Privacy

Whiston Solutions is committed to safeguarding your privacy online.  We use the information we collect about you to help us understand more about how our site is used and to be able to send you communications about Whiston Solutions that may be of interest to you, either electronically or otherwise.  The "personally identifiable information" is information that enables us to identify you, such as your email address, name, title, and address.

Please read the following policy to understand how your personal information will be treated.  This policy may change from time to time so please check back periodically.

  1. What personally identifiable information does Whiston Solutions collect from me?

    Like many websites, Whiston Solutions uses cookies in order to provide you with a more personalised web service.

    A cookie is a text-only string of information that we pass to your computer's hard disk through your web-browser so that the website can remember who you are.  Cookies cannot be used by themselves to identify you.  A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the "lifetime" of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number.  For more information about cookies, please see www.allaboutcookies.org.

    We use two types of cookies on our website:

    • Session cookies, which are temporary cookies that remain in the cookies file of your browser until you leave the site.

    • Persistent cookies, which remain in the cookies file of your browser for longer (although how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie).  These cookies are used to store state information between visits to a site.  We use persistent cookies to provide services so that you do not have to log-in repeatedly between visits.

    If you do not wish to receive cookies you can easily modify your web browser to refuse cookies, or to notify you when you receive a new cookie.  However, you may not be able to use all the interactive features of our site if cookies are disabled, and so in order to enjoy the Whiston Solutions site to the full, we recommend that you leave them switched on.

    For instructions on how to stop cookies being installed on your browser, please see www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies.
