This page describes the Howgill Family Centre cookie policy, which applies to this website. If you do not accept this Cookie Policy please do not use this site.


What are cookies?


For almost any modern website to work properly, it needs to collect certain basic information on its users. To do this, a site will create files known as cookies – which are small text files – on its users’ computers. These cookies are designed to allow the website to recognise its users on subsequent visits, or to authorise other designated websites to recognise these users for a particular purpose.


Cookies do a lot of different jobs which make your experience of the Internet much smoother and more interactive. They also help ensure that the advertisements that you see online are more relevant to you and your interests. Much, though not all, of the data that they collect is anonymous, though some of it is designed to detect browsing patterns and approximate geographical location to improve user experience.


Some of our pages may also contain images called ‘web beacons’ which allow us to count visitors. Web beacons only collect limited information, including a cookie number, a timestamp, and a record of the page on which they are placed. We may also carry web beacons placed by third party advertisers. These beacons do not carry any personally identifiable information and are only used to track the effectiveness of a particular campaign. Information collected by cookies and web beacons is not personally identifiable.


What types of cookie are there?


Broadly speaking, there are four types of cookie: strictly necessary cookies, performance cookies, functionality cookies and targeting or advertising cookies.



Additionally, these cookies break down into two further sub-types.



What’s the law?


Recently, the law on cookies has changed. Now sites that try to place performance, functionality, and targeting and advertising cookies need your permission for before they can place them onto your computer.


How does the Howgil Family Centre use cookies?
