Cookie Policy

At bibra, we take the privacy of visitors to our website very seriously. The purpose of this cookie policy is to let you know you about the types of cookies we use (we use cookies in order to allow our website to perform in a certain way). By visiting our site, you are automatically consenting to our use of the cookies described in this cookie policy, however if you want to deactivate these at any time, you can alter the setting on your browser.
 

Why is a cookie, called a cookie?

What an excellent question. The honest answer is – we’re not sure. There are many stories surrounding the cookie, including our favourite, the ‘Hansel and Gretel’ (in the same way they dropped crumbs to find their way back, your browser cookie is dropping crumbs to track where you’ve been). However, in reality, we’re not too sure – in this office, we prefer to eat cookies than drop them on the floor.
 

What is a cookie?

Other than being a delicious treat, a cookie is a small piece of data that is sent by our computer, to yours, so that information can be recollected. A cookie is stored by your browser (in a text file) on your computer and each time your web browser requests content from a server that has previously interacted with your machine (i.e. a site that you have visited before) the cookie’s message is sent back. Cookies are harmless (the data ones, not the sugary delicious ones that we enjoy in our office) and only used for transferring anonymous information. To learn more about cookies please visit the ICO website. If you are having trouble disabling cookies and would like to learn how to do this, please visit the All About Cookies website.

Whilst you visit our website, your browser may interact with content from different servers and therefore cookies from sources other than this site may be set on, or read from, your computer. We take data protection and confidentiality very seriously and NO cookie set while on this site will capture any personally identifiable information (PII) or be used with malicious intent, whatsoever.

We personally use cookies to track how visitors, like you, have arrived at our site, which pages you visited and how you interacted with that page. All this does, is help us improve your experience and make sure you see only relevant information (which will inevitably improve the quality of our website). Just to let you know, we use third party tools to monitor and analyse traffic to, from and within our website.

First party cookies

These are the cookies set by our website, these are only active when you are visiting here and can only be read by us.

Third party cookies

These aren’t set us – but are used by us…for example, we use the services of an analytics company who have their own cookies working for them – or if we ever decide to put YouTube content on our website, they will set their own cookies.

We do not allow third party advertising on our website, so there’s no need to worry about targeted ads finding their way onto your screen.

This type of cookie is saved on your computer for a fixed period (usually a year or longer) and is not deleted when the browser is closed (as per ‘session cookies’). Persistent cookies are used when we would like to know who you are, in order to make your visit to our site easier – for example, we would use them to store your preferences, so that they are remembered for your next visit.
