What are cookies?

A “cookie” is a text file containing small amounts of information which a server can store on your personal computer or mobile device when you visit Think Ambient’s website. There are two main kinds of cookies; session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies are allocated to your computer or device only for the duration of your visit to a website and these are deleted from your computer when you close your browser, whereas persistent cookies remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach their expiry date.

Why do we use cookies?

Like most companies we use cookies to collect aggregate and non-personal information to tell us how many users visited our site and the pages accessed. By collecting this information, we learn how to tailor our website to best meet your needs. Unless you disable cookies, you agree that we can place cookies on your device. Examples of how cookies are used to improve services for you are: Enabling a service to recognise your device so you don’t have to give the same information several times during one task. Recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested. Measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast. Our cookies aren’t used to identify you personally. They’re just here to make the website(s) work better for you. In fact, you can manage and/or delete these small files as you wish.


What type of cookies do we use and how can you manage them?

We use Google Analytics to collect information about how users use our website(s). We do this to make sure it’s meeting our users’ needs and to understand how we could do it better. Google analytics sets cookies to store information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the website(s), how you got to the website(s) and what you click on. It does not collect or store your personal information (e.g. your name or address) so this information cannot be used to identify who you are. We do not allow Google to use or share our analytics data. To learn more about Google analytic cookies and how to manage them, click here.
