What Are Cookies?
Cookies are small text files, downloaded to your computer by the browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox etc.) whenever you access a website. They enable websites to store such information as user preferences and login details. They may also be used to record how long you spend browsing each page on a site or what pages you visit most. Cookies can be thought of as providing a “memory” for the website, enabling it to recognise you and respond appropriately. Generally, cookies are most beneficial to you, the visitor, making your interaction with frequently-visited sites smoother and easier than they would be without them.
We use Google Analytics, a third party service which creates its own set of cookies for the purpose of compiling a number of statistical reports. The information gathered is completely anonymous and is used to assess a wide variety of website activities, including how our site is navigated and what pages are most popular. If you would prefer that Google did not track about your browsing habits, you can install a browser add-on to opt-out.
Finding our Offices
We may also use a number of third party, social media plug-ins including but not limited to Google’s ‘+1′ button, Facebook’s ‘Like Box’, Twitter’s ‘Follow Button’ and LinkedIn’s ‘Share’ and ‘Follow’ buttons. We use these services for the convenience of our visitors, allowing them to access up to the minute information as well as recommend our services to others.
