Cookies Policy

To make our website work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website stores on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site.
  • First party cookies are cookies set by the website you’re visiting. Only that website can read them. In addition, a website might potentially use external services, which also set their own cookies, known as third-party cookies.
  • Persistent cookies are cookies saved on your computer and that are not deleted automatically when you quit your browser, unlike a session cookie, which is deleted when you quit your browser.
Every time you visit our website, you will be prompted to  or refuse cookies. The purpose is to enable the site to remember your preferences (such as user name, language, etc.) for a certain period of time.
That way, you don’t have to re-enter them when browsing around the site during the same visit.
Cookies can also be used to establish anonymised statistics about the browsing experience on our sites.

How do we use cookies?

The Turas Nua website uses “first-party cookies”. These are cookies set and controlled by the business, not by any external organisation.
However, to view some of our pages, you may have to accept cookies from external organisations.  
The 3 types of first-party cookies we use are to:
  • store visitor preferences
  • make our websites operational
  • gather analytics data (about user behaviour)
Visitor preferences

These are set by us and only we can read them. They remember:
  • if you have agreed to (or refused) this site’s cookie policy
Analytics cookies

We use these purely for internal research on how we can improve the service we provide for all our users.
The cookies simply assess how you interact with our website – as an anonymous user (the data gathered does not identify you personally).
Also, this data is shared with any third parties or used for any other purpose. The anonymised statistics could be shared with contractors working on communication projects under contractual agreement with the company.
However, you are free to refuse these types of cookies – either via the cookie banner you’ll see on the first page you visit or by emailing us at hello@turasnua.ie

Removing cookies from your device

You can delete all cookies that are already on your device by clearing the browsing history of your browser. This will remove all cookies from all websites you have visited.
Be aware though that you may also lose some saved information (e.g. saved login details, site preferences).

Managing site-specific cookies

For more detailed control over site-specific cookies, check the privacy and cookie settings in your preferred browser.
Within your browser you can choose whether you wish to accept cookies or not. Different browsers make different controls available to you Generally, your browser will offer you the choice to accept, refuse or delete cookies at all times, or those from providers that website owners use ("third party cookies"), or those from specific websites.

Blocking cookies

You can set most modern browsers to prevent any cookies being placed on your device, but you may then have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site/page. And some services and functionalities may not work properly at all (e.g. profile logging-in).
