  1. Cookies

What are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are downloaded onto a user’s computer (or device) when they visit a particular website. Each time the user visits that website it checks to see if the relevant file is on the user’s computer and uses the information to improve the user’s experience.

For example:

  • it recognises that the user has been to that website before and varies the content if applicable.
  • it remembers any preferences e.g., layout or colour schemes that the user set.
  • it remembers any log in details that the user entered so that the user does not need to log into every page.
  • it tracks which pages the user visits to try and keep content useful and interesting.

The Hollingworth website uses both “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies. We use session cookies to keep track of you whilst you navigate the Website. We use persistent cookies to enable our Website to recognise you when you visit and login to view secure content.

How do I find out more?
