At Zone we’re special in many ways, but one way we aren’t is when it comes to cookies, where we’re pretty happy to go with the flow – in terms of both using them and writing disclaimer sections about them, such as the following:
What is a cookie?
They do lots of different jobs, such as letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences and telling us what device you’re using so we can improve the user experience.
Which ones do we use?
All the cookies used on this website have been categorised based on the categories found in the ICC UK Cookie guide as: Analytical/Performance cookies.
These cookies do collect information about how people use our website; for instance, which pages visitors go to most often, or if they see any error messages. These cookies don’t collect any information that can be used to identify a visitor – all the information they collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous and is only used to improve how our website works.
Our cookies come from two sources, namely:
Google Analytics allows us to better understand the big picture of how users navigate to and around our website. All information is completely anonymous, and we have no access to information linking to individual users. Data gathered includes how users arrive on our website, how they navigate between pages, from where in the world and what device they are using. These cookies are called: utma/utmb/utmc/utmz
Hotjar Insights gives a better low-level picture of micro interactions and page navigation on our website. All information is completely anonymous, and we have no access to information linking to individual users. Data gathered includes individual anonymous user mouse movement heatmaps and a reconstructed playback of mouse movements and clicks, as well as overall page-to-page navigation. These cookies are called: _hjUserId / _hjIncludedInSample
OK, so what now?
