How LMCA Uses Cookies

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on a computer's hard drive. Once the user agrees, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets the user know when they visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to individual users. The web application can tailor its operations to specific needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about preferences.

LMCA uses traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being viewed. This is helpful when analysing data about web page traffic or when implementing website improvements. This information is only ever used for the purposes of statistical analysis.

By monitoring which pages are found to be most useful, LMCA can evolve its website for the benefit of its clients. A cookie does not in any way provide access to a user’s computer or any information about the user, other than the data that is shared voluntarily.

Users can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies; browser settings can usually be modified to decline cookies if necessary. It should be noted that declining cookies may prevent the user from taking full advantage of the website.
