Use of Cookies and other technologies

This Notice lays out how and why we use cookies on the LSHW site and offers resources that will allow you to make an informed decision regarding the acceptance, rejection or deletion of any cookies that we use.

By using our website, you consent to our use of cookies, so we recommend that you read through the information below. This cookies policy may change at any time, so please check it regularly.

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers which often includes an anonymised, unique identifier. This means that it can be used to identify you without revealing your personal information. When you visit a website, it asks permission to store a cookie in the cookies section of your hard drive. Cookies are widely used on the internet to make websites work, to make them work more efficiently, or to provide information about your usage of the site to the site owner or other third parties. For example, if you add items to a shopping basket, a cookie allows the website to remember what items you’re buying, or if you log in to a website, a cookie may recognise you later on so that you do not have to put in your password again.

How do we use cookies?

We use cookies to improve the way our website works.  We also use third-party cookies set by Google Analytics to review our site functionality, and by Google AdWords to improve our online marketing efforts.

Third-party cookies

A third-party cookie is one that is associated with a different domain or website than the one that you visit. For example, on this site, we use third-party cookies built by Google to enable website analytics, but as our site is not on the Google domain, this makes their cookies “third-party” cookies. The Google Analytics cookie will recognise and count the number of people who visit our site, as well as providing other information such as how long visitors stay, where they move to on our site, and what pages receive the most visits. We cannot directly control how Google cookies behave.
