Cookies Policy

For our website, we collect information automatically and through the use of electronic tools including cookies.  For example, we may log information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type for system administration. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and we do not use this to identify any individual.

What are cookies

Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive. They are common practice with almost all professional websites, and help us to improve our site and to deliver a better and more personalised service.

How do we use cookies

The cookies we use enable us:

• To estimate our audience size and usage pattern

There are two main types of cookies, both of which are used by Pritchards:

• Session cookies – allow websites to link the actions of a user during a browser session. Session cookies expire after a browser session so would not be stored longer term.
• Persistent cookies – are stored on a users’ device in between browser sessions which allows the preferences or actions of the user across a site (or in some cases across different websites) to be remembered.
