The Site uses “cookies”. Cookies enable our website to save and retrieve information that you enter. A cookie is a commonly used piece of software that tracks your website visits and preferences and is capable of enhancing your visit to the sites. It may remain on your computer after the Internet session finishes (until the cookie expires or is deleted by you).
If you do not want to accept cookies, you can disable them by adjusting the settings on your internet browser.

However, you may still be able to access Jamie’s Whaling Station Ltd. services by other methods such as personal contact, telephone, or mail.
The Sites use web analytics tools to help analyze how the Sites are used and to improve visitors’ online experience. These tools work by tagging web pages to capture a limited amount of data (including the IP address of the computer, device, or network being used to access the pages). This data is used for aggregate reporting purposes. None of this data is used by Jamie’s Whaling Station Ltd. or its service providers to identify you.
The Sites also use remarketing tools, such as Google’s Ads remarketing (“Ads”).

This allows user behaviour to be tracked after they have been redirected to the provider’s website by clicking on a Facebook ad. This enables us to measure the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes. The data collected in this way is anonymous to us, i.e. we do not see the personal data of individual users. However, this data is stored and processed by Facebook, which is why we are informing you, based on our knowledge of the situation. Facebook may link this information to your Facebook account and also use it for its own promotional purposes, in accordance with Facebook’s Data Usage Policy https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. You can allow Facebook and its partners to place ads on and off Facebook. A cookie may also be stored on your computer for these purposes.
