Types of cookies
The law distinguishes functional cookies from other cookies. Lmond asks your permission for other than functional cookies. Functional cookies are cookies that are necessary for the optimal functionality of a website. These cookies (i) have the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of communication over an electronic network or (ii) are strictly necessary for the provision of an information service requested by the user. Examples include cookies that remember the items in an online shopping basket, or cookies that can remember login details. Other cookies can be separated in analytic cookies and tracking cookies. Analytic cookies are cookies that collect anonymous statistical information on the use of the website in order to improve a websites functionalities. Examples include cookies that collect information of the amount of visitors on a website, or the amount of time that a visitor spends on a website. Tracking cookies are stored on a users’ device in between browser sessions which allows the preferences or actions of the user across a site, or across different websites, to be remembered. Tracking cookies may be used for the purpose of collecting, combining or analysing information on the use of a website for commercial purposes. Examples include the collection of information for target advertisement. The rules apply both to first party cookies as to third party cookies. First party cookies are set by the website you are visiting and they can only be read by that site.Third party cookies are set by a different organisation to the owner of the website you are visiting. For example, the website might use a third party analytics company who will set their own cookie to perform this service. The website you are visiting may also contain content embedded from for example YouTube or Flickr, and these sites may set their own cookies.

How to manage and delete cookies
If you wish to restrict or block the cookies which are set by the Lmond website, or indeed any other website, you can do this through your browser settings. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other websites. Many websites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows. Users have the opportunity to set their devices to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. Click on the relevant link for your browser to see the instructions. For information on how to do this on the browser of your mobile phone you will need to refer to your handset manual.
Lmond may need to amend this cookie statement from time to time, for example if our website or legislation changes. Lmond may always amend this statement without prior notification. This latest version dates from February 2016. Please contact our customer service for any questions.
