Cookie Policy

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that may be stored on your computer or mobile device that contains data related to a website you visit. It may allow a website to “remember” your actions or preferences over a period of time, or it may contain data related to the function or delivery of the site. Cookies can be set by the owner of the website or in some cases by third-party services the website owner allows to present other information, run content or provide other functionality such as Google Analytics.

How are they used on this site?

This site uses 2 different types of cookie:

Session Cookies
Persistent Cookies

Session Cookies are temporary cookies that are not persistently stored on your computer or mobile device. They are used to deliver basic functions of a website while you are actively using it. Session cookies are generally erased when you close your browser.

Persistent cookies are those placed on your computer or mobile device for a pre-determined length of time when you visit this site. This allows the site to deliver functions between browser sessions and subsequent visits. This site only places cookies that are specific to this site.

Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting (‘first party cookies’) or they may be set by other websites who run content on the page you are viewing (‘third party cookies’).

First party cookies

Cookies which are set by the website you are visiting.

Third party cookies

When you visit a page with content embedded from, for example, YouTube or Facebook or social media widgets like the Facebook ‘like’ button, these service providers may use their own cookies etc. I do not control the use of these cookies etc and cannot access them due to the way that these technologies work, as they can only be accessed by the party who originally set them. You should check the third party websites for more information about these cookies etc.

I use cookies to:

Help identify your computer so I can tailor your user experience (first party cookie).
Track the pages you visit via Google Analytics (third party cookie).
Embed social media content such as Facebook Like buttons (third party cookie).

Disabling Cookies

If you don’t want to receive cookies, you can modify your browser so that it notifies you when cookies are sent to it or you can refuse cookies altogether. You can also delete cookies that have already been set.

This website will work without cookies, but you will lose some features and functionality if you choose to disable cookies.

Further information on cookies and data protection are available from either the Data Protection Commissioner (Ireland).

Thank You.
