Cookie Policy 

This website (the “Site”) uses cookies. This policy helps to explain when, how and why we use cookies, and how you can block and delete them. 

WHAT ARE COOKIES AND HOW DO THEY WORK?

A cookie is a simple text file that a website saves onto your device via your web browser. It will typically contain information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers.

Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting (first party cookies) or they may be set by third parties who run content on the page you are viewing (third party cookies).

Most websites you visit will use cookies in order to improve your user experience by enabling that website to remember you, either for the duration of your visit (using a session cookie) or for repeat visits (using a persistent cookie).

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, storing your preferences, and generally improving your experience of a website. Cookies can make the interaction between you and the website faster and easier. If a website doesn’t use cookies, it will think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site – for example, when you enter your login details and move to another page it won’t recognize you and it won’t be able to keep you logged in.

Other technologies, including data we store on your web browser or device, identifiers associated with your device, and other software, are used for similar purposes. In this policy, we refer to all of these technologies as “cookies”.

THE USE OF COOKIES ON THIS SITE: YOUR CHOICES

Unless the cookie is strictly necessary, it is possible to modify your browser so that it notifies you when cookies are sent to it or you can refuse cookies altogether. The Help function within your browser should tell you how.  You can also delete cookies that have already been set, although, please remember that if you do this then parts of our website may not work.

Alternatively, you may wish to visit www.aboutcookies.org, which contains comprehensive information on how to do this on a wide variety of desktop browsers.

Some cookies used on the Site may collect personal information about you.  Any personal information that we collect will be used in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

THE COOKIES THAT WE USE, AND WHY

Cookies enable us to identify your device, or you when you have logged in. We use cookies that are strictly necessary to enable you to move around the Site or to provide certain basic features. We use cookies to enhance the functionality of the Site by storing your preferences, for example. We also use cookies to help us to improve the performance of our Site to provide you with a better user experience. Unless we are required to do so by law, we do not share information collected by cookies with third parties except Google Analytics, which we use to operate, customize and improve our websites. We never sell the information collected by cookies.

The tables below explain what cookies we use on our Site, why we use them and whether they are functionality or performance related cookies. We also state whether a cookie is a persistent or session cookie.

NECESSARY COOKIES

These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our website.

FUNCTIONALITY COOKIES

Functionality cookies record information about choices you’ve made and allow us to tailor the website to you. These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your log in details) and customized preference settings (e.g. text size). We use a functionality cookie to store the information you provide when you tell us that you are of legal age to drink alcohol in your country.  This cookie is named “agegate” and will be stored on your machine for a period of 14 days before it expires.  Using this cookie means that we do not need to ask your date of birth every time you visit the Site. 

These cookies may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or using a map, which is what we use them for on our website. 

PERFORMANCE COOKIES 

We use "performance" cookies to analyse your visiting patterns on our Site and other trends and statistics regarding your use of our Site and the sites from which you visited us (referrers).  Using these helps us deliver the best web experience for you and to understand what our readers are looking at so that we can produce more of the right kind of content.

_utma

Purpose

This cookie is what’s called a “persistent” cookie, as in, it never expires (technically, it does expire…in the year 2038…but for the sake of explanation, let’s pretend that it never expires, ever). This cookie keeps track of the number of times a visitor has been to the site pertaining to the cookie, when their first visit was, and when their last visit occurred. Google Analytics uses the information from this cookie to calculate things like Days and Visits.

Name

_utmb and _utmc

Purpose

The B and C cookies are brothers, working together to calculate how long a visit takes. __utmb takes a timestamp of the exact moment in time when a visitor enters a site, while __utmc takes a timestamp of the exact moment in time when a visitor leaves a site. __utmb expires at the end of the session. __utmc waits 30 minutes, and then it expires. You see, __utmc has no way of knowing when a user closes their browser or leaves a website, so it waits 30 minutes for another pageview to happen, and if it doesn’t, it expires.

_utmt

Purpose

If you are making use of the user-defined report in Google Analytics, and have coded something on your site for some custom segmentation, the __utmv cookie gets set on the person’s computer, so that Google Analytics knows how to classify that visitor. The __utmv cookie is also a persistent, lifetime cookie.

It expires in 15,768,000 seconds – or, in 6 months. This cookie is how Google Analytics knows to whom and to what source / medium / keyword to assign the credit for a Goal Conversion or an Ecommerce Transaction. __utmz also lets you edit its length with a simple customization to the Google Analytics Tracking code.
