What is a Cookie?

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers downloaded onto a device (such as your computer or mobile device) when the user accesses or signs up to certain websites. Cookies allow a website to recognise a user’s device, and are legitimately used by many websites that include user login/registration as part of their service. However some websites may use harmful Cookies, or misuse the data gathered.

What’s New?

As from the 26th May 2011, a change in the law (UK) means that all websites using Cookies as part of their service must outline what their Cookies are used for, and get the consent of the site user before they use the site. This is to make sure users understand what Cookies a site may be using and why, and help protect users from misuse.

Monkeyplate uses only a ‘session’ Cookie - as part of its service to ensure certain functions of the site work correctly – to identify registered users by name, email, password and IP address each time they log into the Monkeyplate website. Without this type of Cookie in use, the site will not function correctly. We do not use third-party or tracking Cookies, and we will only use a Cookie as part of the functionality of our website.
