Description of cookies
The list below is designed to provide more information about the cookies we use and why:
Web analysis with Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “anonymizeIP()”, IP addresses being truncated before further processing in order to rule out direct associations to persons.
How to turn off cookies
If you do not want to accept cookies, you can change your browser settings so that cookies are not accepted. If you do this, please be aware that you may lose some of the functionality of this website. For further information about cookies and how to disable them please go to: www.aboutcookies.org or www.allaboutcookies.org.
It may not always be the case that internet protocol (‘IP’) addresses can identify individuals. Many IP addresses are dynamic (ie they change each time a user connects to his internet service provider) which means that it is very difficult to identify an individual from the collection of dynamic IP addresses in the absence of other information. However, the same is not the case for static IP addresses which can be linked to specific computers and, possibly, to individual users. Static IP addresses used to create profiles may be personal data if, together with other information, they can identify individual users.
Consent–option 1 (browser settings)
Consent–option 2 (notification on home page)
For this option to be effective it is important to make the notice as clear as possible on the webpage. This option may not be effective where the home page is not the only landing page, since users may access the site via other pages and thereby miss the notice on the home page. This issue can be remedied by having the notice appear on every page (until such time as a box is ticked to indicate that the user has seen it and then it disappears), but this practice can be intrusive and annoying to users, especially if the notification is large.
Description of cookies
The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003, SI 2003/2426 do not specify the type of information that should be provided to users. The inclusion of a table with information about cookies is one option, but it is not obligatory. The requirement is for the organisation setting the cookie to provide a sufficiently full and intelligible description of the cookies used so that users can understand what it means for them to accept the cookies. The table should not be populated with technical information that would be meaningless to the user.
