We strive to comply with the W3C WAI’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 and aim for our pages to conform to a minimum of Level A compliance. Wherever possible, Level AA and Level AAA requirements are also met.
Every page on the website has been designed to be compliant with the HTML 4.01 (Transitional) and CSS2 (cascading style sheet) standards. The W3C logo on this page not only certifies that this is the case, but allows it to be verified using the W3C online validation service. You can use the W3C HTML Validator and CSS Validator to show that our website is fully compliant to these standards. While we use Bobby to test for accessibility, it is just one aspect of our testing procedure. As a computer programme, the Bobby test is not as reliable as expert evaluation.
We use a feature of your internet browser called a ‘cookie’ on the The Home of the Handmade website. We do not use ‘cookies’ to retrieve personal information about you from your computer. We will only gain such information if you have knowingly and willingly provided such information to us.
We understand how important it is to treat the data we capture correctly. We do not, nor will we ever sell, rent or loan any data to 3rd parties that identifies you without your consent.
What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small file that asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about webpage traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.
This allows us to collect anonymous information about how visitors use our website. It allows us to identify trends, popular types of content and make informed decisions on how to improve the site. It is not linked to any data that allows us to identify users individually.
You can set your browser to accept or reject all specific ‘cookies’. You can also set your browser to alert you each time a ‘cookie’ is presented to your computer. You can delete ‘cookies’ that have been stored on your computer but remember, if you prevent us from placing ‘cookies’ on your computer during your visit, or you subsequently delete a ‘cookie’ that has been placed, it will not be possible for you to use our website effectively.
By disabling your ‘cookies’ from the browser settings, you will be restricting the ‘cookies’ that The Home of the Handmade uses to manage its website and this will have an impact on how the website will function. This will apply to all websites once ‘cookies’ are disabled via your browser settings and not only The Home of the Handmade’s website.
If you would like to restrict or block ‘cookies’ that are set by us and other websites, you can do this through your web browser settings. Instructions for how to do this for the four most used web browsers are below. For other web browsers, please use the Help function on your browser for details on how to do this. For information on how to restrict or block ‘cookies’ on your mobile phone, you will need to refer to your handset manual.
