Use of Cookies

MW2 Consulting may use cookies on our websites to improve performance and enhance your user experience. This policy explains generally how cookies work.

(a) What are Cookies?

A cookie is a small text file containing small amounts of information that a website puts on a user’s computer (or mobile device) when you visit a website and is used by the website to send information to your browser and for the browser to return information to the website.

–You can find more information about cookies at: www.allaboutcookies.org and www.youronlinechoices.eu. For a video about cookies please visit www.google.com/policies/technologies/cookies.

The information your browser sends to one of our websites is used for authentication and identification of your session and allows us to display the correct information on the website. We match the cookie against your details so we can distinguish you from other users as you browse the site, which helps us to provide you with a good user experience. Most browsers enable a user to disable cookies. If you do so, however, this site may not function correctly.

Logging: we record and store details of the pages visited so that we can generate usage statistics. Except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy, we do not sell or share any information gathered to other companies.

Cookie storage: This website uses cookies which are persistent and non-persistent (session-based). While many of the cookies used on this website only last for the duration of your use of this website (session-based cookies), other cookies are persistent, i.e., stay in one of your browser’s subfolders until you delete them manually or your browser deletes them.

(b) What types of cookies may be used here?

First party cookies – First party cookies are set by the website you are visiting and they can only be read by that site.

Session cookies – Session cookies are used by the server to store information about user page activities so users can easily pick up where they left off on the server’s pages. These are temporary cookie files, which are erased when you close your browser, and when you restart your browser and go back to the site that created the cookie, the website will not recognize you. You will have to log back in (if login is required) or select your preferences/themes again if the website uses these features. A new session cookie will be generated, which will store your browsing information and will be active until you leave the site and close your browser.

Persistent cookies – Persistent cookies are employed to store user preferences. These files stay in one of your browser’s subfolders until you delete them manually or your browser deletes them based on the duration period contained within the persistent cookie’s file. For Information on session and persistent cookies, see here.

Third party cookies – Third party cookies are set by a different organization to the owner of the website you are visiting. For example, the website might use a third party analytics company (e.g., Google Analytics) who will set their own cookies to perform this service.
