Website Cookies

We are delighted to confirm that according to our interpretation of the current guidance from the ICO (the Information Commissioners Office) & recent GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) legislation that all websites by Toolkit Websites LTD that do not use third party tracking or analytic services are compliant, as standard, with EU Cookie Laws.

Statements and the information provided across our website about GDPR is based on our interpretation of the legislation. It is not legal advice. For concrete legal advice, you may wish to talk to a solicitor.

Absolutely Necessary Cookies

As standard all of our websites only create two Cookies and these cookies are ‘Absolutely Necessary’ for the functioning of your website. These cookies are ‘ASP.NET_SessionId’ and "JSESSIONID". ‘ASP.NET_SessionId’ stores a ‘Session ID’ which is used by Microsoft .NET Framework to deliver the web pages to the visitor.

These cookies expire at the end of sessions which is when a visitor goes to another website or closes their browser window.

Because they does not remain on your computer it has no way of tracking your website usage or retaining any of your data post expiry. This means consent is not required.

Cookie Names: ASP.NET_SessionId, JSESSIONID

Google Analytics

Many of our clients use Google Analytics to track visitors and measure traffic to their website.  You are able to add the Google Analytics code directly to your website and start collecting data right away.  We understand that the ICO do not view Google Analytics cookies as intrusive and they do not require ‘explicit consent’ from websites who use these cookies. We recommend updating your Privacy Policy or adding your own Cookie Policy to the footer of your website to confirm what you as a firm do with the data your Google Analytics collects.
Cookie Names: _utma / _utmb / _utmc / _utmz

Other Cookies and Tracking

Since we give our clients full control of their websites using The Toolkit it is entirely possible for you to add your own more powerful cookies and tracking code to the website, should you wish. In this case we cannot confirm that your website will comply with the new GDPR legislation or existing EU Cookie Law.

GDPR legislation states that 'Natural persons may be associated with online identifiers…such as internet protocol addresses, cookie identifiers or other identifiers…. This may leave traces which, in particular when combined with unique identifiers and other information received by the servers, may be used to create profiles of the natural persons and identify them.'

This means that those who use third party cookies have the potential to identify a users information so as such, if you do have third party services who use Cookies, consent may be required before collecting and storing such data.
