How does the Frogmore website use cookies?

There are currently two ways we are using cookies on our website, the first is the login section (also known as ‘FREP’ or ‘Investors Area’). This is an area of the website that investors use and it requires them to login to ensure only investors are given access to the information within this section. To ensure users are authorised to access the content a cookie is created when they enter a username and password, this allows the website to check if they are an authorised user. We also use cookies for the Google Analytics code that we have installed. This code allows us to track visitor numbers to the website as well as information on the visitor trends, for example, the number of people who leave the website without visiting additional pages. This information is used to improve the website so that it can best meet the needs of its users. The information collected is anonymous and cannot be used to identify individual users.

How can cookies be removed?

If you do not wish to receive cookies when visiting websites the browsers settings can be updated to reject requests by websites to set cookies. However, it is important to note that some websites may have limited functionality without the ability to set cookies and others may stop working altogether. If cookies are disabled on our website the login area will not be able to authenticate a user and, as a result, access to this area of the website will be disabled.
