Cookie Policy


Cobbs does not collect personal information about you. Not that we don’t want to know about you, but we’d rather meet you in person when you visit. In fact, the best cookies associated with us are the ones that you can enjoy at our café. However, under EU law, we are obliged to inform you of the cookies that may be used on our website and how to block them or delete them from your browser.


First, an explanation of what they do.



What is a Cookie?


A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as an unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers.


Most websites you visit will use cookies in order to improve your user experience by enabling that website to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’).


Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, storing your preferences, and generally improving your experience of a website. Cookies make the interaction between you and the website faster and easier. If a website doesn’t use cookies, it will think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site.


Some websites will also use cookies to enable them to target their advertising or marketing messages based for example, on your location and/or browsing habits.


Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting (‘first party cookies’) or they may be set by other websites who run content on the page you are viewing (‘third party cookies’).



What To Do If You Don’t Want Cookies To Be Set


Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although this is generally harmless you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website.


If you don’t want to receive cookies, you can modify your browser so that it notifies you when cookies are sent to it or you can refuse cookies altogether. You can also delete cookies that have already been set.


If you wish to restrict or block web browser cookies that are set on your device then you can do this through your browser settings; the Help function within your browser should tell you how.

For information on how to control cookies visit www.aboutcookies.org, which contains comprehensive information on how to do this on a wide variety of desktop browsers.
