About Website Cookies

What are cookies?

Cookies are simple text files which are used right across the web to do things like help you with automatic logins, password authentication, shopping cart functions, personal preference settings and a many other functions. Cookies make these functions smooth and hassle-free to the user. Cookies are just pieces of data created when you visit a website and are stored in the cookies directory of your computer.

Cardiff People First cookies

Cardiff People First’s website uses cookies to remember when you have changed the size of the text using the “Change Text Size” buttons at the top of each page. The cookie helps your internet browser remember that you have changed the size of the text on one page, and remembers this change for every page that you look at on our website so that you don’t have to keep changing the text size each time on every page that you look at. This is very useful and saves you a lot of time.


Every time you visit our website, a cookie is generated by Google Analytics which provides anonymous statistical data. This helps us track things like the number of visitors, how often they visit, and which pages are the most popular, so that we can improve our site experience.

Details on Google Analytics can be found in Google’s privacy policy.

Third party cookies

Third party cookies may be used to display videos on our site through Youtube, and to allow the use of social sharing functions.

Disabling cookies

Remember that:

  • Cookies don’t search your computer for information, they simply remember your information on the website to save you time.
  • Cookies only store the information you provide. A cookie cannot “grab” your email address or any other personal data – only information you voluntarily give when you visit a website.
  • Cookies themselves contain very little information other than the URL of the website that created the cookie. Because there is so little information, a cookie can’t be used to identify you by name or other personal information.
  • Cookies are harmless. They cannot introduce viruses on your computer. Cookies are not the same thing as Spyware. A cookie stores your website surfing information; Spyware stores your Internet surfing information (every site you visit).

However, if you want to, you can change your internet browser controls to block certain cookies, or notify you when one is set.

Just remember that if you choose to disable cookies then the “Change Text Size” function of this Cardiff People First website will not work.
