What are “cookies”?

“Cookies” (also known as HTTP cookies, web cookies or browser cookies) are simply small pieces of data, which are stored as text files on your computer, whenever you visit certain websites. Their typical purpose is to help sites remember particular actions you may have done there in the past. For example, cookies may track when you have logged into a site, visited certain pages or clicked certain buttons.

Websites maintained by Sharon Kaplan Photography use cookies to improve your user experience. In many cases, cookies are even essential for certain features of a site.

For example, we use cookies to:

  • Remember your user preferences, searches and favourites.
  • Track your usage of a site, via Google Analytics©.
  • Track the success of our marketing campaigns.

Are cookies harmful?

Cookies cannot harm you or your computer. They cannot contain viruses, cannot install harmful software and cannot damage your computer in any way. Although Sharon Kaplan Photography uses cookies to gather encrypted information to improve your user experience, this information is never personally identifiable. We do not use cookies to store any sensitive information, such as name, address or contact details.

Despite this, if you do wish to disable or remove cookies, please see the “Help” section of your browser or mobile device. Each browser or device handles the management of cookies differently, so you will need to refer to your appropriate “Help” documentation. However, as mentioned, please be aware that cookies are essential for certain features of a Sharon Kaplan Photography site to work properly.

What cookies do we use and why?

The following shows the full list of platform cookies used throughout Sharon Kaplan Photography websites.

 

Use of Google Analytics

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies,” i.e. text files that are stored on your device, enabling us to track and analyse your visit to our website.

 

You can prevent the storage of cookies on your device by changing the settings of your browser soft­ware accordingly; however, we point out that in this case you may not be able to fully use all functions on our website. Furthermore, you have the option of disabling the tracking of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as processing of this data by Google, if you download and install the browser add-on available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

Google Tag Manager

Google Tag Manager is a solution that enables us to manage various website tags via a single interface. The Tag Manager tool itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-less domain and does not collect any personal data. The tool triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data under certain circumstances. Google Tag Manager does not access these data. If deactivation occurs at domain or cookie level, it remains in use for all tracking tags, which are implemented by Google Tag Manager.

Therefore, you may be presented with cookies from this service when you visit a Sharon Kaplan Photography page.
