How to Manage Cookies

Cookies may be used on some parts of our website. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site. Cookies used on Warwickshire Police's website cannot run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Our cookies can't read other data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. We do not use cookies for collecting personal user information.

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are stored on your computer and help us to recognise you if you return to our site at a later stage. This can save you time on future visits by storing information you may have previously entered onto our site. For example, they are used to verify who you are, for session management (session management is the process of keeping track of a user's activity across sessions of interaction with a website) and maintaining user site preferences.

You may block and / or delete cookies from this site, but this will have an impact on the site, as described in the information below.

To make it clearer for you, we've divided how we use cookies into four different categories:

  • Setting-based: this type of cookie is used to remember a setting or preference, such as a colour or the size of text on a page.
  • Feature-based: this type of cookie is used to remember information about a feature on a page, such as the fact that you've watched a video clip or listened to an audio file previously.
  • Function-based: this type of cookie is used to remember information about how you use a website, and provide analytical information to site administrators.
  • Third-party: this type of cookie is created by a third-party, and can also fall under the categories of Setting, Feature and Functional. Where third-party cookies are present on our sites, we will attempt to be as upfront and clear as possible about their intended purpose.
