How do I use cookies and other tracking tools?

Cookies are small pieces of data stored on a site visitor's browser, usually used to keep track of their movements and actions on a site.  There are two types of cookies: 

 

Session (Transient or Temporary) cookies: These cookies are erased when you close your browser, and do not collect information from your computer. They typically store information in the form of a session identification that does not personally identify the user.

Persistent (Permanent or Stored) cookies: These cookies are stored on your hard drive until they expire (i.e. they are based on a set expiration date) or until you delete them. These cookies are used to collect identifying information about the user, such as Web surfing behaviour or user preferences for a specific site.

 

My website is hosted by Wix and as part of that hosting I understand that only session cookies are placed on your computer.

 

However, I also use Google Analytics so that I can find out if I have any visitors and if so how they behave on my site (for example which pages do they visit). These cookies collect information in an anonymous form, so I don’t know who is using the site. I use the information on how people use the website as feedback to help me improve the site. You can go to http://www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html to find out more about Google Analytics cookies and how to opt-out of them.


How do I delete cookies?
