Privacy - Disabling Cookies - Liability - Copyright

We want to make the First Nature website as helpful to users as we can, but in doing so we respect your need for privacy and security. Recent changes in legislation make it necessary to explain how, in common with other modern websites, this site makes use of text files known as 'cookies' to optimise its performance.

Privacy - use of 'cookies' on the First Nature website

A 'cookie' is a small text file about a website that your web browser stores on your computer. The First Nature website makes use of cookies to give us anonymous information about the number of visitors to the various sections and pages of our site; which search terms are most used on the site, and where any broken links or other errors occur. These cookies are anonymous: we do not know what you personally or any other individual visitors to the website are looking at. We do not collect or store any personal data on this website.

Modern browsers allow you to control how cookies are handled, whether they are accepted and how long they are stored for. The way that different browsers do this varies, but the 'help' documentation for your particular browser will allow you to see such details. We also use information via Google Analytics, which helps us to measure the usage of our site and improve the value of our pages to visitors. The tiny image files used by Google Analytics are transparent, so they can't be seen and they will not make any noticeable difference to your browsing experience; most importantly, they do not give away any personal data.
