3: Why do we use cookies?

Cookies on our Website are used for a variety of different purposes.

We use cookies to improve the user experience on the website and to map your surfing behaviour (e.g. the pages you have visited and the time you spent on that page).

In addition, we also use the User ID feature from Google analytics which enables the association of one or more sessions (and the activity within those sessions) with a unique and persistent ID that we send to Google Analytics.  This allows us to identify related actions and devices and connect these data points. The purpose is to provide a more accurate user count in our reports and to have a more unified holistic story about a user’s relationship with EIT Food.
