Privacy and Cookies

 

In common with many websites, http://www.stanfieldandturner.com uses analytical software to log web traffic and assess site usage.

 

On this website, the job is done by Google Analytics, which needs to set small pieces of data known as cookies on visitors' computers or other devices in order to keep track of website usage. No personal information about website users is collected.

 

Google Analytics cookies perform functions such as distinguishing unique users, "remembering" previous visits, providing traffic source information and determining the start and end of a session - all in an anonymized way.

 

This is not the place to discuss how and why the word for American-style chocololate-chip biscuits came to be given to this particular feature of software technology, but suffice it to say that should you feel uncomfortable with the idea of cookies and do not want your visit to be tracked by Google Analytics (even in this anonymized way) you may delete and block cookies from this site through your web browser settings.

Google Analytics cookies will have the following names:  _utma, _utmb, _utmc, _utmz, etc. More information on how these cookies are used can be found on the Google Analytics website:

Naturally STANFIELD and TURNER​ would welcome the opportunity to have your visit counted towards the site statistics compiled by Google Analytics as this would contribute towards a fuller picture of usage of the site.
