What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files placed on a computer during a visit to a website. They allow a website to establish a relationship with a computer and to recognise that computer on extended or subsequent visits. Cookies may be used to maintain a record of page views or purchases, and they may also be used to determine which links a visitor follows when leaving a site.
What Cookies are collected?
The Dedalus Press uses only such cookies that allow the full and proper functioning of its ecommerce website. Where we request and collect personal information, such as name and address for the dispatch of purchases, we do not share such details with any third party. (We do not at any stage have access to the personal financial details of our visitors. Instead we recognise that financial security is better left to one of the world’s major and most respected ecommerce companies, PayPal.)
Where cookies are used to collect statistical information about the site and its users (visits to pages, clicks on individual links) these cookies shall be understood to collect no personal details and are implemented solely to help us improve the functionality of the website for all its visitors. The statistical analysis of website organisation provided by Google Analytics is perhaps the best known example of this form of cookie.
A third form of cookie relates to the pages the visitor proceeds to, having decided to move on from the Dedalus Press website. Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites, for instance, collect their own cookies, the details of which are not shared with Dedalus Press and must be examined on those third party sites.
Dedalus Press is at all times committed to best practice and takes the privacy of its visitors and readers seriously. If you should have any concerns about any aspect of this Policy, do not hesitate to get in touch.
