Hopefully the information below provides you with clear and comprehensive information about the technologies used and the purposes for which we use them, but it you have any additional questions, or require any additional information, please get in touch.
What are cookies, localStorage and similar technologies?
These technologies are essentially small data files placed on your computer, tablet, mobile phone or other device (“collectively, a “device”) that allows us to record information when you visit or use our websites, service, applications, and other tools. Though often these technologies are generically referred to as “Cookies,” each functions slightly differently, and is better explained below:
Cookies: These are small text files (typically made up of letters and numbers) placed in the memory of your browser or device when you visit a website. Cookies allow a website to recognise a particular device or browser. There are several types of cookies:
- Session cookies expire at the end of your browser session and allow us to link your actions during that particular browser session.
- Persistent cookies are stored on your device in between browser sessions, allowing us to remember your preferences or actions across multiple sites.
- First-party cookies are those set by a website that is being visited by the user at the time in order to preserve your settings (e.g., while on our site).
- Third-party cookies are placed in your browser by a website, or domain, that is not the website or domain that you are currently visiting. If a user visits a website and another entity sets a cookie through that website this would be a third-party cookie.
When you enter a website using cookies, you may be asked to fill out a form providing personal information; like your name, e-mail address, and interests. This information is packaged into a cookie and sent to your browser (Chrome, Firefox, etc.), which then stores the information for later use. The next time you go to the same website, your browser will send the cookie to the server. The message is sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
LocalStorage: An industry-standard technology that allows a website or application to store information locally on your computer or mobile device.
Similar technologies: Technologies that store information in your browser or device utilising local shared objects or local storage, such as flash cookies, HTML 5 cookies, and other web application software methods. These technologies can operate across all of your browsers, and in some instances may not be fully managed by your browser and may require management directly through your installed applications or device. We do not use these technologies for storing information to target advertising to you on or off this site.
What types of cookies, localStorage and similar technologies do we use and why
Our cookies, localStorage and similar technologies serve various purposes, but are generally either necessary or essential to the functioning of this site, or help us to improve the performance of the site or provide you extra functionality. More specifically:
Strictly Necessary or Essential: 'Strictly necessary' or "essential" cookies, localStorage and similar technologies let you move around the website and use essential features like podcast playback. Without these technologies, the site could not function as intended or requested. Please note that these technologies do not gather any information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you've been on the internet. Accepting these technologies is a condition of using whymumsdonjump.com, so if you prevent these from loading we can't guarantee your use or how the security therein will perform during your visit.
Performance: 'Performance' cookies, localStorage and similar technologies collect information about how you use our website e.g. which pages you visit, and if you experience any errors. These cookies do not collect any information that could identify you and is only used to help us improve how our website works, understand what interests our users and measure how effective our content is by providing anonymous statistics and data regarding how our website is used. Accepting these technologies is a condition of using our sites, services, applications, tools or messaging, so if you prevent these from loading we can't guarantee your use or how the security therein will perform during your visit.
Functionality: These cookies, localStorage or similar technologies are used to provide services or to remember settings to improve your visit.
We also utilize 3rd party service providers to assist us in delivering on the same functions, which means that our authorized service providers may also place cookies, localStorage and similar technologies on your device via our services (third party cookies). They may also collect information that helps them identify your device, such as IP-address, or other unique or device identifiers.
