as any information that is collected is only used to better improve the functionality of the website, for example, for use in collecting data for Google Analytics.
