Although that was technically the end of our cookies story, we figured that one or two of you might possess above average interest in cookies and want to know exactly what types of cookies we use, how and why we use them, and the different settings you can adjust in your web browser or on your hand-held high-tech device. So, if you identify as one or two of those people with above average interest in cookies – just keep scrolling, this one is for you.
What are cookies and what do we use them for?
A cookie is a small text file that gets stored on your computer, phone or tablet when you’re visiting a website. We, or one of our partners, place cookies on our website to improve our site and to make sure that basic features and services function properly.
Some of these cookies store really basic information about our site’s users, and that really basic information really helps us help you navigate our website really easily. But not all of them are easy to identify (unless you are entering contact information like your e-mail address in a form somewhere on purpose, well then, we do have that piece of information saved about you), so we thought we’d break it down for you. Below, you can read all about the different types of cookies we collect and store on our site, how long we save them for and how they are used.
The name kind of gives it away, but just to be super clear – necessary cookies are very, very necessary. Without them, basic website functions like site navigation and accessibility would not be possible, and we would not even be able to provide you with a properly working website to visit. And that would just not be fun for anybody.
To be able to save your preferred settings or personal details for future visits, we use functional cookies. Without these types of cookies, we wouldn’t be able to tailor our services and features the way you like it. Functional cookies are necessary as they allow us to make sure that your visit is as easy and smooth as possible. That means that the next time you come back to our site, you won’t have to repeat annoying things like choosing the language that is most relevant to you. You can just jump straight in and check out what’s new in the world of liquid oats. Pretty nice, huh?

Analytical cookies collect general information and analytics about the way you use our site and services, so that we can track our website visitor’s behaviours and traffic and other geeky stuff like that. To be totally transparent, these cookies are probably the creepiest ones. But to not freak you out completely, we can’t see exactly who does what how many times – it’s just all a bunch of numbers to us.

Sorry, we lied earlier. These cookies are definitely the creepiest ones. Third-party cookies are purely placed on a website to track visitor’s activities, with the intent of using that information for advertising purposes. Which is why we simply decided not to place them on our website.
And if you don’t like the thought of Google Analytics collecting and storing information about you, there’s this web browser add-on called Google Analytics Opt-out that you can install that will help you out of that situation.
In the spirit of privacy, all of this cookie finetuning stuff is entirely up to you, but just keep in mind that visiting our site may not be the smoothest experience of your life if you choose to opt out of all the cookies. But we’re going to leave that one up to you.
If you have any questions (like any at all) about our cookies and how we use them, please contact us.
