What are cookies?
A cookie is a small amount of information that’s downloaded to your computer or device when you visit certain websites. Cookies make your browsing experience better by allowing the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login). This means you don’t have to re-enter this information each time you return to the site or browse from one page to another. Cookies also provide information on how people use the website, for instance whether it’s their first time visiting or if they are a frequent visitor.
What cookies does Leadership of Mums use and why?
Some cookies are necessary to allow you to browse the website, use its features, and access secure areas. The use of these cookies is essential for the website to work, and I do not use these cookies to collect personal information about you.
I also use functional cookies to remember choices you’ve made or information you’ve provided, such as your username. This allows me to tailor your website experience specifically to your preferences.
Leadership of Mums uses tools to help me improve my website. To this end, I use performance cookies to collect information about how you use our website and how often. These cookies only gather information for statistical purposes and do not gather any information that can personally identify you.
However, because these cookies are not strictly necessary for the use of our website, we require your consent to use them. The performance cookies we use include:
- Google Analytics and other third-party analytics providers to help measure how users interact with my website content. These cookies “remember” what users have done on previous pages and how they’ve interacted with the website. For more information on Google Analytics, visit Google’s information page. For instructions on how opt out of Google Analytics, see below.
Finally, Social plug-in tracking cookies are used by many social networks that have “social plug-in modules”. We integrate these modules into our platform to provide services than can be considered as “explicitly requested” by our users. Your consent, however, is required because some third-party social plug-in tracking cookies are used for things like behavioural advertising, analytics, and/or market research.
How long will cookies remain on my computer or mobile device?
The length of time that a cookie remains on your computer or mobile device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Session cookies last until you stop browsing and persistent cookies last until they expire or are deleted. Most of the cookies used here are persistent and will expire between 90 days and two years from the date they are downloaded to your device.
How to control cookies
