Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer when you visit some websites. They are used to remember useful information that allows certain functionality to work, for example cookies can be used to remember if you're logged in or not. Cookies can't harm your computer, and are active for differing lengths of time, some are stored until you close your browser, while others may last for several weeks or more.

By default, cookies should be enabled on your computer or device. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.

DWASOnline uses cookies in the following ways.

1) We set two cookies which are essential to the smooth running of the website. One is a Session cookie that is there to help logged in users (administrators of the website) to navigate the backend of the website. For anonymous users this is never used and will disappear from your computer a month after your last visit to our website - unless you choose to delete it manually. The other is set to tell our website if you have Javascript enabled in your browser. This is used to allow our website to work more efficiently. It is deleted when you close your browser.

2) We also use Google Analytics as our chosen statistics package. This is industry standard statistics software that anonymously logs visits to our site. It sets four cookies that are used to collect information about how visitors use our site. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the site. The cookies collect information in an anonymous form, including the number of visitors to the site, how visitors have reached our site (search engine, link on another website, etc...) and how often pages have been visited.

DWASOnline never retain any personal details of our visitors nor do we have any third-party cookies or advertising cookies on our website.
