Your Social Insights Cookie Policy

Here is a quick guide to cookies and how they are used on Your Social Insights Limited websites. Please also refer to our Privacy Policy which sets out details of the cookies that are used by us on this website.

If you choose to continue to browse our site, we will assume that you are happy with our use of cookies and will continue to use them throughout your visit.


1. What is a Cookie?

Cookies are small files that websites put on your computer hard disk drive when you first visit. Cookies can include the name of the website, the duration of the cookie (how long it will remain on your hard drive) and a unique identifier, which is normally a randomly generated number.


2. How are Cookies used?

Session Management: Generally Cookies are used to recognise visitors when they return, to store preferences to improve the visitor experience. An example of this is a site using cookies to save your shopping basket when you return to the website.

Personalisation: Cookies can be used to remember information about a user in order to show relevant information in the future.

Tracking: Tracking cookies can be used to track user habits when browsing, cookies can be sent by the browser for each page visited on a site in order to create a log file. It is then possible to find out which pages a user has visited and in what sequence.


3. Types of Cookie

Session cookies - temporary cookies are stored on your hard drive for as long as you are on a website. When you close your browser and end your session the cookie is deleted. Session cookies can be used for Session Management.

Persistent cookies - Long-term cookies that remain on your computer after you've closed your browser. How long they stay on your computer changes from cookie to cookie, but it's usually 30 days. Like session cookies, persistent cookies are also used to remember things from when you've been browsing, but because they're still on your computer after you've left a website, they can be used to make sure that when you return what you're seeing is relevant to you e.g. clothes like those you may have looked at previously or grocery items you may have bought before.

Third party cookies - cookies that are set by or whose information is sent back to a website that is different to the one you're viewing. Advertisers often show adverts on sites that are not their own and use cookies to find out when people are viewing and clicking on those ads.

For the most part, the use of cookies is intended to improve a visitors experience of a website, either by remembering personal preferences or collecting anonymous statistics that, when analysed, can be used to improve your experience.
