Our website uses ‘cookies’ 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.

The GiGL Website use “cookies” to help you personalise your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a webpage server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise GiGL pages, or register with the GiGL site or services, a cookie helps GiGL to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. When you return to the same GiGL Website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the GiGL features that you customised.
Measuring website usage (Google Analytics)
Google Analytics stores information about:
- the pages you visit on gigl.org.uk
- how long you spend on each gigl.org.uk page
- how you got to the site
- what you click on while you’re visiting the site
We do not collect or store your personal information (for example your name or address) when using Google Analytics so this information can’t be used to identify who you are.
We do not allow Google to use or share our analytics data.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the GiGL services or websites you visit.
We suggest consulting the Help section of your browser or taking a look at the About Cookies website which offers guidance for all modern browsers.
