What are Cookies?

Cookies are small amounts of information which some sites store on your computer to make it easier for you to log on to and use them during future visits. In reality, a cookie is a small text file which is stored by the user's browser and contains data, not code, so it can't contain a virus or spyware. This doesn't mean that all cookies are harmless in intent, but they can only ever store information.

How does the Crane’s site use cookies?

We use cookies to obtain aggregate data regarding site traffic and interaction, in order to identify user trends and obtain insights in order to continually improve our site. These cookies enable us to improve your customer experience as you use our site and help provide you with relevant online marketing. 

A visit to a page on the Crane Garden Buildings site may generate the following types of cookie:

  • Third-Party Cookie
  • Advertising Cookies
  • Behaviour Tracking Cookies


Third-Party Cookie

Third-party cookies are used for all behavioural reporting and advertising. Every time someone visits our site, software provided by another organisation will generate a behaviour analytics cookie.

These cookies allow us to monitor site traffic, analyse how visitors use it via Google Analytics and tell us whether or not you, as a user, have visited the site before and which channel you entered the site through, for example, whether you clicked through from an advert or from a link in an email. We use this information to help us improve our site.

Each time you visit our site your browser will be able to inform us if you have these cookies, as a result of visiting the site previously, or if you don’t, in which we generate new ones.

These cookies enable us to track how many individual users we have, and how often they visit the site.

We cannot use these cookies to identify individuals. We use them to gather statistics, for example, the number of visits to a page, and average time on the site per visit.

Advertising Cookies

These cookies allow us to know whether or not you’ve seen an advert, as well as the type of advert and how long it has been since you’ve seen it.

These cookies help us use targeted advertising much more effectively. We may use cookies set by another organisation so we can more accurately target advertising to you.  For example, we may show adverts about garden sheds if you have recently visited the garden sheds section of our site. These cookies are anonymous – they store information about what you are looking at on our site, but not about who you are. 

Behaviour Tracking Cookies

These cookies allow us to gain a holistic overview on the customer’s journey on the site, including; activities during visits to the site, how they landed on the site i.e. via an email or online advertisement. 

These cookies are anonymous, until you, the user, conducts an action on the site which requires you to submit your name and contact information. Although these cookies are then connected to your data, we do not use this information to optimise our marketing activities or provide this data to third-party suppliers.
