About Cookies

  • What do I need to know about cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data that are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or application.

We use them to:

  • Remember information about you, so you don’t have to give it to us again. And again. And again
  • We will help you to stay signed in, even on different devices
  • Help us understand how people are using our services, so we can make them better
  • To deliver advertising inside the UK
  • Help us personalise joinery services to you by remembering your preferences and settings.

There are different types of cookies:

First-party cookies

These cookies are set by the website you’re visiting. And only that website can read them.

Third-party cookies

These cookies are set by someone other than the owner of the website you’re visiting. Some web pages may also contain content from other sites such as YouTube or and social media, which may set their own cookies. Also, if you share a link to one of our web pages, the service you share it on (for example, Facebook) may set a cookie on your browser. We have no control over third-party cookies – you can turn them off, but not through us.

Session cookies

These cookies only last as long as your online session, and disappear from your computer or device when you close your browser (like Internet Explorer or Safari).

Persistent cookies

These cookies stay on your computer or device after your browser has been closed and last for a time specified in the cookie. We use persistent cookies when we need to know who you are for more than one browsing session. For example, we use them to remember your preferences for the next time you visit.

Strictly necessary cookies

These cookies let you use all the different parts of our website. Without them, services that you’ve asked for can’t be provided. Also we collect data from you to help us understand how people are using our website, so we can make it better.

Some examples of how we use these cookies are:

  • Remembering security settings that affect access to certain content.
  • Collecting information on which web pages visitors go to most often so we can improve our online services

Functional cookies

These help us personalise to you by remembering your preferences and settings. Some examples of how we use these cookies are:

  • Remembering your choice of favourite content and help you do things like commenting on a blog
  • Remembering if you visited the website before so that messages for new visitors are not displayed to you
  • Remembering settings on the website like colour, font size and layout

Performance cookies

These help us make sure that the website is working properly and fix any errors. And they let us try out different ideas.

Advertising cookies

Some websites use advertising networks to show you specially targeted adverts when you visit. These networks may also be able to track your browsing across different sites. We don’t currently set advertising cookies.

Other tracking technologies

Some sites use things like web beacons, clear GIFs, page tags and web bugs to understand how people are using them and to target advertising to them. They usually take the form of a small, transparent image that is embedded in a web page or email. They work with cookies and capture data like your IP address, when you viewed the page or email, what device you were using and where you were.  We don’t use these methods.

  • What happens if third party cookies are disabled on my browser?

If third-party cookies are disabled on your browser, some features on our website may not work quite as you’d expect.

If your browser is blocking third-party cookies, some features can’t work properly so you may experience problems.

In the meantime, if you’ve chosen to block third-party cookies on your browser and want to avoid problems using our website, be sure to set exceptions for www.kingscrossjoinery.co.uk.

This won’t affect your privacy settings on other websites and services you use.

 

Do we use your data to personalise any adverts that might be shown to you?

Only if the service you are using contains advertising.

The companies that we and our advertisers use to tailor and deliver advertising to you may also collect data from you across other online services. This data helps us and our advertisers to predict what might interest you and to show you adverts tailored to those interests. This is commonly known as Online Behavioural Advertising (OBA) or interest-based advertising. Not all of the advertising we show is tailored based on your data and your interests. We also tailor our adverts based on the content you are viewing, contextual advertising; for example if you are reading an article about travel then we might show you ads for airlines.

Cross-Device Tracking

Your browsing activity may be tracked across different websites and different devices or apps. If you are not signed in to a web service, we may attempt to match your browsing activity on one device, such as your laptop, with your browsing activity on another device, such as your smartphone, so that we can improve relevancy.

How do our partners and advertisers use cookies?

I we allow any company to add tags or code to our website they are vetted to ensure that they handle all data responsibly eg Google Analytics. However, their use of the data is within their control and is subject to their own privacy practices. We take reasonable measures to protect our users’ data and ensure that it is used in-line with our policies. We also run third party security and auditing services on our site to detect malware and nefarious cookies.

Examples of Advertising Partners we can use. We do not currently have Advertising Partners 

This is purely for reference as we do not use these companies so this is to give you examples to aid transparency in regards to Cookie and GDPR compliance. These companies would be under contract but the data they collect would also be subject to their privacy policies and they may allow other companies to use cookies and tracking technologies to collect information about your website usage and your interaction with their adverts. * You can by all means contact these companies below by clicking on their name to find out more and to opt-out from your data being used by them for OBA purposes.

How do web browsers track my info?

They use various technical tools, including:

GDPR – What changes did we make to comply with EU Cookie Policy?

Users of our website must have a choice. You might not agree to all cookies. The type of phrase used at the moment is barely informative enough and it certainly doesn’t give a choice. Like all other consent under the GDPR, consenting to cookies needs to be a clear affirmative action made by you. Also remember you can opt out. The GDPR informs us that you should be able to withdraw consent as easily as you gave it. With cookies this will generally mean that you should be able to revoke consent through the same action as when you gave consent. Another option is to clear your Browser of any cookies and you can find this option inside your Browser settings.

Please contact us any time if you have any questions. Thank you.
