West Wood Club (“we”, “our”, “us”) use cookies on the site www.westwood.ie (“Service”). By using the Service, you agree to the use of cookies.

Our Cookies Policy briefly explains what cookies are, how we use them and your choices regarding cookies and further information about cookies.

What are Cookies, and how are they used?

Cookies are small pieces of text sent by your web browser by a website you visit. A cookie file is stored in your web browser and allows the Service or third-party to recognise you and make your next visit easier and the Service more useful to you.

In general, cookies can be “session” or “persistent” cookies.

Session Cookies are temporary cookies that are not stored on your computer or mobile device, but they are created temporarily in your browser’s subfolder while you are visiting a website and they are not stored on your computer or mobile device. An example, a session cookie is also used to remember your language preference when viewing the site. These session cookies are erased when you close your browser, or after 20 minutes of inactivity therefore once you leave the site, the session cookie is deleted.

Persistent cookies are those placed on your computer or mobile device for a predefined length of time when you visit this site, and they remain in your browser’s subfolder and are activated again once you visit the website that created that particular cookie. A persistent cookie remains in the browser’s subfolder for the duration period set within the cookie’s file.

Cookies can help a website to arrange content to match your preferred interests more quickly but cannot be used by themselves to identify you.

Key tips for safe and responsible cookie-based Web browsing

Due to their flexibility and the fact that our service uses cookies by default, cookies are almost inevitable. Disabling cookies will lock a user out of many of the most widely-used sites on the Internet like YouTube, Gmail, Yahoo mail, and many others. Even search settings require cookies for language settings. Here are some tips you can use to ensure worry-free cookie-based browsing:


● Customize your browser’s cookie settings to reflect your comfort level with cookie security or use our guide to delete cookies.
● If you are very comfortable with cookies and you are the only person using your computer, you may want to set long expiration time frames for storing your personal access information, including your browsing history.
● If you share access on your computer, you may want to set your browser to clear private browsing data every time you close your browser. While not as secure as rejecting cookies outright, this option allows you to access cookie-based websites while deleting any sensitive information after your browsing session.
● Make sure your browser is updated and if you haven’t already, set your browser to update automatically. This will eliminate security vulnerabilities caused by outdated browsers because many cookie-based exploits are based on exploiting older browsers’ security shortcomings.
