What are Cookies?

What do Cookies do and why should I let you save them on my device?
Cookies help us deliver an altogether less irritating experience when you come on to our site. For instance, when you select your preferred ‘Roller’ level using our Bonus Rating system, without a Cookie you will have to set this every time you move page. With a Cookie, your computer will remember your settings and automatically load the site’s default settings on every page.
Some Cookies will last only as long as you are on our website, others will persist on your machine for pre-determined lengths of time depending on the purpose of the Cookie.

Our Cookies: These are cookies are placed by us to make your use of our website smoother and more efficient.
Third-party cookies: There are various Cookies added to your machine by third parties who’s tools or service we have incorporated into this site. These include the following:
Wordpress – This is the website programming platform that we currently use. These Cookies are used for the basic function of the site.
Social Media – We do not use social media services for advertisement in the same manner that many our competitors do, but we do keep several different social media accounts active and integrated into this site to allow players to contact us via different mediums. As these services are integrated into our site the operators of these services may place Cookies on your machine.
Aweber – Aweber is the tool we use to manage our email list. The forms we have built into the site that allows users to sign-up to our email list is integrated into the site and as such may place Cookies on your machine.
Google Analytics - Google Analytics is a tool offered by Google to websites to allow the site owners to track and understand how users are engaging with their site. Google Analytics does not provide us any information that would allow us to identify you personally but it does give us information on:
- How long users spend on our site.
- Where they came from (search engine, social media, another website).
- What pages they visit.
- Whether they navigate to additional pages or leave straight away.
These are just examples of the types of information that Google Analytics provides, but in general this information is used by us to establish which pages users like and which pages users are not as interested in. This allows us to fine tune the content we are putting together for you and ensure we’re offering you the most useful services.
If you don’t want your internet usage tracked by Google you can deactivate Google Analytics using a browser add-on that you can download here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=. This add-on stores “opt-out” information on your device but you should be aware that this only works for the device and browser you install it on. If you use multiple browsers or multiple devices you will need to download it multiple times.
