Cookies, IP and measuring our visitors 

A cookie is a small piece of text sent to your browser by futureartstudio.co.uk. It helps our website to remember information about your visit and inform us about your preferences. Our website uses cookies and other technologies for automated storage data for statistical purposes, implementation services and advertising. Using our sites without changing the browser settings you agree to the use of cookies.

An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a set of numbers, which is assigned to your computer during a browsing session. It is automatically logged by our servers and used to collect traffic data about visitors to our Website. We do not use your IP address to identify you personally.

We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.

The information we collect from analytics helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better.

These services provide social buttons and similar features which we use on our website – such as the “Like” button.

To do so we embed code that they provide and we do not control ourselves. To function their buttons generally know if you’re logged in; for example Facebook use this to say “x of your friends like this”. We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it.

Social networks therefore could know that you’re viewing this website, if you use their services (that isn’t to say they do, but their policies may change). As our website is remarkably inoffensive we imagine this is not a concern for most users.
