What is a cookie?

A ‘cookie’ is a small piece of information, stored as a text file, which is placed on your computer hard drive. These files are attached by lots of websites that you visit. ‘Cookies’ allow us to analyse and improve upon your user experience of the website, for instance by remembering that you have visited before.

This policy refers to ‘cookies’ in four categories: Strictly Necessary Cookies, Performance Cookies, Functionality Cookies and Targeting Cookies. This categorisation has been defined by The International Chamber of Commerce (UK).

 

How does Doves Farm use Cookies?

We use ‘cookies’ to store basic information, like your customer account identification and previous products of interest. They are not used to store password details or credit card information.

 

Strictly Necessary Cookies:

The use of ‘cookies’ helps to support the structure of the pages which are displayed to you. These help the website to function correctly, and enhance the presentation of the website. They also help to improve the ease of use and navigation around the website, and allow you to return to pages you have previously visited. This type of ‘cookie’ is only active during your visit to the site, when you leave the website they are automatically deleted.

 

Performance Cookies:

‘Cookies’ are used to provide aggregated statistics on visitors to our website, and their browsing behaviour. This information may report on website hotspots, or frequently searched terms, for example. This enables us to develop elements of the site’s build, to improve the user experience. The data is aggregated and anonymised, which means we cannot identify you as an individual.

We use specific tools to carry out this analysis, including Google Analytics. To view their privacy policy, please visit: http://www.google.com/intl/en_ALL/policies/privacy/

 

Functionality Cookies:

We use ‘cookies’ to make our site more convenient, remembering usernames or email address, so you don’t have to. This information allows us to begin to personalise the website to cater to your personal preferences.

This ‘cookie’ will remain on your hard drive until you wish to remove it. If you choose to do this, you will be required to enter your details each time you visit the site. It is possible to view the website without providing personal information, but you will need to register an account with Doves Farm to enable us to process any order you make. An advantage of registering an account is that we can contact you about special offers and discounts from which you can benefit.

These are 3rd Party ‘cookies’ which are used for advertising.

We could use these ‘cookies’ to display products and services that we think might interest you, both on our website and others across the internet.
