How to control and delete cookies
Cookies are small text files that web servers give to browsers to store on users' machines. They enable the website to recognise requests as coming from the same browser and they can be essential for the operation of an application, but they can also be used to track user behaviour.
In your web browser you can control which types of cookies you allow. You can turn cookies on or off using your browser's settings. You can also delete cookies and clear your browser's cache (history).
See the following links describing how to do this on some popular browsers:
Please see below for a list of cookies this website uses:
__utma Cookie (Google Analytics)
A persistent cookie - remains on a computer, unless it expires or the cookie cache is cleared. It tracks visitors. Metrics associated with the Google __utma cookie include: first visit (unique visit), last visit (returning visit). This also includes Days and Visits to purchase calculations which afford ecommerce websites with data intelligence around purchasing sales funnels.
__utmb Cookie and __utmc Cookie (Google Analytics)
These cookies work in tandem to calculate visit length. Google __utmb cookie demarks the exact arrival time, then Google __utmc registers the precise exit time of the user.
Because __utmb counts entrance visits, it is a session cookie, and expires at the end of the session, e.g. when the user leaves the page. A timestamp of 30 minutes must pass before Google cookie __utmc expires. Given__utmc cannot tell if a browser or website session ends. Therefore, if no new page view is recorded in 30 minutes the cookie is expired.
This is a standard 'grace period' in web analytics. Ominture and WebTrends among many others follow the same procedure.
__utmz Cookie (Google Analytics)
Cookie __utmz monitors the HTTP Referrer and notes where a visitor arrived from, with the referrer siloed into type (Search engine (organic or cpc), direct, social and unaccounted). From the HTTP Referrer the __utmz Cookie also registers, what keyword generated the visit plus geolocation data.
This cookie lasts six months. In tracking terms this Cookie is perhaps the most important as it will tell you about your traffic and help with conversion information such as what source / medium / keyword to attribute for a Goal Conversion.
__utmv Cookie (Google Analytics)
Google __utmv Cookie lasts "forever". It is a persistant cookie. It is used for segmentation, data experimentation and the __utmv works hand in hand with the __utmz cookie to improve cookie targeting capabilities.

Retention of your information
We will not retain your information for any longer than we think is necessary. The GDPR does not set out any specific minimum or maximum periods for keeping your personal data. It says we must keep data no longer than is necessary for the purpose we obtained it for. This protects you the individual by making sure irrelevant out of date information is deleted.

Jenny's dog training classes were excellent. Her clear and calm approach worked well with our excitable puppy
Jenny came to meet our puppy Milo as he was scared of other dogs and displaying signs of separation anxiety. Jenny spent an hour with us, and gave us some tips of how to help Milo work things out. Namely, introduced tasty treats, of cheese and chicken/ ham pieces, playing "find it", and distracting him when other dogs are approaching, and so on. We followed Jenny's advice to the letter, and he is now doing brilliantly! He looks at other dogs, and greets appropriately, then looks to me for a treat, knowing he has done well!

A fun learning experience for my puppy, he has turned into a very well-mannered dog thanks to the help of the puppy classes
Jenny is very good. Has been much help to me and Rio
Jenny has been great training Jack & Jill, from day one I have seen improvements and they are a joy to live with; I have never had such well trained dogs. Jenny has been really patient and has helped me find ways to train the puppies around my commitments, even taking them for intensive training when I have been busy studying. Two puppies at once may not have been the best idea, but Jenny has helped me make it work and I wouldn't trade them for the world
Thank you for the help you have given me with the training of Otto. I hope that your business goes from strength to strength as you are an excellent teacher.
Thank you so much for coming today. We are really impressed with your ideas and we can see Bella is already responding.
Jenny's improver classes were fantastic for my lively rescue dog, Sam. Her patience and understanding with both of us, and innovative approaches to his behavioural issues have been invaluable. Sam is now a much calmer, happier dog who adores Jenny!
Very good introduction to obedience for Emerson, but excellent learning for us on how to teach him.
Jenny has been an invaluable part of our lives since we bought our first ever puppy. The puppy and improver classes gave us the skills needed to help develop our puppy into a wonderfully rounded, sociable and fun dog to be with. Jenny's knowledge, patience and calm nature is so reassuring for us and we look forward to her classes every week as our one year old grows from strength to strength in her training - not to mention how much fun our lively dog has in her classes, she simply adores Jenny! We also use Jenny's dog sitting and walking services, which is an amazing resource to be able to call upon. Jenny is 100% trustworthy, reliable and caring - a combination that is as valuable as gold dust. Suffice to say we feel sorry for people that don't have Jenny in their lives.
