Cookie Policy

What are “Cookies”?

Cookies are small software files that are loaded automatically by many web sites onto your device when web pages are accessed. They are of two types: ‘long term’ and ‘session’.
Long term cookies remain active on your computer after a browser session has ended. They are often dated and expire after a set time has elapsed. They are, for example, often used to ‘remember’ log-in details; to save the user having to input usernames, etc. each time a web site is accessed.
Session cookies are short term; they only exist whilst you are browsing the site, are not used to collect information, do not ‘track’ your browsing and expire as soon as you leave the web site ‘session’. They are renewed each time you re-access a web site. Session cookies are used to manage authentication, navigation and other functions you need in order to enjoy modern web sites.

Use of Cookies on the Association site

This site places only one long term cookie, which is used to ‘remember’ (for 30 days) that you have accepted cookies can be stored on your device. We also make some limited use of session cookies.
The cookies used by the Leisure Owners Association site are normally regarded as being harmless. We specifically do not track your usage of the Internet. However, our software can only provide a limited control over third party cookies.

External (third party) sites, e.g. those accessed when you follow web links, may use cookies to track your usage. For example, vendors often use cookies to track orders and to allow them to send you “targeted” sales promotion material in adverts on their pages. Cookies can be disabled or monitored on most web browsers, however this will normally limit your ability to browse some web sites.

This site is protected by reCAPTCHA. The Google Privacy Policy and Terms of Service apply.

There are a number of sites that provide tracking services and it may be considered worthwhile specifically blocking these. Various software cookie management tools and Internet security aids are available which can be used to control cookies and pop-up adverts.
To find out more about cookies, how they are used and the risks associated with them, visit the All About Cookies Web Site.

For further advice on the use of cookies on the Association site please e-mail the Webmaster.
