These cookies monitor how visitors use our website, which pages they visit and how long they spend on these pages. These cookies help us to improve the quality of information within our site and identify which pages users find most helpful, and those which they do not. All information supplied by analytics cookies is anonymous, so we can only see which pages have been visited, and not by whom.
Third Party Cookies
These are cookies dropped via our site, but originate from other websites which we do not have direct control over. Most of the third party cookies the HFE website deploys will originate from social media websites like Facebook, You Tube or Twitter. If for example we embed a video on our website that is hosted on You Tube, when you click play on that video You Tube will drop a cookie on your machine to let you know that you have watched it. Alternatively, if you hit the ‘Like’ button on one of our pages (please do!), the relevant social media site will drop a cookie again on your machine to again remind you that you have previously liked or shared this content throughout your social network. We always try to ensure that we only ever allow cookies to be deployed through our site from trustworthy organisations and their websites. We never allow cookies to be used by third parties to try and market their products/services to you.
What If You Don’t Like Cookies?
If you don’t want to accept the cookies that by default our site deploys to the browsers of our visitors then you can simply turn these off in your web browser. The means by which you do this will differ from one browser to the next (Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari etc) but this is usually accomplished through the browser’s settings.
