COOKIE POLICY

We are happy to answer your questions

What are cookies?


A cookie is a small text file that may be placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit one of our websites. We, and some third-party service providers, use cookies on our websites. Some are persistent cookies (cookies that remain on your hard drive for an extended period of time) and some are session ID cookies (cookies that expire when you close your browser).

We also use other tracking technologies like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking beacons” or “clear gifs”) and local storage. These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has visited our websites or opened an email that we have sent them.

You can find more information about cookies at http://www.allaboutcookies.org/ and www.youronlinechoices.com/.

How we use cookies


We use cookies to collect information, including personal data. To find out more about personal data and how we respect your data see our Privacy Policy. This document sets out more about the types of cookies we use, and why.

Cookies help us to operate our websites and services, enhance and customise your experience across our websites and services and perform analytics.

Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through our websites and services, such as interactive content and analytics.

What cookies do we use?


In the tables below you can see a description of each cookie that we use, what it does and when its expires.

Cookie Name Description
XSRF-TOKEN CSFR cookie. This cookie is primarily sent as a convenience since some JavaScript frameworks.
__cfduid The __cfduid cookie is used to identify individual clients behind a shared IP address and apply security settings on a per-client basis. For example, if the visitor is in a coffee shop where there are a bunch of infected machines, but the specific visitor’s machine is trusted (e.g. because they’ve completed a challenge within your Challenge Passage period), the cookie allows CloudFlare to identify that client and not challenge them again. It does not correspond to any user ID in web application, and does not store any personally identifiable information.
__stripe_mid Stripe is used to make credit card payments. Stripe uses a cookie to remember who you are and to enable ClearWaste to process payments without storing any credit card information on its own servers.
__utma Used to distinguish users and sessions. The cookie is created when the javascript library executes and no existing __utma cookies exists. The cookie is updated every time data is sent to Google Analytics.
__utmz Stores the traffic source or campaign that explains how the user reached your site. The cookie is created when the javascript library executes and is updated every time data is sent to Google Analytics.

We also use Google Analytics to monitor how our website is used.

Google Analytics places several persistent cookies on your computer’s hard drive. These do not collect any personal data.

We also use social media buttons and/or plug ins on this site that allow you to connect with your social network. For these to work the relevant social media sites (for example, Twitter and Facebook) will set cookies through our site which may be used to enhance your profile on their site or contribute to the data they hold for various purposes outlined in their respective privacy policies.
