About this cookie policy

This Cookie Policy explains what cookies are and how I use them. You should read this policy to understand what cookies are, how I use them, the types of cookies I use i.e, the information I collect using cookies and how that information is used and how to control the cookie preferences. For further information on how I use, store and keep your personal data secure, see the Privacy Policy.

You can at any time change or withdraw your consent from the Cookie Declaration on my website. Learn more about who I am, how you can contact me and how I process personal data in our Privacy Policy.
Your consent applies to the following domains: thecelticstoryteller.ie

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are used to store small pieces of information. The cookies are stored on your device when the website is loaded on your browser. These cookies help me to make the website perform and to analyse what works and what might need improvement.

How do I use cookies?

I don’t have any home made, or first-party, cookies on this website (unless I at some point post a picture of cookies I baked at home!) Third-party cookies on this website are used for functionality and analytics.

What types of cookies do I use?

Essential: The software I use to make the site work may have cookies and I have done my best to identify them.
The WordPress plugin I use to show the cookie consent option needs 4 cookies to run so these will be necessary cookies and will be saved to your machine even if you click Reject All. 

Analytics: I am in the process of setting up Google Analytics in order to see what pages get traffic and where that traffic is coming from (country). There are 2 cookies that will be saved to your machine if you click Accept.

How can I control the cookie preferences ?

Should you decide to change your preferences later through your browsing session, you can click on the “Privacy & Cookie Policy” tab on your screen. This will display the consent notice again enabling you to change your preferences or withdraw your consent entirely. 

In addition to this, different browsers provide different methods to block and delete cookies used by websites. You can change the settings of your browser to block/delete the cookies.
Unfortunately, if you have this enabled on your browser, I don’t think you can browse my site. From 5th October 2020 I must display the cookie consent option on my website and that is the first element on my site that actually used cookies (apart from Google Analytics currently removed until I can work out how to allow you to disable it as the plug in isn’t that clever.)
