WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small text files that a website may put on your computer, or mobile device when you first visit that site or one of its pages.
There are many functions that a cookie can serve. For example, a cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit it. UKWorkshop uses the term “cookies” in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.
Certain cookies contain personal information – for example, if you click on “remember me” when logging on, a cookie will store your username. Most cookies will not collect information that identifies you, but will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use UKWorkshop, or a user’s general location.
WHAT SORT OF COOKIES DOES UKWorkshop USE?
Cookies can perform several different functions:
1. Necessary Cookies
Some cookies are essential for the operation of UKWorkshop. These cookies enable services you have specifically asked for.
2. Performance Cookies
These cookies may collect anonymous information on the pages visited. For example, we might use performance cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages.
3. Functionality Cookies
These cookies remember choices you make to improve your experience.
UKWorkshop may also allow third parties to serve cookies that fall into any of the categories above. For example, like many sites, we may use Google Analytics to help us monitor our website traffic.
