Introduction

This policy sets out how the website available at www.culford.co.uk and www.culfordonline.co.uk  use cookies.

What is a cookie?

When we provide services we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. These services are delivered on the internet, which sometimes involves placing small amounts of information as files on your computer, mobile phone or other device. These small files are known as cookies. Certain cookies contain a limited amount of personal information. For example, if you click “remember me” when logging in, a cookie will store your username (which could be, for example, your email address). However, most cookies used on our Websites will not collect information that identifies you, and will instead collect more general information to help us analyse how well our Websites are performing so we can improve them:

  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested;
  • measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure that they are fast;
  • analysing anonymised data to help us understand how people interact with our services so that we can make them better.

How to Manage Cookies

  • You can manage these small files and learn more about them from the article Internet Browser cookies- what they are and how to manage them.
  • Learn how to remove cookies set on your device

There are two types of cookie you may encounter when using our websites:

First party cookies: these are our own cookies, controlled by us and used to provide information about usage of our site.

Third party cookies: these are cookies found in other companies’ internet tools which we are using to enhance our site, for example Facebook or Twitter have their own cookies, which are controlled by them.
