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.
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.
In the tables below you can see a description of each cookie that we use, what it does and when its expires.
|__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.|
|_ga||Cookies set by Google Analytics, which allow ClearWaste to analyze user experience on the website.|
|_gcl_au||Used by Google AdSense for experimenting with advertisement efficiency across websites using their services.|

We also use Google Analytics to monitor how our website is used. Google Analytics collects information anonymously and generates reports for us with details of the number of visits to the site, where our visitors generally came from, how long they stayed on the site, and which pages they visited. Google Analytics places several persistent cookies on your computer’s hard drive. These do not collect any personal data. If you do not agree to this you can disable persistent cookies in your browser. This will prevent Google Analytics from logging your visits.
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.
To change your cookie settings, or if you want to be notified each time a cookie is about to be used, you should amend the settings provided in your web browser to prevent us from storing cookies on your computer hard drive.
