What is a cookie?
A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the web browser on your computer’s hard disk so that the website can remember who you are.
A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number.
1. Session Cookies – these are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your web browser until you leave the site. These cookies allow you to carry information across pages of our site and avoid having to re-enter information. They are not stored on your computer and they are deleted when you terminate your browser session.
2. Persistent cookies – these remain in the cookie file of your browser for much longer (though how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie). These cookies remain in place across multiple visits to our site. They help us recognise you as a unique visitor (just a number) when you return to our website.
Glass Consultancy use an approved third party to help us to compile anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how users use our site and to help us improve the structure of our website. We cannot identify you personally in any way.
Some of our web pages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons (sometimes known as clear gifs) that allow us to count users who have visited these pages. Web beacons collect only limited information including a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the Web beacon resides.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying the settings in your browser. However, you may not be able to use all the interactive features of our site if cookies are disabled.
What can I do to manage cookies stored on my computer?
There are a number of ways to manage cookies. If you use different computers in different locations you will need to ensure that each browser is adjusted to suit your cookie preferences.
Some modern browsers have a feature that will analyse website privacy policies and allow a user to control their privacy needs. These are known as “P3P” features (Privacy Preferences Platform). Find further information on P3P.
