Cookie Policy

This is the Cookie Policy for Balquhidder Braes.

 

What Are Cookies

A cookie is a simple text file used to allow a website to remember you as you move between pages of a website (a session cookie) or when you return to a website you have previously visited (a persistent cookie). Cookies are used to perform lots of different tasks such as storing your preferences, remembering what is in your shopping basket and improving your experience of a website. When a website doesn't use cookies it will not recognise you and treat you as a new user each time you visit and between pages - for example when you want to visit the checkout from your shopping basket without cookies the website won't be able to 'remember' what you had in your basket.

 

Cookies are unique to your web browser, they are simple text files and typically contain a unique identifier and some text or numbers which allow a website to remember you. Cookies cannot change settings on your computer or pass on any malware or viruses, they can only store plain text.

 

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