What are cookies?

In order for this site to work properly and to evaluate and improve the site we, and other organisations, may collect information by using small files and other tracking technologies on your computer (for simplicity we refer to all such technologies as “cookies”). Over 90% of all websites do this. 

Cookie information is stored in your browser and performs functions such as recognising you when you return to our website. When you visit the site, your PC checks to see if it has a cookie that the website recognises. If it has such a cookie, it communicates with the website and enables the website to read the information held in that cookie. It also enables us to understand which sections of the website you find most interesting and useful.

By continuing to use this site, you agree to us and third-party organisations using cookies as outlined. You can opt out of the use of cookies, though please bear in mind that if you do the performance of our site may be affected. There are a variety of cookies used on DMSL websites, mostly to improve the user experience and help us tailor content to visitor needs.

Third party cookies

Third-party cookies are those created by other websites. For example, some of our web pages may contain content from other sites such as YouTube or Flickr. Third-party cookies are created by these websites and are mainly used for tracking and online-advertising. If you share a link to another website that may also create a third-party cookie on your browser.

Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics to collect anonymous information such as the number of visitors to our website and the most popular pages. We use Google Analytics to track anonymous data about visitors that use our site. This is to help us improve usability and deliver relevant content. When you visit the at800, SRN or DMSL website, your visit is tracked as a session. A Google Analytics user ID code is generated at each session. DMSL will disassociate the user ID from the session after 14 months.

Controlling and deleting cookies

If you would like to change how a browser uses cookies, including blocking or deleting the cookies on our website (or any other website in fact), you can do so by changing the browser settings. 

To control cookies, most browsers allow you to either accept or reject all cookies, only accept certain types of cookies, or prompt you every time a site wishes to save a cookie. It’s also easy to delete cookies that are already saved on your device. 

The processes for controlling and deleting cookies vary depending on which browser you use. To find out how to do so with a particular browser, visit http://www.aboutcookies.org which explains, step-by-step, how to control and delete cookies in most browsers.

Most browsers will enable you to manage your cookies preferences e.g., have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie or use it to disable cookies altogether. If you do decide to disable or delete them altogether some sites will not work as well as they rely on cookies to provide you with the services you have requested.
