Privacy and cookies
Most of the websites you visit will store tiny text files on your computer when you visit them, so that the site can remember things about you the next time you visit. These text files are known as “cookies”.
Cookies can be put to all sorts of different uses, including: remembering if a visitor has logged in so they can access private areas of a website; remembering visitors’ specific preferences and settings; tracking what pages of a website visitors are browsing to.
As well as the cookies this website sets on your computer, some other websites can also set cookies whilst you browse the site. This is through embedded third-party content, from places like Youtube, Facebook or Twitter.
What cookies does A Plus set?
We have split our cookies into three categories: strictly essential; website information; and third-party.
- Strictly essential – cookies are used for identifying administrative users who have logged in and out of the website admin interface. When the user closes their browser, the cookies are deleted.
- Website information – we set cookies for the purposes of recording anonymous information about visitors to the website. This information is used to monitor where visitors come from, which pages and features are popular, and ultimately to deliver an improved service to visitors.
Some people find the idea of websites setting cookies intrusive. If you want to restrict all or certain cookies, you can do so through your browser settings. Instructions of how to do so will vary from browser to browser, but you can find out more at www.aboutcookies.org.
Some browsers have a Do Not Track option which allows you to tell websites you don’t want your browsing behaviour and patterns tracked, but to still accept those cookies websites class as strictly essential. More information about Do Not Track can be found at donottrack.us.
The website should still work if you disable cookies, but some features and functionality may be lost if you do so. Also, remember that you will have to adjust the cookie settings for each browser and device that you visit the A Plus website with (eg, your home computer, work computer, mobile phone etc).
