This Cookies Policy relates to our website at www.enchanted-cottage.net content and services (collectively, the “Service”).
Cookies are widely used to allow online and mobile sites to function efficiently. A “cookie” is a small text file that (depending on your browser settings) is deposited on your computer, mobile phone, tablet or other smart device when you visit a site. The cookie may be sent back to that site when you visit again and may then be used by the server to identify and track your use of the site.
Cookies last for various durations. A “session cookie” is a temporary cookie that only remains in the cookie file of your browser until you leave a site. A “persistent” cookie is a long-term cookie that will be stored by your browser until its set expiry date (unless you delete it before the expiry date).
There are four widely recognized categories of cookie by function:
Essential cookies. These are necessary for the operation of a site (or part of a site), e.g. enabling a user to log into secure areas of a site or to use a shopping cart.
Functional cookies. These recognize you when you return to a site, allowing content to be personalized and preferences to be set.
Analytical cookies. These monitor site performance and analyses site traffic, gathering anonymous data.
Targeting cookies. These record your browsing history (such as visits to sites, pages visited and links followed) and use that information to make content and/or advertising displayed on a site more relevant to your interests. That process is often called “online behavioral advertising” (or “OBA” for short).
In this Cookies Policy, where the context allows, references to “cookies” include any tools that collect information from your device about your browsing activity.
In general, we use certain types of cookies:
to identify you as you use the Service (essential and functional cookies);
(where applicable) to help us authenticate you as a Member and/or Registered User and to give you access to your user profile (functional cookies);
to customize and personalize your experience of the Service (functional cookies); and
to compile anonymous statistics about the use of the Service (analytical cookies).
These cookies do not contain any information that, in itself, personally identifies you and do not provide us with access to the rest of your device. We may, however, associate the information contained in cookies with personal information that you have provided to us separately.
More particularly, here is a list of the main cookies that we use on the Service, and what each is used for.
