COOKIES POLICY

This site, like many others, uses small files called cookies to help us customise your experience. Find out more about cookies and how you can control them.

What are ‘cookies’?

‘Cookies’ are small text files that are stored by the browser (for example, Internet Explorer or Safari) on your computer or mobile phone. They allow websites to store things like user preferences.

How does Lizzo’s website use cookies?

A visit to a page on Lizzo’s website may generate the following types of cookie:

  • Site performance cookies
  • Anonymous analytics cookies
  • Geotargetting cookies
  • Registration cookies
  • Advertising cookies
  • Third party advertising cookies

Site performance cookies

This type of cookie remembers your preferences for tools found on Lizzo’s website, so you don’t have to re-set them each time you visit.

Anonymous analytics cookies:

Every time someone visits our website, software provided by another organisation generates an ‘anonymous analytics cookie’.
These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before.
Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies and, if you don’t, we generate new ones.
This allows us to track how many individual users we have, and how often they visit the site.
Unless you are signed in to Lizzo’s website, we cannot use these cookies to identify individuals. We use them to gather statistics, for example, the number of visits to a page. If you are logged in, we will also know the details you gave to us for this, such as your username and email address.

Geotargetting cookies

These cookies are used by software which tries to work out what country you are in from the information supplied by your browser when you click on a web page. This cookie is completely anonymous, and we only use it to help target our content.

Registration cookies

When you register with Lizzo’s website, we generate cookies that let us know whether you are signed in or not.
Our servers use these cookies to work out which account you are signed in with, and if you are allowed access to a particular service. It also allows us to associate any comments you post with your username.
If you have not selected ‘keep me signed in’, your cookies get deleted when you either close your browser or shut down your computer.
While you are signed into either of the sites, we combine information from your registration cookies with analytics cookies, which we could use to identify which pages you have seen on Lizzo’s website.

Advertising cookies

These cookies allow us to know whether or not you’ve seen an advert or a type of advert, and how long it is since you’ve seen it.
We also use cookies to help us use targeted advertising. We may use cookies set by another organization so we can more accurately target advertising to you. We also set anonymous cookies on certain other sites that we advertise on. If you receive one of those cookies, we may then use it to identify you as having visited that site if you later visit Lizzo’s website. We can then target our advertising based on this information.

Third party advertising cookies

A lot of the advertisements you see on Lizzo’s website are provided by other organisations. Some of these organisations use their own anonymous cookies to track how many people have seen a particular ad, or to track how many people have seen it more than once.
The companies that generate these cookies have their own privacy policies, and we have no access to read or write these cookies. These organizations may use their cookies to anonymously target advertising to you on other websites, based on your visit to Lizzo’s website.

Other third party cookies

On some pages of our website, other organisations may also set their own anonymous cookies. They do this to track the success of their application, or to customise the application for you. Because of how cookies work, our website cannot access these cookies, nor can the other organisation access the data in cookies we use on our website.
How do I turn cookies off?

It is usually possible to stop your browser accepting cookies, or to stop it accepting cookies from a particular website. However, we cannot tell if you are signed in without using cookies, so you would not be able to post comments.
All modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. You can usually find these settings in the ‘options’ or ‘preferences’ menu of your browser.
