Cookies!

What they are and how we use them

This page is not about the delicious cookies we make at The Oakes (sorry), but about internet cookies which are used on just about every website in the world.

Cookies are used on this site in the most fundamental way - to provide the best possible browsing experience.

They are especially important if you want to register or log in to use our 'Interact' features. Without these cookies you would be treated as a new visitor every time you moved to a new page, and so you wouldn't even be able to log in at all!

Besides this, cookies are very useful to help gather information on how visitors use our website. This information is used to help us build a more interesting and user-friendly experience.

We do not use them to collect personal information, nor do we use them in any way to do with advertising. These are the uses of cookies which have given them a bad reputation!

So sit back, open a packet of cookies, and enjoy our website :)

What are my choices?

By continuing to browse our website, you are agreeing to our use of cookies (if your web browser allows it).

You can view, delete and block cookies (for a specific site or for all sites) using any modern web browser. Please see the browsers 'help' section for how this can be accomplished.
