Cookies on www.bigginhillclub.co.uk
This site, like many others, occasionally uses small files called cookies to help customise your experience. Find out more about cookies and how you can control them
This page contains information on what 'cookies' are, the cookies used by BHASC, how to switch cookies off in your browser, how to specifically disable third party advertising cookies, and some useful links for further reading on the subject.

What are 'cookies'?
'Cookies' are small text files that are stored by the browser (e.g. Internet Explorer or Safari etc.) on your computer or mobile phone. They allow websites to store such things as user preferences. You can think of cookies as providing a "memory" for the website, enabling it to recognise a user and respond appropriately.

How does www.bigginhillclub.co.uk use cookies?

A visit to a page on www.bigginhillclub.co.uk may generate the following types of cookie:

Anonymous analytics cookies
Advertising cookies
Third party advertising cookies

Anonymous analytics cookies:

Every time a user visits our website, web analytics software provided by a third party generates an anonymous analytics cookie.

These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before.

Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies, and if you don't, we generate new ones.

This allows us to track how many individual unique users we have, and how often they visit the site.

Advertising cookies

These cookies allow us to know whether or not you've seen an advert or a type of advert, and how long it is since you've seen it.

We also use cookies to assist in targeted advertising. We may use cookies set by a third party to more accurately target advertising to you, to show, for example, adverts about holidays to users who have recently visited the travel section of our site. These cookies are anonymous - they store information about the content you are browsing, but not about who you are.

Third party advertising cookies

A lot of the advertisements you see on the BHASC website are generated by third parties. Some of these third parties use their own anonymous cookies to track how many people have seen a particular ad, or to track how many people have seen it more than once.

The companies that generate these cookies have their own privacy policies, and BWS has no access to read or write these cookies. These third party advertising cookies may be used by those third parties to anonymously target advertising to you on other websites, based on your visit to BHASC.

Other third party cookies

On some pages of www.bigginhillclub.co.uk, third parties may also set their own anonymous cookies, for the purposes of tracking the success of their application, or customising the application for you. Because of how cookies work, BHASC cannot access these cookies, nor can the third parties access the data in cookies used by BHASC.

How do I turn cookies off?

It is usually possible to stop your browser accepting cookies, or to stop it accepting cookies from a particular website. For example, we cannot tell if you are signed in without using cookies, but if you do, some services on the BHASC site may not work for you.

In order to understand these setttings, the following links may be helpful, otherwise you should use the 'Help' option in your browser for more details.
