Cookie Policy

Don’t get too excited… we don’t have a policy that insists you have to eat cookies while using our website. Although, if that’s what you want to do, go for it!

Unfortunately our cookie policy is boring compared to cookie eating permissions! However, it’s necessary that you know how browser cookies are used on our site AND what you can do to disable them.

Are you ready?! Let’s get down to all things cookie-related…

WHAT ARE COOKIES?

THE DELIBERATE MOM uses cookies – small text files that are placed on your machine to help the site provide a better user experience. In general, cookies are used to retain user preferences and provide anonymised tracking data to third party applications like Google Analytics.

There are several types of cookies. Here are the cookie definitions defined (source: ico.org.uk)

SESSION AND PERSISTENT COOKIES

Cookies can expire at the end of a browser session (from when a user opens the browser window to when they exit the browser) or they can be stored for longer.

SESSION COOKIES – allow websites to link the actions of a user during a browser session. They may be used for a variety of purposes such as remembering what a user has put in their shopping basket as they browse around a site. They could also be used for security when a user is accessing internet banking or to facilitate use of webmail. These session cookies expire after a browser session so would not be stored longer term. For this reason session cookies may sometimes be considered less privacy
intrusive than persistent cookies.

PERSISTENT COOKIES – are stored on a users’ device in between browser sessions which allows the preferences or actions of the user across a site (or in some cases across different websites) to be remembered. Persistent cookies may be used for a variety of purposes including remembering users’ preferences and choices when using a site or to target advertising.

FIRST AND THIRD PARTY COOKIES – Whether a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party refers to the website or domain placing the cookie. First party cookies in basic terms are cookies set by a website visited by the user – the website displayed in the URL window. Third party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than the one being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and a separate company sets a cookie through that website this would be a third party cookie.

Third-party ad servers or ad networks use technology to the advertisements and links that appear on THE DELIBERATE MOM send directly to your browsers. They may automatically receive your IP address when this occurs. Other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript, or Web Beacons) may also be used by the third-party ad networks to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and / or to personalize the advertising content that you see.

THE DELIBERATE MOM uses Mediavine to manage all third-party advertising on the Website. Mediavine serves content and advertisements when you visit THE DELIBERATE MOM, which may use cookies. Mediavine may collect IP addresses and location to serve personalized ads.  If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices to opt-in or opt-out of this data collection, please visit:

THE DELIBERATE MOM has no access to or control over these cookies that are used by third-party advertisers (including, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies, over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies.

THE DELIBERATE MOM privacy policy does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, such other advertisers or web sites.
