cookie policy

The ethical move uses only strictly necessary cookies.

 

Without those cookies, our website would not work. So they can’t be deactivated.

The cookies set by our website include four WordPress cookies and one Cloudflare cookie.

Three of our WordPress cookies are “Commenter’s Cookies”:

  • comment_author_{HASH}
  • comment_author_email_{HASH}
  • comment_author_url_{HASH}

When you comment on our blog, these cookies will be stored on your computer. This makes sure you don’t need to re-type all your information again when you want to leave another comment.

They’re set to expire after a little less than one year from the time they’re set.

Cloudflare is a performance and security system that keeps our site safe and fast. This cookie doesn’t track you. It anonymizes IP addresses, so it doesn’t store any personal information. Cloudflare is moving away from this cookie in May/June 2021.

Our analytics system does not use cookies. It doesn’t track your IP address. We’re happy that we don’t have to collect personal information to understand how people interact with our website — and make improvements.

Our Instagram plugin retrieves our posts from instagram, copies them to our server and renders the data from these local copies. That way, no Instagram cookies are downloaded to your browser.

 

Hold on, what is a cookie?

A ‘cookie’ is a piece of information that is stored on your computer’s hard drive. It records how you move your way around a website. When you revisit that website, the website can present tailored options based on the information stored about your last visit. Cookies can also be used to analyse traffic and for advertising and marketing purposes.

Nearly all websites use cookies, and they do not harm your system. But they do track your way around the internet. And you might prefer to browse without companies “looking over your shoulder” all the time.

If you find the over-use of cookies a bit creepy or even worrying, we feel you!

You can check and change what types of cookies you accept within your browser settings. You can block cookies at any time by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including the strictly necessary ones), you may not be able to access all or parts of our site.

Different types of cookies explained

Session cookies

These are only stored on your computer during your web session and are automatically deleted when you close your browser. They usually store an anonymous session ID, but they do not collect any personal data from your computer. They allow you to browse a website without having to log in to each page.

Persistent cookies

A persistent cookie remains stored on your computer when you close your web browser. The cookie can be read by the website that created it when you visit that website again.

Cookies can also be categorised as follows:  

Strictly necessary cookies

These cookies are essential so you can use the website effectively, such as when buying a product and / or service. That’s why they can’t be turned off. Without these cookies, the services available to you on our website don’t work. These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you have been on the internet.

Performance cookies

These cookies enable companies to monitor and improve the performance of their websites. For example, they allow them to count visits, identify traffic sources and see which parts of the site are most popular.

Functionality cookies

These cookies allow a website to remember choices you make and provide enhanced features. For instance, the website may be able to provide you with news or updates relevant to the services you use. These cookies may also be used to provide services you have requested, such as viewing a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect is usually anonymized.
