Storing Your Data
I may use third party tools to store your personal data and keep your information safe, such as a CRM System, cloud storage or email marketing software, as well as my own hard drives and data storage systems.
Cookies are small files that hold information; they are placed on your computer when you access websites or use apps on your device. The data contained in the cookie can be retrieved by the website or app that placed them there. They can also be accessed by websites or apps that have been authorised to use them by the site or app that first dropped them.
Some cookies only exist for a short period of time, and are then automatically deleted by your device. Others last for longer – called 'persistent cookies'. These can be used to analyse multiple site visits over time, or customise the content that's displayed.
Some cookies are set by the website or app you're visiting; these are called 'first party' cookies. Others may be set by a third party when you use a site or app – for example, by a tool built into the website, or by an advertising network that displays adverts on the site or in the app.
