Introduction

At The Wind Section Ltd we want to make sure that the website we operate looks as good as possible but also is easy for you to use. To help us to do this, our website uses cookies.

Cookies help us to assess how you use our website and also how we can improve our website. This means we have the information we need to regularly evaluate whether our website really meets your needs. Some of the cookies we use improve the functionality of our website, so if you choose to disable cookies on your browser, you might find that you can't access some aspects of our website, or that parts of the website don't function in the way that you might expect them to.

This notice is designed to help you understand what cookies are, how The Wind Section Ltd uses them and the choices you have in regards to their use. By continuing to use www.thewindsection.com the “Site”, you are agreeing to our use of cookies in the manner described in this notice.

If you use the internet a lot, then you'll know what cookies are but if you're fairly new to internet shopping, then here's a little explanation . .

What Are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your browser, the hard drive of your computer, or other devices when you visit the Site. This allows the Site to recognise you as a user either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits ( a ‘persistent cookie’). They are not harmful and do not contain any information such as your home address, date of birth, or credit card details. The cookies we use fall into four broad types:

Strictly Necessary Cookies: These cookies are essential in helping you to move around our Site and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, services you have asked for, such as setting up an account cannot be provided. These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you've been on the internet.

Analytical/Performance Cookies: In order to keep the Site, its services, and products relevant, easy to use, and up-to-date, we use web analytics services to help us understand how people use our Site. For example, we can see which parts of the Site and products are most popular, identify when errors occur, and test different versions of a page or feature to see which one works best. We have a tracking pixel enabled in our email communications which helps us to understand how our customers interact with our emails. 

We want to ensure we’re sending you marketing emails with content you’ll love and this data helps us to tailor and improve those emails and other marketing materials.

Functionality Cookies: These cookies allow websites and applications to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language, or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. The information these cookies collect is usually anonymised which means we can't identify you personally. They do not gather any information about you that could be used for selling advertising or remembering where you've been on the internet, but do help us to serve you with advertising that is more relevant to you.

Targeted Marketing Cookies: We also use cookies to assist in targeted advertising. Without these cookies, online advertisements you encounter will be less relevant to you and your interests. We also use them to measure the effectiveness of our marketing communications, for example by telling us if you have responded to an advert that we have sent you.

If you would like more information on any of these types of Cookies, including how to opt-out, please visit www.youronlinechoices.com
