Like most other websites, we use “cookies” in order to provide you with the best possible experience when you visit it. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer when you visit a web page. They can have many purposes, and among other things may be used to store your preferences, to keep you logged into a website, or to collect visitor statistics – e.g. finding out how many users viewed the site and the pages they accessed.

Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting, or by third parties who provide content that is embedded upon the site – such as YouTube videos. Some cookies are deleted automatically when you close your browser, others remain for longer periods – e.g. to retain any website preferences you have set on previous occasions.

By visiting the Teepee Day Nursery website you consent to cookies being stored on your computer or device. If you wish, you can disable cookies via your browser settings. However, some website functionality may not work as expected.

What Cookies Are Used on the Teepee Day Nursery Website?

Below are more details about the cookies that are stored when you visit the Teepee Day Nursery site. These are laid out in the four categories suggested by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC).

Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, services you have asked for, like shopping baskets or e-billing, cannot be provided.

“Strictly Necessary” cookies include PHPSESSID, wordpress_test_cookie, wordpress_sec_#, wordpress_logged_in_# and wp-settings-time-202. They are set by Teepee Day Nursery. These cookies are used to keep track of your session if you log into the “MyChild” area, to ensure you are shown the correct details that relate to your child. This part of the website will not function correctly if these cookies are not stored. For more information, please visit our privacy policy.

Performance Cookies

These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies do not collect information that identifies a visitor. All information that these cookies collect is aggregated and is therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works.

“Performance” cookies include __utma, __utmb,  __utmc and __utmz. They are set by Google Analytics. We use Google Analytics to collect general statistics about website users – such as the number of visitors, most popular pages accessed, typical time spent on the site, broad geographic location of users, details of any errors experienced etc. In turn, this data is used by us to improve the website – e.g. to improve the site navigation or to create new content that is likely to be popular with visitors. For more information, please visit Google’s resources on analytics cookies.

Functionality Cookies

These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are located. These cookies can be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog.

‘Functionality’ cookies include comment_author, comment_author_email and comment_author_url, which are set by Teepee Day Nursery. These cookies are stored if you leave a comment on our blog. This is purely for the purposes of storing your name, email address, and URL so that you do not have to re-enter them on future occasions. They are not used for any other purpose. For more information, please visit the WordPress cookie resources.

For maps functionality, cookies include NID, SNID, khcookie, testcookie and PREF. These cookies are set by Google Maps, and are stored when you visit the “Contact Us” page, which includes an embedded Google Map. For more information, please visit Google’s privacy resources.

Targeting or Advertising Cookies

These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as to help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers.

How Can I Prevent Cookies From Being Stored?

Depending on your browser, you can choose to prevent specific websites from setting cookies, or prevent all websites from storing cookies.
