Cookies are small text files that are sent to, and stored on, your computer, smartphone or other device for accessing the internet, whenever you visit a website. Cookies are useful because they allow us to offer a user experience on our website that is as smooth as possible. At Joseph Homes LTD, we mostly use analytics cookies to help us understand users’ behaviour on our website, so that we can improve the online experience.

These include Flash cookies or Local Shared Objects, also known as LSOs. Read more about them at http://www.allaboutcookies.org/privacy-concerns/.
HOW TO MANAGE COOKIES

If you wish to amend your cookie preferences for this website, or any other websites, you can do this through your browser settings. Your browser’s ‘help’ function will tell you how to do this.
