What are Cookies?
A cookie is a small file which is placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. The file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies are widely used by online service providers in order to (for example) make their websites or services work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
Cookies set by the website owner or service provider (in this case, Weight In Mind Ltd) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website or service you are using (such as advertising, interactive content and analytics). The third parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website or service in question and also when it visits certain other websites or services. Please note that we have no control over third party cookies.
We use Google Analytics and other providers, to provide us with statistical information about use and traffic on our websites, mobile apps and social media platforms. These services use IP addresses and other information from cookies to tell us, for example, the number of page views, number of users, what browsers users are using, and location data of users. This statistical information allows us to understand our audiences, reach our target audiences, develop and customise our product and services, maximise compatibility for most of our users, and determine how much to charge for advertising.
We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about webpage traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.
What Cookies do we use?
On our site, we use a mixture of essential, performance and functionality, analytical and advertising cookies.
Required to enable core website functionality, simply put, the website can’t function without them.
Performance & Functionality Cookies:
— W3 Total Cache
This cookie is set by W3 Total Cache plug-in for sites based on the WordPress content management system. It is used for performance optimisation.
To manage the ecommerce section of our website we use the WooCommerce platform. Built on wordpress, WooCommerce is an open source development platform that is regularly audited by Sucuri, an industry leader in security.
Cookies are used by WooCommerce in a variety of ways.
Cookies depend on specific features that are enabled on a store. The cookies are active when a user interacts with one of these features or to allow admin functions to be performed from within the store’s dashboard (/wp-admin).
Store front end:
|woocommerce_cart_hash||session||Helps WooCommerce determine when cart contents/data changes.|
|woocommerce_items_in_cart||session||Helps WooCommerce determine when cart contents/data changes.|
|wp_woocommerce_session_||2 days||Contains a unique code for each customer so that it knows where to find the cart data in the database for each customer.|
|woocommerce_recently_viewed||session||Powers the Recent Viewed Products widget.|
|store_notice[notice id]||session||Allows customers to dismiss the Store Notice.|
No personal information is stored within these cookies.
Within the WooCommerce platform cookies are widely used to ‘remember’ you and your preferences, either for a single visit through a ’session cookie’ or for multiple repeat visits using a ‘persistent cookie’. They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in.
Both websites and HTML emails may also contain other tracking technologies such as ‘web beacons’, or ‘pixels’. These are typically small transparent images that provide us with statistics for similar purposes as cookies. They are often used in conjunction with cookies, though they are not stored on your computer in the same way. If you disable cookies, the web beacons may still load, but their functionality will be restricted.

By enabling these Google Analytics Display features, we are required to notify our visitors by disclosing the use of these features and that we and third-party vendors use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) or other first-party identifiers, and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) or other third-party identifiers together to gather data about your activities on our Site. Among other uses, this allows us to contact you if you begin to fill out our check-out form but abandon it before completion with an email reminding you to complete your order. The “Remarketing” feature allows us to reach people who previously visited our Site, and match the right audience with the right advertising message.

These are tiny graphic files that contain unique identifiers enable us to recognize when our subscribers have opened an email or clicked certain links. These technologies record each subscribers email address, IP address, date, and time associated with each open and click for a campaign. We use this data to create reports about how an email campaign performed and what actions subscribers took.
