WHICH INFORMATION DO WE GATHER?

Every time you – or more precisely your computer – access stthomascrookes.org a cookie is informing us about your visit. The cookie tells us if you have been here before, how long your visit(s) last, which pages and articles you read, which browser and operating system you use, and so on.
