We want to let you know that White Orca may set cookies for your web browser as you visit or use our sites & hosted applications. Our site currently only uses cookies for Google Analytics, meaning that we use cookies just to help count how many people have visited the website and to see what other websites they might have come from. We can then use this information to improve the website for all visitors.

What do we use them for?

We use different types of cookies for several purposes, which are exclusively:

  • Google Analytics cookies, to check on browser information, what you’re looking at, where you’ve come from and the session state
  • Session cookies – Maintaining your “logged-in” session using PHP session variables across the White Orca site & White Orca applications available through the site. This ensures the security of you & your information. A PHP session creates a unique ID which can be stored in a cookie, or maintained in the URL. This unique ID is kept alive by your current internet browser session & can be discarded by simply closing your browser

Can you turn them off?

You may configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
If you reject all cookies, you may not be able to use White Orca applications or services that require you to “login”
Where we introduce & provide applications or services that require specific use of cookies we will highlight and provide an opt-in checkbox to allow you to permit the use of those cookies
