What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer or mobile device.  They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work in a better, more efficient way.  They can do this because websites can read and write these files, enabling them to recognise you and remember important information that will make your use of a website more convenient (for example by remembering preference settings).

Below we list the different types of cookies that may be used on the Site. Note that to the extent information collected through cookies constitutes personal information, the provisions in the Privacy Policy  www.rolysfudge.co.uk/privacy-policy apply and complement this Cookie Policy.

Essential Cookies.  Essential cookies are necessary for the Site to work and enable you to move around it and to use its services and features.  Without these absolutely necessary cookies, the Site will not perform as smoothly for you as we would like it to and we may not be able to provide the Site or certain services or features you request.

These can be accepted/refused via your browser settings.

Preference Cookies.  Preference cookies collect information about your choices and preferences, and allow us to remember local settings and customise the Site accordingly. The main one in use is mobile cookies (If the user is viewing the Site on a mobile device, a cookie is set to indicate that it is a mobile device or whether deskop view is selected) and can be accepted/refused via the browser setting.

Social Plug-in Tracking Cookies.  We have a Facebook and Twitter feed on the news page (these cookies are used to track Facebook/Twitter members for market research analytics and product development) and this cookie can be accepted/refused via the browser setting. The cookies aren’t in place until you visit this webpage.

Analytics Cookies.  Analytics cookies collect information about your use of the Site, and enable us to improve the way it works.  For example, analytics cookies show us which are the most frequently visited pages on the Site, help us record any difficulties you have with the Site, and show us whether our advertising is effective or not.  This allows us to see the overall patterns of usage on the Site, rather than the usage of a single person. For this, we use Google analytics. Google analytics cookies collect aggregate statistical data to improve Site presentation and navigation.  Google supplements the aggregate data with demographics and interest information, so that we can better understand our visitors. Information collected can be accessed on Google analytics such as your country and IP address so we can see where website visitors are coming from. You can deactivate this by going to: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
