What are cookies?

The most common type of cookie is a delicious biscuit that’s easy to make at home. However, the word cookie is a website term for small text files that are stored by your web browser (eg Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Apple Safari and Mozilla Firefox). They are placed on your computer’s hard drive or mobile phone. The Nutritious Lolly website uses cookies to store information about you so that your browsing experience is more enjoyable. It’s so that our site can recognise who you are and respond appropriately.

Are there different types of cookies?

Yes, there are chocolate chip and caramel cookies to name just two. In website speak there are also different types of cookies – ‘session’ cookies and ‘persistent’ cookies and the Nutritious Lolly website, like many websites, uses both. Session cookies are temporary cookies that expire when you close your browser. Persistent cookies have a longer expiration date and stay on your computer hard-drive until you manually delete them.

So, what do persistent cookies do?

One example of a persistent cookie is the ‘remember me on this computer functionality’ which means you can access the private area of a website again from your own PC or mobile, without logging-in again. The session cookies and persistent cookies placed on our website by us are known for this reason are ‘first party cookies.’

What about third party cookies?

The cookies made by Nutritious Lolly are so delicious they won’t last for one party never mind three! However, if it’s website speak you’re after here you go. ‘Third party cookies’ are used by other companies such as analytics firms like Google who will use them to gather information about you. Now don’t panic, this isn’t personal information which we retain under our Privacy Policy. It’s more to do with the habits you display and the websites you browse. An example of this is when you’ve been looking at a travel website then you leave it to visit another website with a totally different subject matter. Yet, you see ads appearing about package holidays. This is called advertising behavioural targeting and its down to third-party cookies. Some people love it and some people don’t so it’s down purely to individual choice.

Can I choose not to have cookies on my computer?

Nothing beats a good cookie and a warm mug of something while you’re browsing. If you mean website cookies then yes, you can choose not to have them by law. When you first view a website you should be informed that the website uses cookies and if you wish to accept them. Our website does not insist that you accept cookies but if you reject them certain products, offers, or features may be limited.  To switch off cookies you can go to the help section of your browser and it will explain how to turn them off. Here are some of the most common browsers and the information you need. These links will also explain how you can turn off behavioural ad targeting should you wish to do so.
