Google Analytics records data such as your approximate geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system. However, none of this information personally identifies you to us.

Google Analytics also records your computer’s IP address which could be used to personally identify you.  Qwerkemorium has chosen to anonymize this piece of data within our website. However,  Google do not grant access to this data in our reporting anyway. Furthermore, we consider Google to be a third-party data processor.

Google Analytics makes use of cookies, details of which can be found on Google’s developer guides.

Purchasing Goods

To keep track of basket data, WooCommerce makes use of 3 cookies:

  • woocommerce_cart_hash
  • woocommerce_items_in_cart
  • wp_woocommerce_session_

Two cookies we use contain information about the basket which helps WooCommerce know when the basket data changes.

Our final cookie (wp_woocommerce_session_) contains a unique code for each customer so that it knows where to find the basket data in the database for each customer. No personal information is stored within these cookies.

Session cookies are temporary cookies that only remain for the duration of your website visit.  We use these mainly to keep track of whether you are logged in or out. Also, it keeps track of what items are in your basket.

Persistent cookies remain for much longer and we use these mainly for analytical purposes, so we can track how our customers are using the website to improve our service to you.
