Cookie Page

We use cookies to mostly analyse the traffic to our websites and to make your online experience with us as easy, useful and reliable as possible.

Cookies are small text files that may be stored on your computer or mobile device that contains data related to our websites.  For example, a cookie may allow us to track or remember your actions or preferences over a period of time.

Cookies can be set by us and these are called first party cookies.  Where cookies are set by another domain other than ArtFarm, these are called third party. For avoidance of doubt, Cookies cannot be used to identify you personally.

For more information about cookies, please visit https://www.allaboutcookies.org/ or http://ec.europa.eu/ipg/basics/legal/cookies/index_en.htm.

There are two types of Cookie:

 

Session Cookie

Session Cookies are temporary. They allow ArtFarm to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.

Persistent Cookie

These cookies are set on your first visit to our website. They last longer than the duration of your stay and are used to help us understand which parts of our sites are regularly visited and how we can improve the service we deliver.

 

Functions

Cookies also have, broadly speaking, four different functions and can be categorised as follow: ‘strictly necessary’ cookies, ‘performance’ cookies, ‘functionality’ cookies and ‘targeting’ or ‘advertising’ cookies.  ArtFarm will use the term ‘Targeting’ when describing this function.

Strictly Necessary

Strictly Necessary cookies are essential to navigate around the ArtFarm websites and use features such as accessing secure areas of the websites or shopping baskets or e-billing. Website security cookies also fall under the category of necessary cookies.

Performance

Performance cookies collect data for statistical purposes on how our visitors navigate our websites; these cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works.

Functionality

Functional cookies allow our visitors to customise how our website looks for them: they can remember usernames, language preferences and regions.  On other websites they can be used to provide more personal services like local weather reports and traffic news.

Targeting

Targeting cookies are used to deliver advertisements more relevant to you but can also limit the number of times you see an advertisement and be used to chart the effectiveness of an ad campaign by tracking users’ clicks.
