What is a cookie?

A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers. Most websites you visit use cookies to improve your user experience by allowing the website to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’). Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting (‘first party cookies’) or they may be set by other websites who run content on the page you are viewing (‘third party cookies’).

What do cookies do?

Cookies have lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, storing your preferences, and improving your experience of a website. Cookies make the interaction between you and the website faster and easier. If a website doesn’t use cookies, it will think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site, for example, even after you “log in,” if you move to another page it won’t recognise you and it won’t be able to keep you logged in.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics to provide us with information about how our website is being used. For example, it tells us the number of visitors the site receives every day, where they have come from, what content they read as well and how long they spend on the site.

This data helps us to understand use of our site and how to ensure it is relevant for our audience. Google Analytics only provides aggregated data and does not collect personal information – so we can’t tell which individuals have visited the site or how they have used it.

Read Google’s privacy policy or opt out of Google Analytics.

Continuing to use our website and services is deemed to provide the British Beauty Council with your implied consent to the use of cookies similar technologies for the purposes we describe.
