Policy, what we use and how they work.

These web pages use something called "Session Cookies". They differ from "Persistant Cookies" which gather information about you, or save your preferences and pump out advertising, in that they only carry small bits of information from one page to the next, then when you have finished the "session" is over and they expire. Nothing is retained or passed back to the web site.

They are used in only one set of circumstances.
When you log in to upload images they remember who you are from one page to the next, so that you do not have to repeatedly enter your Name, Membership Number and the Judging Class for your images. When you have finished they disappear. Try this, Log in to the image Upload page, bookmark the page then log out again. Now try using the bookmark. You get a session expired message and you need to log in again, because the Upload page has already forgotten who you are.

Similarly if you stayed on the Upload page but closed down your browser, or switched off your computer, when you come back you get the same message for the same reason.

Frankly not only do we not gather information about you, we don't care about your computing habits :-)

The use of cookies in this manner is exempted from the requirement of informed consent, according to CRITERION B: (the cookie is “strictly necessary in order for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide the service”). of Article 5.3 of Directive 2002/58/EC, as amended by Directive 2009/136/EC.

Which is why you don't see those really annoying pop up message boxes asking for your approval every time you visit this site.
