Cookies Statement - Updated April 2018

Web pages have no memory and accordingly a user going from page to page will be treated by the website as a completely new visitor. A Cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server and enables the website you are visiting to keep track of your movement from page to page so that you do not have to provide the same information more than once. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. They are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the Cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of Cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you login to the members section of the UK FLAVOUR ASSOCIATION website, a cookie helps the website to recognise you as a member as you navigate through the website.

Use of Cookies

  • To recognise you as a member across pages of the website;
  • To track which pages are visited and time spent on them.

Persistent Cookies - these files stay in one of your browser's subfolders until you delete them manually or your browser deletes them based on the duration period contained within the persistent Cookie's file.
