What is a cookie?

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. Websites use cookies to help users navigate efficiently and perform certain functions. Cookies that are required for the website to operate properly (necessary cookies) are allowed to be set without your permission. All other cookies need to be approved before they can be set in the browser.

The cookie-related information is not used to identify you personally and the data is fully under our control. These cookies are not used for any purpose other than those described here.

Cookies are split into third-party cookies and first-party cookies.  First-party cookies are those that are set by ruthmiskin.com.  Third-party cookies are those set by other websites.  An example of third-party cookies we use is the ‘m’ cookie from our payment software Stripe.  This is used for fraud prevention and detection.  See the ‘Which cookies do we use?’ section for more information on which third-party cookies we use.

What types of cookies do we use?

Strictly necessary cookies allow core website functionality. For example, we use the ‘sessionid’ which allows users to be recognised within a website so any page changes or item or data selection the user does is remembered from page to page.These are placed on your computer automatically but can be removed by going to your browser settings. See ‘How to remove cookies from your computer’ for more information. Note that key website functionality could be lost if you do remove these cookies.

Performance cookies are used to see how visitors use the website. These cookies cannot be used to directly identify a certain visitor.  For more details on how these cookies are used see the section below.

Targeting cookies are used to identify visitors between different websites.  These cookies may be used by companies to build a profile of visitor interests or show relevant ads on other websites.  If you select ‘accept all’ you will accept some tracking YouTube cookies that do things like track the number of views on videos.  See ‘Which cookies do we use?’ for more details. 

Functionality cookies are used to remember visitor information on the website.  For example, we use the ‘CookieScriptConsent’ cookie to remember the cookie preferences the user has chosen.
