Just what are those pesky little things?

Our Cookie Policy

Many websites use cookies in order to improve your experience by enabling that website to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’).

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, storing your preferences, and generally improving your experience of a website. Cookies make the interaction with a website faster and easier. If a website doesn’t use cookies, it will think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site – for example, when you enter your login details and move to another page it won’t recognise you and it won’t be able to keep you logged in.

Some websites will also use cookies to enable them to target their advertising or marketing messages based for example, on your location and/or browsing habits. Sweet Chilli Media do not do this. Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting (‘first party cookies’) or they may be set by other websites who run content on the page you are viewing (‘third party cookies’). Find out more.

What is in a cookie?

A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers. It allows a website to remember things like your preferences or what’s in your shopping basket.

What cookies do Sweet Chilli Media use?

On our website, we only use first party cookies, ie cookies that are set by and can only be read by our own website. These cookies can be session cookies, that last for the duration that you are on our website and will be deleted when you close your browser or persistent cookies such as the one which records your preferences for acknowledging the cookie pop-up (otherwise you would get the pop up every time you visited our website). This persistent cookie is set to expire after one month. We use Google Analytics to monitor how people are finding our website. We do not use any other third party cookies such as advertising etc.

What to do if you don’t want cookies to be set
