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 (such as in a Shopping Basket), and they may also be used to determine which links a visitor uses to leave the Dedalus Press website, helping us to understand what is of most interest to our visitors.
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 data with any third party. (In respect of online payments, we have implemented state-of-the-art SSL encryption across our entire site, and all payments are handled securely by either of two of the most respected ecommerce companies in the business, namely PayPal and Stripe. At no time do we have access to our customers’ financial or credit card details.)
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 information 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 and allows us to see which pages generate the most interest among our visitors.
A third form of cookie relates to the pages a visitor proceeds to, having decided to move on from the Dedalus Press website. Links on the Dedalus Press site to sites such as Facebok and Twitter allow us to see which of these links is most successful or useful. It does not allow us to see where our visitors go after following those links.
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.
