COOKIE POLICY

Last updated 26th March 2024

 

This Cookie Policy explains how Sussex Bee Farm (“Company”, “we”, “us”, and “our”) uses cookies and similar technologies to recognize you (your IP address) when you visit our website at https://www.sussexbeefarm.com (“website”).   It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them.

In some cases we may use cookies to collect personal information, or that becomes personal information if we combine it with other information. 

What are cookies?

Cookes are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website.   Cookies are widely used by nearly all websites in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.

Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Sussex Bee Farm) are called “first party cookies”.  Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”.   Third part cookies enable third-party features of functionality to be provided on or through the website (eg. Advertising, interactive content, and analytics).   The parties that set these third-party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

Why do we use cookies?

We use first and third party cookies for several reasons.    Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our website to operate.   These are “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies.    These cookies are operated by our website host Wix.com and we have no control over them.

This kind of information allows us to see if we need to redesign or add information to the website.     Third party cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience of our Online Properties (the website).    Third parties serve cookies through our Website for advertising, analytics, and other purposes.     For example, we can see how your IP address uses the website, eg, what pages you visit, and whether you use a mobile phone or desktop computer to access the website.

How do I control cookies?

You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies.   You can exercise your cookie rights by setting your preferences in the Cookie Consent Manager can be accessed via the pop up notification banner which pops up at the bottom of the screen on your first visit.      This manager allows you to select which categories of cookies you accept or reject.   Essential cookies cannot be rejected as they are strictly necessary to provide you with our services through a website.

If you choose to reject cookies you may find that some areas of the website may lose some functionality or may be restricted.   You may also set or amend your cookie preferences in your web browser, ie Google Chrome but you will still be asked to choose your cookie preferences on our website for GDPR purposes.

 

Our essential cookies:

Cookies may be added or withdrawn by Wix without our knowledge at a later date before any updates to this page.

What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?

Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website.   We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons.     This allows us, for example, to see how successful an email marketing campaign has been.   The website can see if you have clicked through from an email to a product page.    Email marketing is an essential part of our business and helps us grow.     These beacons also help you too.   When people do not open or click through from one of our emails we use it as feedback to improve our emails and/or product offerings.

Do you serve targeted advertising?

We do not use your data to serve targeted advertising on our website of third party products.

However, third parties may serve cookies on your computer or mobile device to serve advertising through our website.   What does this mean?    Google may register your interest in beekeeping and may show you adverts on their platform on this subject and related subjects from us or any other company they think you are interested in.  They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements.   They can accomplish this by using cookies or web beacons to collect information about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide relevant advertisement s about goods and services of potential interest to you.    The information collected through this process does not enable them or us to identify your name, contact details, or other details that directly identify you unless you choose to provide these.

How often do you update this cookie policy?

We may update this cookie policy from time to time in order to reflect changes to the cookies we use or for other operation, legal, or regulatory reasons, and any other reason.   Please therefore revisit this cookie policy regularly to stay informed about our use of cookies and related technologies.
