Why we use them

When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, your computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested
  • measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast
  • analysing anonymised data to help us understand how people interact with our website so we can make them better

You can manage these small files and learn more about them from the article, Internet Browser cookies- what they are and how to manage them

Busy busy here at The Biggest Twitch Head Quarters

Another busy day here in The Biggest Twitch office aka our front room! We are giving a talk in Preston, Lancashire this evening, then over to Norfolk for some more guiding. We are also putting together plans for our 2014 trips, these include Finland and Norway in May/June and a new tour to see spectacular bird migration in Estonia in the Autumn. The Estonia trip will be a five day break - 1st - 5th October - to coincide with mass migration of birds south through this wonderful country. If you love bird migration this is a tour for you! As always it will be a small group tour so if you would like more details or to reserve a place, no obligation at this stage, do drop us a line.
