Cookie Policy

A new EU wide law on the use of Cookies came into effect in the UK on 26 May 2012 and our website complies with that legislation.

What are Cookies?

Cookies are little pieces of information which pass between any website you are visiting and your computer, tablet or smartphone. They are very clever and can be used to record how long you spend on a webpage, what links you click, even your preference for page layouts and colour schemes. They can also be used to store data on what is in your ‘shopping cart’, or tailor the adverts you see online to reflect your interests.

Cookies on this website

This website uses Cookies with low / moderate level intrusiveness.

Google Analytics is a tool we use to provide information on the use of  the website.  For example, it tells us the number of visitors the site receives every day, where they have come from, what content they read as well as how long they spend on the site.  This helps us to understand use of the site and informs its development.  Google Analytics only provides aggregated data and does not collect personal information – so we cannot tell which individuals have visited the site or how they have made use of it.

Third party sites

In the content of this website, we post links to  other relevant organisations and information which we believe will be of help to you.  This website therefore provides links to other third party sites.  It is probable that these all use cookies.  Any third party site should provide you with information on their use of cookies which you may wish to review before further accessing the site.  Please note, none of these linked third party websites run cookies on the CK Food Safety Consultancy website.

Un-subscribing

It is possible to unsubscribe from the cookies we use although this may affect your experience of  the  website. Most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

Implied consent

Your continued use of this website is deemed to provide CK Food Safety Consultancy with your implied consent to the operation of the cookies on the site as detailed.

Monitoring

We will monitor the use of cookies on this website.  We use our best endeavour to ensure any listing are  kept up-to-date at all times but in the meantime please check periodically to see when the Privacy & Cookie Policy was last updated.
