General Information About Cookies
A cookie is a small text file which typically contains a site name and a unique user ID which is sent by our web server to your web browser. It is then stored by the browser so it knows if the user has visited the site before. Whenever the browser requests a page from the server, it sends a small file back to the server so that the server can distinguish and track users as they navigate different pages on a website and improve the experience for returning users.
- Site functionality: Some elements of the site will not work without certain cookies. e.g. woocommerce_cart_hash allows the user to add products to their basket
- Browsing experience: User experience is improved by the use of these cookies e.g. basel_cookies prevents the user from seeing the cookie message on every page if they have already dismissed it
- Analytics: To gain an understanding into how visitors use our website and how we can improve their experience.
