Cookies Policy

Last updated May 2018

This policy sets out what cookies are, how the Point.51 website uses them, and your options relating to their use.

What are “cookies”?

When services are delivered on the internet, it sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, such as your computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies.

A cookie is a small piece of information sent from a website to your computer to help recognise your device in order to improve your browsing experience. If you prefer not to accept a cookie, you can still navigate the website like a normal user. Any information gathered through the use of cookies is compiled on an aggregate, anonymous basis.

Which cookies are used on the Point.51 website?

The Point.51 website runs on the Squarespace platform. Squarespace places cookies on visitors’ browsers to help the Point.51 site run effectively, provide the best experience for visitors, and provide information on website traffic.

Do I have to agree to cookies?

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can change your browser settings to prevent this. However, you may not be able to take full advantage of a website if you do so. You can find information on each browser's cookie settings here. Cookies are specific to the server that created them and cannot be accessed by other servers, which means they cannot be used to track your movements around the web. If you do not change your browser settings and continue to use the Point.51 website, Point.51 will infer that you have consented to the use of cookies for the purposes set out in this policy.

Where can I get more information?
