    Cookies Policy

    Information Escouts collects from you

    a. What is a cookie?
    A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer or mobile phone (referred to here as a "device") browser from a website's computer and is stored on your device's hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other websites. Many websites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows (statistics).

    On Escouts websites cookies record information about your online preferences and allow us to tailor the websites to your interests.
    Users have the opportunity to set their devices to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these means that certain personalised features cannot then be provided to that user and accordingly they may not be able to take full advantage of all of the website's features. Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.During the course of any visit to a Escouts website, the pages you see, along with a cookie, are downloaded to your device. Many websites do this, because cookies enable website publishers to do useful things like find out whether the device (and probably its user) has visited the website before. This is done on a repeat visit by checking to see, and finding, the cookie left there on the last visit.

    b. How does Escouts use cookies?
    Information supplied by cookies can help us to analyse the profile of our visitors and help us to provide you with a better user experience. For example, if on a previous visit you went to our services pages, we might find this out from your cookie and highlight service information on your second and subsequent visits.

    c. Third Party Cookies on Escouts pages
    Please note that during your visits to Escouts you may notice some cookies that are not related to Escouts. When you visit a page with content embedded from, for example, YouTube or Flickr, you may be presented with cookies from these websites. Escouts does not control the dissemination of these cookies. You should check the third party websites for more information about these.

    d. How to control and delete cookies Escouts will not use cookies to collect personally identifiable information about you. However, if you wish to restrict or block the cookies which are set by Escouts websites, or indeed any other website, you can do this through your browser settings. The Help function within your browser should tell you how. Please be aware that restricting cookies may impact on the functionality of Escouts websites. If you wish to view your cookie code, just click on a cookie to open it. You'll see a short string of text and numbers. The numbers are your identification card, which can only be seen by the server that gave you the cookie. For information on how to do this on the browser of your mobile phone you will need to refer to your handset manual.

    e. Third Party Cookies
    To support our services, we sometimes embed photos and video content from websites such as YouTube and Flickr. As a result, when you visit a page with content embedded from, for example, YouTube or Flickr, you may be presented with cookies from these websites. Escouts does not control the dissemination of these cookies. You should check the third party websites for more information about these.
