What is a cookie?
Cookies are small text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device.
This page describes what information they gather, how we use that information and why we sometimes need to store these cookies. The cookies used on the Wine Chat website have been categorised based on the categories found in the ICC UK Cookie guide.
Strictly necessary cookies
Strictly necessary cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features. Without these cookies services you have asked for may not be provided.
Performance cookies collect information about how you use our website – for instance, which pages you visit and how long you spend on site. This data may be used to help optimise our website, make it easier for you to navigate and help Wine Chat continue to produce engaging and relevant content. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies you. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous.
Wine Chat use Google Analytics cookies to track visits to the site and to individual web pages. This information, which is all anonymised, is stored by Google and enables us, using Google Analytics, to check the relative popularity of different areas of our website. Google Analytics is one of the most widespread and trusted analytics solutions on the internet for helping website owners better understand how you use our website and discover ways that we can improve your experience.
Functionality cookies allow our website to remember choices you make while browsing. For instance, we may store your geographic location in a cookie to ensure that we show you our website localised for your area. We may also remember preferences such as text size, fonts, and other customisable site elements. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect will not personally identify you, and they cannot track your browsing activity on non-Wine Chat websites.
