To comply with the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations we periodically conduct a Cookie Audit of our website. This Cookie Audit was last updated on 20 April 2012.
Our website uses a number of cookies to store data on our visitor's computers. For more information about managing cookies, please see http://www.aboutcookies.org/.
Our current assessment of the intrusiveness of the cookies used by our website is as follows:
We believe there is no reason for our website visitors to be concerned about the privacy implications of any of the cookies we use, but we do recognise the importance of making you aware of the purpose and scope of the data stored in the cookies which are created or updated on your computer when you visit our website. You may choose to delete these cookies from your computer between visits to our website.
We recommend that if you have concerns about the privacy implications of the cookies we use, then you should investigate how to do this using the cookie management tools in your web browser.
First party cookies are specific to the host site that created them (in this case, mcraeandcompany.co.uk). They are not shared across domains and so cannot be accessed by a web server other than mcraeandcompany.co.uk
Analytics: We use Google Analytics, which creates a number of first-party cookies, all prefixed __utm:
• __utma: contains a unique and anonymous identifying ID, which allows us to ensure that subsequent visits to our website are recorded as belonging to the same (unique) visitor. This cookie expires after two years.
• __utmb: used to establish and continue a unique user session. Each time you request another page from the website the cookie is updated to expire after 30minutes.
• __utmc: works with __utmb to determine when to create a new session for a website visitor. This is a session cookie and expires when you exit the browser.
• __utmz: tracks how you found us and is used to calculate traffic and navigation within the website. It is updated with every new page view and expires after 6 months.
• You may also sometimes find a __utmv cookie which relates to custom reporting segments, a feature which we occasionally use on Google Analytics.
In all cases these first-party cookies do not store any personal or sensitive information, or anything that makes you personally identifiable to us.
We use the data that is collected using these first-party cookies to report, in aggregate, how our visitors find and use our website; we use those reports to understand overall visitor behaviour, and we use that understanding to update and improve our website.
Third party cookies are cookies created by an external service when you use a page on our website. These cookies are specific to the third-party's domain and accordingly the data held in them can be seen and managed by the third party and not by us. We control whether or not we use the third-party service with our website, and how it is integrated and presented on our website. We do not have control over the cookies themselves.
• We currently use Pardot cookies to help us monitor traffic levels, search queries and visits to this website in order to improve the visitor experience. These cookies enable us to determine whether you are a return visitor to the site, to measure the pages visited and remember preferences such as form field values. Pardot sets a visitor cookie: which includes the name “visitor_id” plus the unique identifier for the visitor. Pardot cookies are simply a numeric identifier that allow us to recognise repeat visitors, and has no meaning outside the Pardot system. Any information you do submit will be stored securely and will never be passed on or sold to any third party.
