Thank you for visiting our website sallybibb.com. We want to explain to you what ‘personal data’ the website collects and what we do with it, including our use of ‘cookies’.
The website doesn’t itself collect any personal data like names, email addresses etc. as it doesn’t use a contact form or an embedded mailing list signup form. You may contact us directly by email.
The website collects your IP address, for security purposes, and an anonymised version of your IP address, for website-traffic-tracking purposes. Please see Section 1. below which explains why we do this and your options with respect to this IP address collection.
The website places Google Analytics tracking cookies. If you decline them via our ‘cookie notice’, then new Google Analytics cookies are not placed. Please see Section 2. below which explains what cookies the website places and your options with respect to those cookies.
Any data that is sent between your device and our website is encrypted — you can see the word Secure and/or a little padlock next to the url in your browser.
Section 1. IP address collection by Google Analytics tracking and Wordfence security software
The website uses Google Analytics tracking software so we can evaluate the effectiveness of the site in general terms, but we have set it to ANONYMISE the IP addresses it collects, so you can’t be personally identified. You can read more about how this anonymisation works and what it means at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2763052?hl=en.
Section 2. Cookies placed by our website
We use Google Analytics to monitor the effectiveness of our website. Google Analytics places Third Party (placed by a Third Party rather than by our own website function) tracking cookies to monitor website traffic, and in particular whether a visitor to our website is a new user or a returning user. The cookies placed (along with their time to expiry and their purpose) are:
_ga 2 years Used to distinguish users.
_gid 24 hours Used to distinguish users.
_gat 1 minute Used to throttle request rate.
For more details please read https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/cookie-usage.
If you prefer not to accept Google Analytics tracking cookies, please click the Decline button on our Cookie Notice, and new Google Analytics cookies will not be placed.
If you are happy for new Google Analytics cookies to be placed, please click the Accept button.
If you Decline cookies, then content embedded with ‘iframes’, like YouTube videos, on our website will be blocked, however an alternative ‘text link’ to the video on YouTube is provided so that you may still view the content.
Please note that whether you click Accept or Decline, First Party (placed by our website rather than by a Third Party website) cookies may be placed by our WeePie Cookie Notice plugin to remember your preference (Accept or Decline) for 365 days, so we don’t keep annoying you with cookie notices every time you visit. These cookies are wpca_consent and wpca_status.
