What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit. We use the term “cookies” in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.
There are many functions cookies serve. For example, they can help us to remember your username and preferences, analyse how well our website is performing, or even allow us to recommend content we believe will be most relevant to you.
Most cookies won’t collect information that identifies you, and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our website, or a user’s general location.
What sort of cookies does the House of care website use?
Generally, our cookies perform two different functions:
1. Performance Cookies
We utilise other cookies to analyse how our visitors use our websites and to monitor website performance.
This allows us to provide a high quality experience by customising our offering and quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise.
For example, we might use performance cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages.
2. Third Party Cookies
We also use or allow third parties to serve cookies that fall into the category above. For example, like many companies, we use analytics to help us monitor our website traffic.
