How we use cookies on our website

Cookies are small text files that can be used by web sites to make a user's experience more efficient.

The law states that ragtag can store cookies on your machine if they are essential to the operation of this site but that for all others we need your permission in order to do so.

Ragtag does use some non-essential cookies. We use Google Analytics, a popular web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. Google Analytics uses cookies to help us to understand how users use our site. It counts the number of visitors and tells us things about their visit to the website - such as the typical length of stay on the site or the average number of pages a user views, which page is least visited etc. We don't do this to track individual users or to identify them, but to gain knowledge and understanding about how our site is used so that we can keep making it better for our website visitors. Without the knowledge we gain from the systems that use these cookies we'd not be able to provide the service we do.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of our website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of our website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage.

Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Google undertakes not to associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

If you have Adobe Flash installed on your computer (most computers do) and you use Out-Law.com's audio or video players, Google Analytics will try to store some additional data on your computer. This data is known as a Local Shared Object or Flash cookie. This helps us to analyse the popularity of our media files. We can count the total number of times each file is played, how many people watch videos right to the end and how many people give up half way through. Adobe's website offers tools to control Flash cookies on your computer.

Some third party cookies are set by services that appear on our pages. They are set by the operators of that service and are not in our control. They are set by Twitter, Facebook and inShare and relate to the ability of users to share content on this site.

If you want to delete any cookies that are already on your computer, please refer to the instructions for your file management software to locate the file or directory that stores cookies. You can access them through some types of browser. Search in your cookie folders for 'ragtag' to find our cookie and the Google Analytics cookie if you wish to delete them.

More information about cookies, including how to block them or delete them, can be found at Cookiepedia.

Please note that by deleting our cookies or disabling future cookies you may not be able to access certain areas or features of our site.

Thanks for your interest in our Privacy Policy.
