What are 'cookies'? '
Cookies' are small text files that are stored by the browser (for example, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome or Safari) on your computer or mobile phone. They allow websites to store things like user preferences. You can think of cookies as providing a 'memory' for the website, so that it can recognise you when you come back and respond appropriately.
A visit to a page on FlipYourCup.com may generate the following types of cookie:
This type of cookie allows the website to remember your user options such as username, language or region, in order to provide improved and personalized features. They can also be used to provide services requested by the user, such as viewing videos or social media integration. The information collected by these cookies can be made anonymous and your browsing activity in other websites will not be monitored. If you do not allow these cookies, the performance and functionality of the site and your access to some of our services may be affected.
Site performance cookies
These are cookies collecting information about how you use the site; for example, what pages you visit most and if they get error messages. These cookies collect aggregated, anonymous information that does not identify you, the visitor. They are exclusively used to improve the performance of a website.
Anonymous analytics cookies
Every time someone visits our website, software provided by another organisation generates an 'anonymous analytics cookie'. These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before. Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies and, if you don't, we generate new ones. This allows us to track how many individual users we have, and how often they visit the site.
Other third party cookies
On some pages of our website, other organisations may also set their own anonymous cookies. They do this to track the success of their application, or to customise the application for you. Because of how cookies work, our website cannot access these cookies, nor can the other organisation access the data in cookies we use on our website. For example, when you share an article using a social-media sharing button (for example, Facebook) on FlipYourCup.com, the social network that has created the button will record that you have done this. Paypal also is using cookies, absolutely necesssary for the transaction integration.
How do I turn cookies off?
It is usually possible to stop your browser accepting cookies, or to stop it accepting cookies from a particular website. However, we cannot tell if you are signed in without using cookies, so you would not be able to post comments. All modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. You can usually find these settings in the 'options' or 'preferences' menu of your browser.
