Like many websites, we make use of session cookies and persistent cookies, neither of which collect any personally identifiable information.
Session Cookies We use session cookies, which only last for the duration of your visit, to enable us to identify that the same person is moving from page to page. Session cookies are deleted the moment you close your browser. An example of how we use session cookies is when we maintain your shopping basket when you move from page to page on our site.
Persistent Cookies Some cookies we use are persistent, in that they remain on your computer even after you leave JHS (Joseph Hamilton & Seaton). These remain on your computer after you have visited our site, meaning the site can remember your settings for when you return. Another reason we use persistent cookies is to help us record visitor trends over time which helps us monitor traffic are what parts of the website are more popular than others.
3rd Party Cookies From time to time we will embed 3rd party content onto our site which may also use various cookies. These include sites such as Facebook and Twitter, whose cookie usage policy you can view on their own websites. Below is a list of the main cookies we use, and what we use them for.
ASP.NET_SessionId cookie This cookie allows our web servers to respond to your actions on the website such as "Add to basket" or browsing the website. The website wouldn't work for you without it.
Google AnalyticsGoogle Analytics allows us to track how popular our site is and to record visitor trends over time. Google Analytics uses a cookie to help track which pages are accessed.
The cookie contains no personally identifiable information, but it does use your IP address to determine where in the world you are accessing the site from, and to track page visits within the site.
You have a number of options when it comes to receiving cookies. You can set your browser either to reject all cookies, to allow only ‘trusted’ sites to send them, or to accept only those cookies from websites you are currently using.
We recommend that you don’t block all cookies because parts of our website rely on them to work properly.
