What are Cookies?
Cookies are small data files placed on your computer or other internet-enabled device that enable our features and functionality. They allow us to record information when you visit or interact with our websites (collectively, our “Websites”).
What kinds of cookies and tracking technologies do we use?
Persistent and Session Cookies
We use two categories of cookies: Persistent cookies and session cookies. Persistent cookies are cookies that help us recognise you. They are stored on your device in between browser sessions, allowing us to remember your preferences and actions across multiple sites and on multiple visits. Session cookies expire at the end of your browser session, allowing us to link your actions during a particular browsing session.
Third Party Cookies
We use Google Analytics which is a web analytics tool that helps us understand how users engage with our Websites. Like many services, Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to track user interactions as in our case, where they are used to collect information about how users use our Website. This information is used to compile reports and to help us improve our Websites. The reports disclose website trends without identifying individual visitors.
CookieBot – Cookie Compliance
To ensure we meet guidelines for ‘Cookie Transparency’, DOCH has chosen to use a 3rd party (known as: Cookiebot) to conduct this service. View their declaration Cookie Statement.
How Can I Control Cookies?
If you opt out of receiving certain cookies from us, your web browser will be associated with a generic “opt-out” cookie, which will prevent us from associating any non-personal information with your browser. Our “opt-out” cookie has no expiration date. Since this program is cookie-based, you may need to opt out again if you do any of the following:
Delete your cookies;
Block cookies, including third party cookies;
Switch internet browsers;
Change computers; or
Upgrade your web browser.
Internet browsers allow you to change your cookie settings via the “options’ or “preferences” menu in your browser. Please note that if you set your browser to refuse or block all cookies, certain features or functionalities of our Websites will be limited or unavailable to you.
Some internet browsers include the ability to transmit “do not track” signals. Because no industry standard has yet been developed with respect to “do not track,” our Websites do not currently process or respond to such “do not track” signals.
Some internet browsers may offer their own management tools for removing HTML5 and other Local Storage Objects.
