What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
Cookies set by the Website owner (in this case, Tillotts) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.
We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Website to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Website. Third parties serve cookies through our Website for analytics purposes. This is described in more detail below.
The specific types of first and third party cookies served through our Website and the purposes they perform are described in the table below:
|Types of cookie||Who serves these cookies|
|Essential website cookies: These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with services available through our Website and to use some of its features, such as access to secure areas.||https://www.tillotts.com/ – first party|
|Performance and functionality cookies: These cookies are used to enhance the performance and functionality of our Website but are non-essential to their use. However, without these cookies, certain functionality may become unavailable.||https://www.tillotts.com/ – first party|
|Analytics and customisation cookies: These cookies collect information that is used either in aggregate form to help us understand how our Website are being used or to help us customise our Website for you.
|https://www.google.com – third party|
Our Website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service by Google. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies,” text files which are stored on your computer and enable us to analyse how you use our website. The information generated by the Google Analytics Cookie about the use of the website is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. On this website, Google Analytics has been supplemented by the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” in order to guarantee anonymised collection of IP addresses (called IP masking). This serves to shorten your IP address in advance by Google within the EU/ European Economic Area.
Only in exceptional cases is the complete IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the Website, compile reports about website activities for the website operators and perform other services associated with the use of websites and the Internet.
The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not linked to any other data stored by Google.
