Cookie Policy

South Devon Choir’s website is powered by WordPress and runs on their servers.  We also use Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to communicate with our members and supporters.

Cookies are small text files stored on your computer by your browser. They’re used for many things, such as remembering whether you’ve visited the site before, so that you remain logged in – or to help us work out how many new website visitors we get each month. They contain information about the use of your computer but don’t include personal information about you (they don’t store your name, for instance).

This policy explains how cookies are used by South Devon Choir on its website and social media sites – and, how you can control the cookies.

About this Cookie policy

Any changes to this policy will be posted here. We reserve the right to vary this Cookie Policy from time to time and such changes shall become effective as soon as they are posted. Your continued use of the Website constitutes your agreement to all such changes.

Our use of cookies

We may collect information automatically when you visit the Website, using cookies.

The information collected by cookies does not personally identify you; it includes general information about your computer settings, your connection to the Internet e.g. operating system and platform, IP address, your browsing patterns and timings of browsing on the Website and your location.

You can choose not to allow cookies. If you do, we can’t guarantee that your experience with the Website will be as good as if you do allow cookies.

Types of cookie that may be used during your visit to the Website:

The following types of cookie are used on this site. We don’t list every single cookie used by name – but for each type of cookie we tell you how you can control its use.

1. Personalisation cookies

These cookies are used to recognise repeat visitors to the Website and to record specific browsing information about the way you arrive at the Website and pages you view.

2. Analytics cookies

These monitor how visitors move around the Website and how they reached it. This is used so that we can see total (not individual) figures on which types of content users enjoy most, for instance.

3. Third-party service cookies

We share information using WordPress, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and MailChimp.  We also process concert ticket payments via TicketSource. These companies may drop cookies on your computer when you use them on our social media sites or if you are already logged in to them.  Here is a list of places where you can find out more about specific services that we use and their use of cookies:

Advertisements on these sites are provided by the organisations listed above and they will serve advertisements that they believe are most likely to be of interest to you, based on information about your visit to the Website and other websites. In order to do this, these sites may need to place a cookie on your computer. These cookies hold information about the computer – they don’t hold personal information about you (ie it’s not linked to you as an individual).  Please note that turning off advertising cookies won’t mean that you are not served any advertising merely that it will not be tailored to your interests.

4. Site management cookies

These are used to maintain your identity or session on the Website. For instance, where our website runs on more than one server, we use a cookie to ensure that you are sent information by one specific server (otherwise you may log in or out unexpectedly).

These cookies cannot be turned off individually but you could change your browser setting to refuse all cookies (see above) if you do not wish to accept them.
