Cookie Policy

How and why we use cookies

We use cookies on our site (allardconstruction.co.uk) to create the most secure and effective website possible for our users. We have always used cookies but, due to a change in legislation, all EU websites are now required to provide additional information on what cookies are, how they are used and what benefits they bring. This Cookie Policy answers these questions.

Please note that you are not currently required to do anything, other than read our Cookie Policy to understand these changes. The changes will not affect the way in which you currently use our website.

Brief overview

Allard Construction uses ‘analytics’ cookies to help us make our website better for those who visit it regularly. They help us work out what users like and don’t like, as well as ways we can improve the website and its content for you.

Cookies are used for a variety of other reasons, for example – to safeguard your privacy when browsing the site. Please note that our cookies do not store your personal information such as your name, address, telephone or email.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are sent to and stored on your computer, smartphone or other device for accessing the internet, whenever you visit a website. Cookies are useful because they allow us to offer a user experience on our website that is as smooth as possible. At Allard Construction, we mostly use analytics cookies to help us understanding users behaviour on our website, so that we can improve the online experience for you. Cookies can also be used for a variety of reasons, such as to remember preferences, let users navigate between pages efficiently, verify the user and for carrying out essential security checks. Some of the functions that cookies perform can also be achieved by using similar technologies. This policy refers to ‘cookies’ throughout, however it also includes these alternate mechanisms (e.g. Flash cookies or LSOs, also known as locally shared objects).

How to manage cookies

The browsers of most computers, smartphones and other web-enabled devices will typically accept cookies.

However, please remember that cookies are often used to enable and improve certain functions on our website. If you choose to switch certain cookies off, it is likely to affect how our website works and if you block cookies completely, many websites will not work properly and some functionality on these websites will not work at all.

This is very important because any settings that you change in your browser will not just affect Allard Construction cookies but will also apply to all websites that you visit (unless you choose to block cookies from particular sites).

Please remember that Allard Construction does not use cookies to collect personally identifiable information about you

Most modern browsers will allow you to:

• See the cookies that have been set and delete them on an individual basis.

If you wish to amend your cookie preferences for this website or any other websites, you can do this through your browser settings. Your browser’s ‘help’ function will tell you how to do this.

We recommend you read their policies, as Allard Construction is not responsible or liable for their privacy practices.
