PRIVACY & COOKIES

Foot Anstey understand that privacy is important to you and are committed to being transparent about the technology it uses.   This Cookies Policy explains how and why we use cookies, pixels and tags and other technologies that may be stored on and accessed from your device when you use or visit any website that posts a link to this policy.  This policy should be read together with our Privacy Policy.

WHat ARE COOKIES AND WHY DO WE USE THEM?

When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies, pixels and tags.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • Enabling a service to recognise your device so you don't have to give the same information several times during one task;
  • Recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don't need to do it for every web page requested;
  • Measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there's enough capacity to ensure they are fast.

You can find details on how to manage these small files yourself and learn more about them at the website www.aboutcookies.org.

We have tried to cover all cookies in this list that we or our service providers use. If you do notice any discrepancies please be sure to contact us and let us know.
