    COOKIES

    This  policy of Spin Shed Ltd. outlines the different types of cookies that may be used in relation to the website https://www.spinshed.com / https://spinshed.co.uk (the "Website") owned and administered by us, as well as information on how you (the “User”) can control them.

     

    What actually are cookies?

    Cookies are small files, which are used for access to the Internet, that are stored on the computer, the mobile device, the tablet or other equipment of a given User. The cookie will help the Website to recognise your device the next time you visit. Web beacons or other similar files can also do the same thing. We use the term "cookies" in this Policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.

    Cookies are installed through a request by the server of a given web page to your web browser (i.e. Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, Mozilla).

     

    What are cookies used for?

    Cookies allow the Website to function better and more efficiently - they are needed in order for you to browse the Website and to use its services and functionalities. Without certain essential cookies, our Website will not function as well as we would like and we might not be able to provide you with certain services or features.

    Cookies are also used in order to prepare anonymous statistics, which help us to understand how a given user prefers to use our Website. We can therefore improve the Website’s structure and contents, without identifying the individual user. The Website may also use certain Wordpress features, software such as Google Analytics, Google Adsense or Google Adwords, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or other social media “like” buttons or plugins, which contain cookies.

     

    What types of cookies do we use?

    We use two types of cookies which are distinguishable by the length of time for which they exist – some remain only for the user session and others are fixed for a longer period. The former are temporary files, which remain on the device of the User until the end of his/her user session or until closing the web browser. The fixed cookies remain on the device of the User for the period specified in the cookies themselves or until deleted by the User.

     

    What are the purposes, for which we use cookies?

    Processes

    Intended to make the Website work in the way you expect. For example, we use a cookie that tells us whether you have already signed up for a User Account.

    Authentication, Security and Compliance

    Intended to prevent fraud, protect your data from unauthorised parties, and comply with legal requirements. For example, we use cookies to determine if you are logged in your User Account.

    Preferences

    Intended to remember information about how you prefer the services to behave and look. For example, we use a cookie that tells us whether you have declined to allow us to use your phone’s geolocation data.

    Notifications

    Intended to allow or prevent notices of information or options that we think could improve your use of our service. For example, we use a Cookie that stops us from showing you the signup notification if you have already seen it.

    Analytics

    Intended to help us understand how visitors use the services. For example, we use a Cookie that tells us how our search suggestions correlate with your interactions with the search page.

     

     

    Do cookies contain personal data?

    On their own, cookies do not require personal information in order to be used and most often, they do not identify internet Users. The personal data collected during the usage of cookies can only be gathered in order to ease the use of the services by the User. This data is encrypted in such a way that it does not allow unauthorised persons to gain access it.

     

    Deleting the cookies

    In general, applications for access to web pages (web or mobile browsers) allow the storage of cookies by default. These settings may be changed in such a way that the automatic administration of cookies is blocked by the web browser or that the User would be informed each time when cookies are sent to his/her device. Detailed information about the options and management of cookies may be found in the settings of the web browser. Limiting the usage of cookies may affect some of the features of the Website.

     

    Security and confidentiality

    Cookies are NOT viruses. They take the form of simple text. They are not made out of code and cannot therefore be executed or execute themselves alone. Consequently, they may not be duplicated or copied into other networks in order to get started and copied once more. Since cookies cannot perform those functions, they cannot be regarded as viruses.

    Most often, browsers have built-in privacy settings, which provide different levels for the acceptance of cookies, the period of their validity and their automatic deletion after a User has visited a given website.

     

    Advice on secure and responsible surfing, using cookies

    Thanks to their flexibility and the fact that many of the most visited and biggest websites use cookies, their use is almost inevitable. Deactivating cookies will not allow the access of a given user to many of the most commonly used websites.

    Here is some advice, which can ensure safe surfing, but with the help of cookies:

    • Personalise your cookie browser settings, in order to create an adequate level of protection from the use of cookies.
    • If you are the only person, who uses the computer, you may set longer terms for expiration of the storage of the browsing history and access to personal data.
    • If you share your computer access with somebody, you may set your browser settings to delete the surfing data every time you close your web browser.
    • Ensure that your browser is always up to date. Many of the attacks, based on cookies, are realised when exploiting the weak spots of old and non-updated versions of the web browsers.

    It is possible that you have set your browser in a way that does not allow for cookies to be accepted  - you can set your browser to accept cookies only from certain websites. All modern browsers offer the option to change cookie settings. This includes computer browsers, as well as mobile device browsers. These settings are usually found in the "options" menu or the "preferences" menu of your browser. In order to find those settings, you can also use the links below or use the "help" menu of your browser for more information.
