These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is anonymous and is only used to improve how a site works.
We categorize the following as performance cookies:

Functionality cookies – These cookies allow a site to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, a site may be able to provide you with local information or news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located.

They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog.

Targeting cookies – These cookies are used to deliver advertisements more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the site operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a site and this information is shared with other organizations such as advertisers. Quite often they will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organization.
At CHScottEnterprises we do not have third party advertising on our site so we do not use these targeting cookies. If you click on an CHScottEnterprises advert on a non-CHScottEnterprises site, a cookie may be used to log which site you are on to measure the effectiveness of our advertising. CHScottEnterprises currently uses www.DidIt.com to monitor our advertising in this way.
That’s it in a nutshell. The short of it is – we are interested in maintaining your privacy and creating a valuable, robust site, with the best user experience possible.
