On an initial visit to the site, you will see a notice asking whether you wish to accept cookies. These are:
- acceptCookies and acceptCookies-legacy: - Required - these are set even if you decline (which sets them to 'false') as they're necessary to save your preference so that we know not to keep asking. They do not interfere with your privacy and are strictly for the above purpose only. No other cookies will be set if these are set to 'false' or not present.
Resetting your cookie preferences
Your current cookie preference is: Undecided (Cookies will not be set, as you must opt in from the banner below)
You may reset your preferences at any time using the button above. This will delete any and all existing cookies set via our website, and re-prompt you for your preferences based on the details above.
If you do not see the prompt (a large banner at the bottom of the page) then please check you have disabled any ad blockers, as some of them block cookie notices (they can be considered an annoyance, but are required by law to protect your privacy).
General Privacy / GDPR
Marl follows the rules and guidelines of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) 2016/679, which establishes a strong foundation of privacy by law. Privacy and compliance with GDPR are also reliant on cyber security, and we can confirm that our data security practices certify Marl for Cyber Essentials Plus, as detailed in the Quality Statement.
We use Google Analytics to collect information about how visitors use our site. This information helps us to determine factors for improving our website such as which pages are popular, how we were found (e.g. Google search) and what devices are being used to view it.
No Personally Indentifiable Information is used for this (for example, IP addresses are anonymised before being stored by Google Analytics, making it impossible to identify the individual).
We may from time to time share the anonymous, aggregated data with trusted Internet Marketing experts, where their service is to help us interpret it and improve upon our internet presence. It does not include any personally identifiable information, and we do not share data with any other third party for any other purpose. If however you remain uncomfortable with this and prefer to opt out, visit the Google Analytics opt-out page.
Where permitted by your accecptance of the cookie notice, we use Hotjar to record how you use the site. A key feature is heat mapping, which can highlight usability issues (e.g. something on the page attracting clicks when it's not actually clickable) that we may not have thought of, which in turn enables us to improve upon the user experience.
