We need your permission to save cookies on your machine. Please read the below carefully and let us know if you have any questions.
Cookies are small files, which are sent to your browser (for example Internet Explorer or Firefox) and stored on your computer's hard disk. They only identify your computer and not you personally. The cookies we use are:
Website session cookie
This cookie is set by our website's content management system (Squiz Matrix for our main site, Shopify for our online shop and WordPress for our rural Enterprise directory) and enables us to login and administer the site. It does not affect public users.
Google Analytics / web analytics cookies
These cookies are used to help record your use of this website. They are used to collect statistics about site usage such as when you last visited the site. This information is then used to improve the user experience on our website. The Google Analytics cookies contain randomly generated IDs used to recognise your browser when you read a page. The cookies contain no personal information and are used only for web analytics. The Google Analytics cookies are called _utma, _utmb, _umtc, _utmz, and _ga. They will appear in the list of cookies under peakdistrict.gov.uk. _utma tracks whether you have visited the website before. It is set to expire 2 years after your last visit. _utmb establishes a 'user session' and tracks which pages you look at on this visit to the website. It is set to expire 30 minutes after your last visit. _utmc is connected with _utmb and expires when you closed your browser, rather than just visit another website. _utmz tracks whether you have come to the website from a search engine, another website or have typed the web address directly into your browser. It is set to expire 6 months after it was last set. _ga is used to distinguish users and is set to expire 2 years after it was last set.
