Cookie Policy

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files used by websites to make your experience more efficient. European law states that we can store cookies on your device when they are essential to the operation of this site but that you need to consent to the storing of other cookies.

Essential cookies

The Space uses a ‘PHP session cookie’, which remembers your actions between one web page and the next, for example to confirm that you have submitted a form. This cookie expires when you close your browser. By continuing to use this site you agree to this cookie being stored on your device.

Google analytics cookies

We use Google Analytics, a popular web analytics service provided by Google, Inc.

Google Analytics uses cookies to collect information about how visitors use our site. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the site. The cookies collect information in an anonymous form, including the number of visitors to the site, where visitors have come to the site from and the pages they visited.

We also use the Demographic and Interest Reporting that forms part of Google Analytics’ Advertising Features on our site. We do not display advertising to visitors to our site but we do use these reports to better understand and serve visitors to our website.

How google’s demographic and interest reporting works

When someone visits a website that has partnered with the Google Display Network, Google stores a number in their browsers using a cookie to remember their visits. This number uniquely identifies a web browser on a specific computer, not a specific person. Browsers may be associated with certain interests or a demographic category, such as gender, age range, or parental status, based on the sites that were visited.

In addition, some sites provide Google with demographic or interest information that people share on sites such as social networking sites and Google makes use of demographics derived from Google profiles.

You can find out how to change settings relating to Google Analytics Advertising Features here

If you do not wish analytics cookies to be stored on your device, you can opt out of Google cookies
