Mmm… cookies, yummy!

We’re required to let you know about cookies and how we use them. We’re sure you’ve all seen those annoying pop-ups and banners on other sites mentioning something about these strange electronic biscuits, you know, those one’s you just click anywhere on to go away, or end up at some ridiculously long and confusing page filed with small print. Yeah, we hate them too. But, nonetheless, here we go anyway…

About Cookies

Most websites use small files called “cookies” stored on your computer to save information about you and your preferences. For example, it might contain a record of which pages within the site you visited or your display preferences to help the site customise the view for you.  Only the information that you provide, or the choices you make, while visiting a website can be stored in a cookie. Allowing a website to create a cookie does not give that or any other site access to the rest of your computer and only the site that created the cookie can read it. Cookies are generally used to provide a pleasant or efficient browsing experience to keep track of how many people visit the site. Doing a bit of online shopping and come back a day later to those retro-chic shoes still in your basket? That is the previously unsung work of the now legendary cookie. 

Your browser also generates other information, including which language the site is displayed in, and your Internet Protocol address ("IP address"). Your IP address is automatically logged by our servers and used to collect traffic data, such the number of visitors to our site. We do not use your IP address to identify you personally and the information is not passed to third parties. Until we figure out a way to use this information to take over the world it will remain that way. 

Controlling cookies

You can control whether your computer accepts or rejects cookies by default, or to tell you when a site tries to save a cookie on your computer, by adjusting your browser setting. Cookies can also be manually deleted. The method to change these settings varies depending on the browser. Read the help section within your browser to find out more, or visit (NetChalets is not responsible for the content of external websites). Many modern browsers also have an anonymous usage mode (called "Incognito" in Google Chrome, "InPrivate" in Internet Explorer and "Private Browsing" in Firefox) which can be used to automatically stop cookies being stored on your computer.

This site operates implied consent for cookies, which means we assume by using this site you are happy with the usage of the cookies outlined below. If you do not want to accept the use of these cookies you should discontinue use of the site, delete the cookies, or adjust your browser settings accordingly.

This site does not use cookies to collect any personal information about you. We will only use the cookies created to personalise and secure your experience, and provide us with anonymous statistics. What this means is that we will be able to keep certain settings for you for when you return. It also means that you do not need to pass security details on every screen as we store them for you during the time you spend browsing our site.

If you’re fascinated by this stuff, and frankly who isn’t, below is a list of the cookies we use: 

Google Analytics ("__utma", "__utmz" etc)
These cookies are controlled by Google and are used to measure the number of people visiting the site and how it is being used. All data is anonymous.

There are more to be added here, but while we confirm what the hell they are, why not make some more interesting cookies...

Combine 225g of melted melted butter and 440g of dark brown soft sugar until smooth. Beat in two eggs, one at a time, then add 325g of plain flour, one teaspoon each of baking powder and bicarbonate of soda, and stir until combined into a single, glorious, mixture. Fold in 300g of chocolate chips, we like to a high percentage cocoa dark chocolate. Dollop onto greased and lined baking tray and bake for 8 to 10 minutes at 190 degrees celsius.
