Use of cookies and other user statistics

Protecting our visitors is at the heart of all we do at Sweet Squared and protecting your information is no exception. This means that any cookies used on our site will not contain personally identifiable information about you.

However, we do use cookies on our websites to help make your visits more effective so we’d like to explain more about how and why we use them. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive while they are visiting a particular website. Most sites tend to use two types of cookies – session cookies that expire as soon as you leave the site and tracking cookies. We only use tracking cookies on our site, as explained below:

Tracking cookies: These enable us to recognise repeat visitors to our site. By matching an anonymous, randomly generated identifier, we’re able to record specific browsing information such as how you arrive at the site, the pages you view, options you select, and the path you take through the site. By monitoring this information we’re able to make improvements to our site. We use Google’s analytics software to analyse page use, page interactions and the routes our visitors take through our site. These are known as ‘web metrics’. No personal data or information is stored at any point during your visit.
