Cookie Information

Our site uses Cookies to function. If there is anything in the following text you don't like you can update your browser to block or delete cookies. The other option is probably not to use our site, but we'd really hate to see you go! You can read more about the cookies and their purpose below.

If you wish to turn off cookies, you can read how to do so here.

Our Cookies

We require certain cookies to enable the site to function. Namely the cookie laravel_session which holds session data and hh_cookie_policy which relates to whether you've agreed to allowing cookies.

Third party cookies:

Our website includes cookies set by Google - these are cookies which are activated through your use of our website, but are actually set by Google, rather than hallshire.com.

You can read more about these cookies on Google's website.

Google Analytics:

We use Google Analytics - a service offered to websites all around the web by Google - to count visitors to our website. Google Analytics can also tell us things such as which pages are looked at the most and how long people stay on those pages, so that we can make sure our website is performing well and seemingly giving people the information they need.

Google Analytics cookies are named something like this:

_ga

_gat

_gid

We have asked Google to anonymise IPs during the collection of their data, so this should provide some additional anonymity for our users from Google. These cookies are only placed once you click the 'I consent' button and consent to cookies.


Google Adsense:

We use Google adsense to show advertising to you across the site. Without this advertising revenue the site simply wouldn't be able to stay online, therefore we consider Adsense to be a necessary cookie.

The best up to date source of information about the cookies Google Analytics uses is on Google's website. For more information about how Google uses your personal information, please refer to the partners privacy & terms section of their website.

We have configured Google Adsense to show non-personalised ads, however they state:

"Non-personalised ads are targeted using contextual information rather than the past behaviour of a user. Although these ads don’t use cookies for ads personalisation, they do use cookies to allow for frequency capping, aggregated ad reporting, and to combat fraud and abuse."

If you have any questions or concerns please contact us.
