Cookies

A cookie consists of information sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser. JL uses both “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies on the website. She uses the session cookies to keep track of you while you navigate the website. She may use the persistent cookies to enable her website to recognise you when you visit. Session cookies are deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Persistent cookies remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date.

JL uses Google Analytics to analyse the use of this website. Google Analytics generates statistical and other information about website use by means of cookies, which are stored on users’ computers. Information generated relating to the website is used to create reports about the use of the website. Google stores this information. Google’s privacy policy is available at: http://www.google.com/privacypolicy.html.

Most browsers allow you to reject all cookies, whilst some browsers allow you to reject just third party cookies. For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking Tools | Internet Options | Privacy, then selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector. However, be aware that blocking all cookies has a negative impact upon the usability of many websites.
