EU Cookie Law
Since 26th May 2012, all UK websites have needed to comply with the new EU E-Privacy Directive 2009/136/EC. Cookies are only a small part of this directive, and whilst websites are still allowed to use them, the directive states that, it must be made clear to all visitors that cookies are being used and a message or warning must be displayed so that the visitor is aware of their use.
1. What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small amount of data, often including a unique identifier, sent to the browser of your computer or mobile phone (referred to here as a "device") from a website's computer. It is stored on your device's hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it. To protect your privacy, your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, and not those sent to you by other websites. Many websites do this whenever a user visits them to track online traffic flows.
On www.fibre-pro.co.uk our cookies record information about your online preferences so we can tailor the site to your interests. You can set your device’s preferences to accept all cookies, notify you when one is issued, or not receive them at all. Selecting the last option means you will not receive certain personalised features, which may result in you being unable to take full advantage of all the website's features. Each browser is different, so please check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
Information supplied by cookies can help us analyse the profile of our visitors, which helps us provide you with a better user experience. For example, if on a previous visit you went to our marketing pages, we might find this out from your cookie and highlight marketing information on subsequent visits.
