1. What are cookies
1.2 A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your device if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive or mobile device to store and sometimes track information about you. They are a useful tool as, by recording the way you use our site, they enable us to get to know you better. For example, we’re able to recognise you when you return to the site, identify your preferences so as to provide you with a more personalised service and speed up searches that you conduct when visiting.
2. Types of cookies
2.1 La Fosse may use the following types of cookies:
2.1.1 Strictly necessary cookies: these are cookies that are required for the operation of our site and include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our site. These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, services you have asked for, like registering for job alerts, cannot be provided.
2.1.2 Analytical or performance cookies: these types of cookies allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our site when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our site works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
2.1.3 Functionality cookies: these cookies are used to recognise you when you return to our site and allow our site to remember choices you make (such as your username and password) and provide enhanced, more personal features. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
2.1.4 Targeting cookies: these cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They record your visit to our site, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed and are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisations.
2.2 Generally, the strictly necessary cookies and some performance and functionality cookies expire when you close the site: these are known as ‘session cookies’. The functionality cookies and some targeting and performance cookies will last for a longer period of time: these are known as ‘persistent cookies’.
2.3 If you share our content through social media, for example by liking us on Facebook, following or tweeting about us on Twitter, those social networks will record that you have done so and may set a cookie for this purpose.
2.4 In some cases, where a page on our website includes content from a social network, such as a Twitter feed, or Facebook comments box, those services may set a cookie even where you do not click a button. As is the case for all cookies, we cannot access those set by social networks, just as those social networks cannot access cookies we set ourselves.
2.5 Our systems automatically gather some anonymous information about visitors, including IP addresses, browser type, language, and the times and dates of webpage visits. The data collected does not include personally information and is used, as described above, for statistical analysis, to understand user behaviour, and to administer the site.
