What are cookies?

When you visit this site we collect information about how you use our website so that we can make sure you see the pages that you ask for, that the site performs correctly, ensure functionality (such as our contact form) works and also so that we can perform analyses that allow us to improve our site - and therefore your experience of it.

Because of the way the internet works, it is sometimes necessary to use a 'cookie' to provide some of these functions, and to be able to identify you as the same visitor when you load a new page. Cookies are very small text files that are saved on your computer or mobile phone and contain information that helps a website run, and essentially work as memory for a website.

It is estimated that 92% of websites use cookies for various different reasons, including vital functionality (such as shopping baskets or keeping you logged in), collecting analytical data, and storing user preferences. Cookies can only be read by the site and browser that created them - so a handoverfist.co.uk cookie cannot be read by any other website, and a cookie created by Internet Explorer cannot be read by another browser.

What choices do I have?

Because of how our website works, we cannot provide it without using cookies. If you choose to continue to use our site we will therefore assume that you agree to let us store cookies on your computer or mobile phone.

If you wish, you can delete individual cookies or disable them completely from your browser settings which will allow you to continue to browse our site without any cookies being saved, however you may not get the full user experience and certain features may not function at all. As every browser is different, you should consult your browser documentation to find out how to do this.
