Cookies

Does the Bollington Outdoors web site collect cookies?

The short answer is no. None of the page code written by the Bollington Outdoors webmaster writes or uses cookies. The Bollington Outdoors web pages include many links to other web sites. The Bollington Outdoors web site has no control over other web sites and their use of cookies. Please consult the target site’s privacy policy for details.
The Bollington Outdoors web site is hosted by 1 and 1 Internet Ltd, our Internet Service Provider (ISP). They record detailed usage statistics. There is no user personal information available.
If you arrive at the Bollington Outdoors web site (or any other web site) via a search, either by Google or any of the other search services, your link normally goes via the search company’s server so that they can record users’ page targets. The same is true of price comparison and marketing sites such as Amazon. This information is used by them to selectively target their advertising. Details of these practices may be found on their respective privacy policy pages. This list is not exhaustive. There are probably many other uses of cookies on the larger commercial web sites.

What are Cookies?

A cookie is a usually very small computer file recording information about the user’s use of a particular web site. 

What happens if I disallow cookies?

Most PC and MAC browsers provide an option in their settings to prevent the creation and keeping of cookies. So far as the Bollington Outdoors web site is concerned, absolutely nothing will change if you disallow cookies; there will be no difference in your browsing experience because we don’t use them. However, some complex sites will simply not work without them. In particular, you may find that banking and similar sites just won’t work without them and they may not even allow you to logon until you allow cookies once again.

Should I be concerned about cookie use?

Generally no. However, there are some web sites, usually those selling products or services, that make extensive use of information collected via cookies. Each of these companies should now be soliciting
your permission to do so. Some may well offer the user a choice of cookie use, for instance, enabling the user to disconnect from marketing purposes. Others will offer an all or nothing capability.
Beware that if you say ‘no’ a web site may become unuseable to you.

Summary

Cookies are pretty well essential for a good internet browsing experience. The Bollington Outdoors web site is a simple site which does not use them. We do not collect any personal information from you or your computer. Our ISP and some of the sites we link to collect a wide range of statistical information and may in some circumstances collect personal information. Some sites are said to collect more information than is reasonably justified and it is because of this that new regulations have been introduced.
