Warning - this website uses cookies

Since the implementation of GDPR you may have noticed an increase in cookie policy warnings on the websites that you visit. These pop up warnings were widely viewed as annoyoying and unecessary, and many organisations simply did not use them. Now however, GDPR regulations insist that websites tell visitors if their data is being gathered and processed through a cookie policy warning. 

What is a website cookie?

A website cookie is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored on the user's computer. They were designed to allow websites to remember useful information or record browsing activity. This can then be used to enhance the user's browsing experience, for example by making it easy to find pages that have previously been viewed, or keeping them logged in to a particular website account.

But cookies could also be seen as intrusive as they allow websites to gather information (pages viewed, time spent on a page, frequently bought items or buttons clicked) which can be used to build up an anonymous profile of a user - which could in turn be used for targeted advertising. This is why GDPR insist on websites having a cookie policy warning. 

Example of cookie policy warning at top of page. 




What is a cookie policy warning?

A cookie policy warning displays on the page when a user first accesses a website to warn them that the site uses cookies. Once the warning pop up has been closed (i.e. terms agreed) it will not appear again for that user on that browser, unless they clear their cookies or go 'incognito'. 

Pretty much all websites use cookies, so should have a cookies policy warning in place. Prior to GDPR many companies did not - hence the huge increase in them appearing since the regulations have been implemented.

We are now recommending that all our clients have a cookie policy warning on their website in order to be GDPR compliant. For more information please call 0117 907 9930 or email your enquiry and a member of our team will get back to you.  

One succesful launch for OneFifty

We recently completed a really interesting project - the renaming and rebranding of 'The Jet Washing Company' to 'OneFifty'. OneFifty specialises in exterior surface cleaning and we have worked with business owners Max and Andy Morris since they first set the company up in 2013. 

In 2017 we carried out an in-depth review of where the business had got to and Max and Andy's plans for the future. In short, The Jet Washing Company had evolved, and it was becoming increasingly obvious that it had outgrown its original name.
 
We worked closely with Max and Andy to come up with a new name and to develop a new logo. This was launched in May this year and has been very well received. The aim of the renaming and rebranding was to allow the company to appeal to larger organisations; just a few weeks since the launch they have already acquired a very large new contract - so things are moving in the right direction!

We are now looking forward to continuing to work with Max and Andy to help them develop and grow their business and meet their planned business targets over the coming years.  Read the case study
 
“Max and I have been delighted with the rebranding project, and the work that ie has done over the past years. The bottom line is the phone rings every day and we don't sit around wondering where our next contract is coming from - proof positive that what ie is doing works.”

Andy Morris
Director - OneFifty 
 

“I am as pleased as punch with my new site. We have had brilliant feedback and are achieving our targets for online sales so far this year. Kentico works beautifully – intuitive to use and the formatting works well allowing us to update content really easily. Honestly I am more than delighted“.
