!Audacious Church Cookie Policy

This page is here to show that we comply with the EU Directive on cookies.

Our website uses cookies, as almost all websites do, to help provide you with the best experience we can. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer or mobile phone when you browse websites

What are cookies?

Cookies are pieces of information that a website places on your device when you visit a website. Cookies may involve the transmission of information from us to you and from you directly to us, to another party on our behalf, or to another party in accordance with its privacy policy. We may use cookies to bring together information we collect about you. You can choose to have your device warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings. If you turn cookies off, you won’t have access to many features that make your guest experience more efficient and some of our services will not function properly. Please see the last section of this Cookies Policy for more information about how to manage or disable browser cookies.

We use several categories of cookies and each performs different functions. You can learn more about cookies and their functions generally by visiting an information website like allaboutcookies.org.

Our cookies help us:

Make our website work as you’d expect
Remember your settings during and between visits
Improve the speed/security of the site
Allow you to share pages with social networks
Continuously improve our website for you
Make our marketing more efficient (ultimately helping us to offer the service we do at the price we do)

We do not use cookies to:

Collect any personally identifiable information (without your express permission)
Collect any sensitive information (without your express permission)
Pass data to advertising networks
Pass personally identifiable data to third parties

You can learn more about all the cookies we use below.

If the settings on your software that you are using to view this website (your browser) are adjusted to accept cookies, we take this, and your continued use of our website, to mean that you are fine with this. Should you wish to remove or not use cookies from our site you can learn how to do this below, however doing so will likely mean that our site will not work as you would expect.

We use cookies to make our website work, including:

Remembering your search settings
There is no way to prevent these cookies being set other than to not use our site.
So you can easily “like” or share our content on the likes of Facebook and Twitter, we have included sharing buttons on our site.

Cookies are set by:

Facebook Social Plugin Widgets – Share This provide us with lots of sharing buttons all in one neat package
The privacy implications on this will vary from social network to social network and will be dependent on the privacy settings you have chosen on these networks.

We use cookies to compile visitor statistics such as how many people have visited our website, what type of technology they are using (e.g. Mac or Windows, which in turn helps to identify when our site isn’t working as it should for particular technologies), how long they spend on the site, what page they look at and so on. This helps us to continuously improve our website. These so called “analytics” programmes also tell us, on an anonymous basis, how people reached this site (e.g. from a search engine) and whether they have been here before, helping us to put more money into developing our services for you instead of marketing spend.

We use:

Google Anaytics – this gathers anonymous data about visitors using this site and then provides us with visitor statistics, details of page views, and so on. You can think of it as being a bit like CCTV but one that automatically blurs your face so we can see what people have done, but not who has done it. If you are anti-Google you can opt-out of being tracked by Google Analytics at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout (although we’d prefer you didn’t, as this data is seriously helpful to us in improving our website).

You can usually switch off cookies by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies (Learn how here). Doing so however will likely limit the functionality of our’s and a large proportion of the world’s websites as cookies are a standard part of most modern websites.

It may be that your concerns around cookies relate to so called “spyware”. Rather than switching off cookies in your browser you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive. Learn more about managing cookies with antispyware software.
