What is a cookie?

 

A cookie is a small text file which is generated by a website and stored in a folder on your computer. The cookie stored is unique to your computer.

 

Why are cookies needed?

 

Cookies are needed to make websites work better. For example when you add an item to your shopping cart on the Amazon website the contents of the shopping cart are stored in the cookie. Another example would be when you log into a webmail service such as Hotmail or Gmail a cookie is generated that confirms you are logged in. When you log off the cookie is deleted. This means if someone goes back to your webmail address they will not be able to read your emails.

 

What cookies does The Solicitors’ Charity use?

 

The Solicitors’ Charity uses Google Analytics cookies to record visits to the website. This helps us to identify which parts of the website are popular and which are less so.

 

Why does Google Analytics need to know about my computer?

 

Early web traffic analytics used the IP address of a visitor a website however this did not allow for tracking individual visitors where the IP address was the same, for example, computers on a corporate network. The information generated by Google Analytics cookies will be used by Google Analytics to evaluate the use of this website. Google Analytics may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google Analytics’ behalf.
