Gaia Holistics’ Practices Regarding

Gaia Holistics does not currently use or set permanent cookies on visitors’ web browsers. The only cookie we employ is a CAPTCHA (for Form Control on various forms). This is an anti-spamming feature, which creates a session-only cookie, in order to block malicious use of the forms by spammers.

In addition to Gaia using session cookies on our websites, the following third-party features may set and access cookies on your computer, in order to function correctly.

Please consult these third-party vendors privacy policies for information relating to their use of cookies. These companies use of cookies is subject to their own privacy policies, not the Gaia Privacy Policy.

* If you choose to receive information from other companies we may sometimes, with your permission, disclose your personal information those companies. We will only do so where those companies have undertaken not to use your personal data for any purpose other than to provide information to you. If you decide that you no longer want to receive information from a particular company, you should contact that company directly. You should be aware that if you choose to give any personal information to another company, the uses to which that information may be put would be by that company's privacy policy. Our policy will no longer apply.


Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer, which hold information that a website can read. This information is used to allow the publishers of any website to provide you with a greater viewing experience. For example, cookies can be used to speed up the download for sites you have previously visited, or to authenticate your visit and prevent you from having to log in every time you visit the website, or to store information you have provided the website on an earlier occasion such as passwords etc.

It is important to note however, that although they contain information relevant to your use of cookies, they cannot carry viruses or install software on your computer. Web sites that use cookies usually do so to ensure that they give you the best experience when visiting the website. If you continue onto any web site that employs cookies, without changing your settings, the owners assume that you are happy to receive all cookies on the websites.


There are two types of JavaScript cookies- permanent, and session-only. The first one stores its information in a physical file on the client's computer called "cookie.txt", with the stored data "permanently" available. Session only cookies, on the other hand, store information in the browser memory, which is only available for the duration of the browser session. In other words, the data stored inside a session cookie is available from the time of storage until the browser is closed. Moving from page to page during this time does not erase the data. Session only cookies last only for the session; they are erased when the you close your web browser.

Cookies are further categorised into four different areas:

  • Necessary
  • Performance
  • Functionality
  • Targeting


Cookies that are categorised into the 'Necessary' category are necessary in order for the website to operate and enable services that are specifically asked for, such as shopping basket functionality or online billing services. The website cannot function without these cookies.


Cookies that are categorised into the 'Performance' category are used to improve the performance of a website, for example, to collect non-personal data and improve how the website works. An example of a cookie in this category is the use of a 'splash count' cookie. When used on a website it records how many times you have viewed a particular page. On your next visit to the website, this information can then be used to determine whether you are taken to the relevant ‘splash’ page, or directly to the homepage.


Cookies that are categorised into the 'Functionality' category are used to offer additional functionality to a website. For example, a cookie could store the region you live in, or the language that you have selected to browse the website in.


Cookies that are categorised into the 'Targeting' category can be used to offer you more relevant advertising on a website and are used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement. Many companies such as Amazon, Virgin, Yahoo, use external companies to provide and serve adverts on their websites. These companies may use information (not including personally identifiable information) about your visits to those and other websites, in order to personalise advertisements on the sites, relevant to your interests or web browsing habits. For example say you googled Yamaha motorbikes, you might experience adverts on another site you visit featuring Yamaha motorbikes.
