Cookie Notice

This is the Cookie Notice for www.sheskinwindfarm.com. It applies to information collected and used by SSE Renewables which is a trading name of the SSE Group. When we refer to ‘SSE’, ‘we’, ‘us’, and ‘our’, we mean any of those SSE entities, as appropriate. This information is collected through instruments known as Cookies and various other technologies, collectively referred to in this Cookie Notice as ‘Cookies’.

Please review this Cookie Notice and our Privacy Notice.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files transferred and stored by your web browser to your computer or mobile device when you visit or use a website. Cookies allow websites to recognise your device and store some information about your preferences or past actions.

Cookies can be considered as ‘first party’ or ‘third party’ Cookies depending on the domain that places them. First party Cookies are Cookies set by a website visited by the user (for example, Cookies placed by SSE for www.sse.com). Third party Cookies are set by a domain other than that of the website visited by the user, so if a user visits a website and a third-party organisation sets a Cookie through that website, this would be a third-party Cookie.

Cookies can also be considered as ‘persistent’ or ‘session’ Cookies depending on their duration. Persistent Cookies remain on a user’s device for the time specified in those Cookies. They are activated every time that user visits the website that created the Cookies, until the Cookies expire or are disabled by the user. Session Cookies allow the actions of a user to be linked during a single browsing session. A session starts when a user opens a browser window and ends when the browser window is closed, following which all session Cookies are deleted.

Why do we use Cookies?

We use Cookies and other similar technologies to collect information about your browsing activity and about the device you have used to access our website (including the make, model and operating system, IP address, browser type and mobile device identifiers) so we can provide essential features and functionality on our website:

  • Make our website as easy and intuitive as possible for you to use
  • Monitor and analyse website usage and performance so we can measure the effectiveness of our website and improve it (including security)
  • Remember choices you make when visiting our website and recognise you when you return so you don’t have to remind us

The Cookies used on our website can be broken down into two categories:

  • Strictly necessary
  • Performance


Strictly necessary

These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you that amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms.

You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but then some parts of the site will not work.

Performance

These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve site performance. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site.

If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site and will not be able to monitor its performance.
