Cookies' are small text files that are placed on a user's computer hard drive by a website. There are several types of cookie and the most common are often referred to as 'session' cookies. These are used to keep track of information needed by a user as they travel from page to page within a website. These cookies have a short lifetime and expire within a few minutes of the user leaving the site.
Other types of cookies can be used to track internet activity after the user has left L&LS website. These are either sponsored by organisations external to the website being visited (known as 'third party' cookies) or can originate from the website organisation itself ('first party' cookies). These usually have a long lifetime with several months being quite common. They are 'harvested' and 'refreshed' whenever the user visits a page where the same or a similar cookie is being used. These are often used for delivering adverts that are more likely to be relevant to you. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. L&LCS's websites (www.LeedsLiverpoolCanalSociety.co.uk) do not use third party cookies, but we do use advertising cookies to:
- Identify that you have visited L&LCS’s website, so that we can show you relevant information from L&LCS.
- Provide Google’s advertising network with information on your visit so that Google can present you with adverts that you may be interested in.
By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
