Web Site: Log files
www.abletek.co.uk follows a standard procedure of using log files. These files log visitors when they visit websites. All hosting companies do this and a part of hosting services’ analytics. The information collected by log files include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks.

What are Cookies? A widely used term to describe small files that are sent to the computer browser when used to access a website. Cookie files are used to store information about the browser session – helping the website to remember information about you and your visit/s, making for an improved browsing experience. There are a number of different types of cookies, each used for different function for visitor interaction with a website. The following are some examples of the different types of cookies:
Session Cookies: Help a website track a user’s session and are typically deleted after a user’s session ends — once they log out of their account on a website or close their web browser. An example of a session cookie is a shopping basket on most e-commerce or online shopping websites – the cookie enables the website to remember the contents of the shopping basket.
Persistent Cookies: Unlike session cookies, persistent cookies remain in a user’s browser for a predetermined length of time, which could be a day, a week, several months, or even years. Persistent cookies always contain an expiration date. An example of a persistent cookie is where a website may remember user ‘settings’, eg. language – enabling content for re-visits in a user selected language.
Authentication Cookies: These cookies are typically used to manage user session connections to protected pages and user account. They ensure sensitive information is delivered to the correct user sessions by associating user account information with a cookie identifier string.
