What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are used to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.
A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you taking full advantage of this website.
What information do we obtain from cookies?
• The IP (Internet Protocol) address from which you access our website
• The type of browser and operating system used to access our website
• The date and time of your visit to the site
• The pages, files, documents and links that you visit
• The internet address of the website from which you linked to our site (i.e. the previous site you visited before you came to us).
The above information is not used to identify you personally and is crucial for statistical and analytical purposes.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better user experience. For example, we use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are used on our website. This helps us analyse our web traffic and make ongoing improvements to our website content, navigation and functionality as a result of our improved understanding of visitor behaviour. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed.
Also, we use a cookie to keep the cookie disclaimer text hidden once you’ve accepted it, so it doesn’t continue to interfere with your viewing of our pages.
If you chose to share your contact details with us and register to access Helifix’s restricted design information such as Repair Details, a ‘visitor identifier’ cookie is used that prevents you having to register or login on subsequent visits (or remember a password!). Again, this is designed to improve your user experience.
If you have concerns with any of the above, please either write to us at Helifix, 2/19 Nuttall Drive, Hillsborough, Christchurch, 8022 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
