At Bel-Rose International, we are required by UK and EU law, to obtain consent from visitors about the placement of cookies on your electronic device when visiting our website. We do this by displaying a pop-up banner at the top of the page during your first visit - no matter which page you open first. The banner will be removed after you click 'I Accept' and will not appear again whilst browsing other pages during your immediate session. However, if you delete cookies at the end and return later on, the cookie banner will reappear. We explain what a cookie is, why it is used, what cookies are used on our website and how to delete them.
What is a Cookie?
A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic, or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes, by gathering information and remembering information about your preferences.
We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages on our site are being used. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to our customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.
Overall, cookies help us to provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you found 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 via our registration or contact form, or other method of communication. You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers accept cookies automatically, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. However, this may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.
Why do we use third party Cookies?
We use a third party platform (web server) to host our website and a third party app (our forms: necessary for client and candidate registration, and contact form) which automatically places cookies on our site and is compliant with applicable laws, and necessary to provide our service to you.
