GroupBuzz and cookies
Most of the websites you visit will store tiny text files on your computer when you visit them, so that the site can remember things about you the next time you visit. These text files are known as "cookies".
Cookies can be put to all sorts of different uses, including: remembering if a visitor has logged in so they can access private areas of a website; remembering visitors' specific preferences and settings; tracking what pages of a website visitors are browsing to.
As well as the cookies this website sets on your computer, some other websites can also set cookies whilst you browse GroupBuzz. This is through embedded third-party content, from places like Facebook or Twitter.
What cookies does GroupBuzz set?
We have split our cookies into three categories: strictly essential; website information; and third-party.
- Strictly essential - cookies are used for identifying members who have logged in and out of the GroupBuzz members area. When the member closes their browser, the cookies are deleted.
- Website information - both GroupBuzz and their host GroupBuzz Ltd set cookies for the purposes of recording anonymous information about visitors to the website. This information is used to monitor where visitors come from, which pages and features are popular, and ultimately to deliver an improved service to visitors.
Controlling cookies from GroupBuzz?
Some people find the idea of websites setting cookies intrusive. If you want to restrict all or certain cookies, you can do so through your browser settings. Instructions of how to do so will vary from browser to browser, but you can find out more at www.aboutcookies.org.
Some browsers have a Do Not Track option which allows you to tell websites you don't want your browsing behaviour and patterns tracked, but to still accept those cookies websites class as strictly essential. More information about Do Not Track can be found at donottrack.us.
You can set your preferences with GroupBuzz and manage exactly which cookies you do or don't permit to be set on your computer or phone.
GroupBuzz should still work if you disable cookies, but some features and functionality may be lost if you do so. Also, remember that you will have to adjust the cookie settings for each browser and device that you visit GroupBuzz with (eg, your home computer, work computer, mobile phone etc).
