Analytics Cookies

We use cookies to compile visitor statistics such as how many people have visited our website, what type of technology they are using (e.g. Mac or Windows which helps to identify when our site isn't working as it should for particular technologies), how long they spend on the site, what page they look at etc. This helps us to continuously improve our website. These so called "analytics" programs also tell us how - on an anonymous basis - people reached this site (e.g. from a search engine) and whether they have been here before. This helps us to put more money into developing our services and keeping our prices down instead of marketing spend. We use the Google Analytics software for this.

  • Google allow you to opt of Google Analytics by specifying your preferences in your Google account.There is also a browser add-on available for the Chrome browser which will opt you out of Google Analytics.
  • New technologies such as Mozilla's Do Not Track allow you to tell websites not to track you. Currently, there is no legal requirement (either by law or by broad social consensus) to recognise and act upon this preference and as such very web sites support it. Support for Do Not Track is not currently implemented by www.opieoils.co.uk because there is no industry consensus as to what this browser setting should do.
  • Internet Explorer has a feature called Tracking Protection Lists which allows you to import a list of websites you want to block.
  • Opie Oils does not allow any third party advertising on www.opieoils.co.uk, but you may be interested to know that the Internet Advertising Bureau website Your Online Choices allows you to install opt-out cookies across different advertising networks.
  • It may be that you concerns around cookies relate to so called "spyware". Rather than switching off cookies in your browser you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive.
