Site usage – cookies

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.

Cookies in themselves do not identify individual users but identify only the computer used.

 

How do we use cookies?

A number of our pages use cookies to remember:

  • your display preferences, such as contrast colour settings or font size
  • if you have already replied to a survey pop-up that offers you my free ebook
  • if you have agreed (or not) to our use of cookies on this site

Enabling these cookies is not strictly necessary for the website to work but it will provide you with a better browsing experience. You can delete or block these cookies, but if you do that some features of this site may not work as intended.

The cookie-related information is not used to identify you personally and the pattern data is fully under our control. These cookies are not used for any purpose other than those described here.

 

How to control cookies

You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – for details, see aboutcookies.org.

You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed.

If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work.

 

Analytics

Like many other websites, Google Analytics is used on sri-lanka-visa.org.

Google Analytics is a piece of software that collects data about the visitors of this website (you). It’s something like an advanced server log.

What does Google Analytics record?

  • What website you came from to get here
  • What country you are visiting this site from
  • How long you stay for
  • What kind of computer you’re using
  • And quite a bit more

What do we do with your data?

The tracking information allows us to better understand the kind of people who come to the site, what content they’re reading and how they purchase. This allows us to make better decisions about writing, design and the systems being used (for example shopping carts).

Occasionally, we will compile aggregate statistics about the number of visitors this site receives and browsers being used. No personally identifying data is included in this type of reporting.

All of our activity falls within the bounds of the Google Analytics Terms of Service.

Want to opt out of tracking?

You can opt out of Google’s advertising tracking cookie or use a browser plugin to opt out of all Google Analytics tracking software.
