What are cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of text sent by your web browser by a website you visit. A cookie file is stored in your web browser and allows the Service or a third-party to recognize you and make your next visit easier and the Service more useful to you.
Cookies can be “persistent” or “session” cookies.
A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to the website or interact with our services without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by IT Services at CAS Ltd when you return to the website. Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).
When you use and access the Service, we may place a number of cookies files in your web browser.
We may use persistent cookies for the following purposes:
- to provide Google analytics of the site so that we can see how you are using our website by tracking which pages you visit, what devices you access them from, how long you stayed on the website for, plus much more (if setup and Installed).
- Human verification to protect the site against co-ordinated hacking attempts
- to assist in the login process of the Suffolkonline.net webmail (https://webmail.suffolkonline.net) facility
We also use some session cookies on the SuffolkOnline.net webmail facility (https://webmail.suffolkonline.net). We use some session cookies on the main Suffolkonline.net website but none of these result in any tracking.
- Language cookie – remembers language preferences which expire at the end of a session
- Authentication cookie – remembers if you are logged in or not and expires after 7 days.
