Cookies and Tracking Technology

A cookie is a small data file that certain websites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that the site uses to track the pages you’ve visited, but the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can’t read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Some parts of the Brick Development Association’s website use cookies to track user traffic patterns. We do this in order to determine the usefulness of our website information to our users and to see how effective our navigational structure is in helping users reach that information.

If you prefer not to receive cookies while browsing our website you need do nothing more than continue browsing. Each page will prompt you if you would like to give us permission to install temporary Google Analytics cookies. These do not store any of your personal details and are there purely to help us analyse the traffic to our website allowing us to deliver a better experience in the future.

If you are concerned about the use of cookies while browsing the web you can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies and refuse the cookie when your browser alerts you to its presence. You can also refuse all cookies by turning them off in your browser, although you may not be able to take full advantage of the Brick Development Association’s website (and others) if you do so. In particular, you may be required to accept cookies in order to complete certain actions on our website.
