What is a cookie?
A cookie is a text file (often including a unique identifier), which contains small amounts of information that are sent to your browser and stored on your computer, tablet or mobile device.

You can control your consent to these cookies through the cookie consent tool here.
Whenever you are on our Website, there may be “session cookies” and “persistent cookies” operating. Session cookies are temporary and only exist while you’re browsing our sites, whereas “persistent cookies” will remain on your browser (for a period defined by us) and will be activated again when you return to one of our Website.
Certain cookies we use require your consent and others do not. We only ask your consent when legally required to do so.
These are the types of cookies on the EVLife website:
Strictly necessary cookies: These are essential cookies required for the effective operation of our Website, including, for example, to remember your cookie setting.
Performance cookies: These allow us to see how our Website is used. For example, we can recognise and count the number of users and see how users move around our Website when using it. This helps us to improve our Website so that, for example, users can easily find what they are looking for.
Functionality cookies: These cookies are used to recognise you when you return to our Website. This enables us to personalise our content for you and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
Targeting cookies: These cookies record your visits to our Website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our Website more relevant to your interests.

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment (if enabled), the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where your data is sent
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
