Cookie Policy

Here at CoupesCorner we use cookies – small text files that are placed on your machine to help us enhance your experience and the functionality of our website.

 

How are cookies used on CoupesCorner?

CoupesCorner’s cookies are not used to identify you on a personal level.

In general, cookies are used to retain user preferences and store information for things like Analytic’s. As a rule, cookies will make your browsing experience better by preventing you from having t constantly click on something.

An excellent example of this is the little bar you’ve no doubt seen at the bottom of the site. It pops up and tells you about our site using cookies, if you click accept, it stores a cookie on your computer that simply has the words “yes” inside. Every time you visit our site, we check for this cookie and if it is found, the bar isn’t displayed to you, saving you some minor annoyance.

 

Can I opt out or disable these cookies?

You cannot ‘opt out’ via this website. If you wish to disable cookies on this site and others the most effective way to do so is by disabling cookies in you web browser (they can be re-enabled at any time). We suggest consulting the Help section of your browser for more information.

Unfortunately, a substantial amount of our website relies on the tiny pieces of information stored inside our little cookies and so our website may not function correctly if you do decide to disable cookies.

 

What about tracking?

We are a completely self funded website, you won’t find any of those annoying adverts on our lovely site and as such, you won’t receive cookies that track you and send ‘targeted advertising’ onto your browser. In fact, the founders of CoupesCorner of quite firmly against this kind of advertisement and strongly suggest you use AdBlock Plus to stop seeing (and stop funding) those nasty Internet ads!

We do not allow Google to access, use, share or sell any of analytical data. We simply don’t believe in it.

 

What Cookies do you use then?

We try to be transparent, so here’s a list of the Cookies we currently use (some only apply for members of staff who log in to the site).
