From the 26th May 2012, the EU Cookie Directive comes into force in the UK. In order to comply with this directive we have to inform you about the cookies we are setting and the reasons why we would like to set them. Scroll down for a simple table with explanations next to each cookie type.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small files set on your browser which records data to allow us to measure the performance of our website whilst also improving your experience as you navigate through it.

What is the difference between 1st party cookies and 3rd party cookies?

First party cookies are cookies set by the site itself. For example, if a visitor visits www.shentongroup.co.uk and this website sets a cookie, this cookie is called a first-party cookie. We use 1st party cookies mainly for Google Analytics usage and WordPress settings.

Third party cookies are set from a different domain than the site that the visitor is currently visiting. If a visitor visits www.cnplus.co.uk and that website contains an advertisement coming from another domain such as www.manufacturer.co.uk, and that domain sets a cookie, this cookie is called a third-party cookie. Third party cookies can be blocked via your browser settings. Our website also includes social networking share buttons for Facebook, Twitter & linkedIn which sets 3rd party cookies.

What type of cookies does the shentongroup website set?

Cookies set by Google Analytics, WordPress and social networking share buttons or widgets.

Google Analytics allows us to view statistics on how our website is being used by people who visit it and which pages are not working so they can be improved.

These cookies purely remember things like your name, email address so that when you come back to our site, you don’t need to re-enter all your information again.
