How and Why Cookies Deployed On Our Websites

PLEASE READ OUR COOKIES POLICY CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS SITE

 

Cookies Policy

To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this too.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.

How do we use cookies?

A number of our pages use cookies to:

Protect your privacy. We use cookies to make sure that only authenticated devices are allowed to view your data. We do this by storing a token that is unique to you on your device. This token will only be present if you have authorised the device, either by following a link in an email / SMS, or by entering your details directly into the site. Enabling these cookies is required for the use of this service. Without these cookies we are unable to identify you and therefore protect your privacy. As such, without these cookies we will not allow any personal data to be viewed.

Enhance website performance. We use cookies to ensure our websites run smoothly and perform efficiently. These cookies do not contain personal information. Enabling these cookies is required for the use of this service. Without these cookies we are unable to provide full website functionality.

Third-party cookies

In addition to our own cookies, we may also use various cookies from third-parties for various purposes, examples detailed below:

Google Analytics This is a tool that we use to better understand how people are using our website. It is also used by Google to better understand the performance of its own websites. What information are they tracking? The Google Analytics cookie enables our website to recognise you if you visit again – as well as information about the pages you visit; when you visit; how long you visit our website; the IP address and what site you were looking at before arriving at our site (the referring url). See more information on Google Analytics: support.google.com/analytics

We also use Google to provide services such as Google Maps and YouTube. YouTube uses cookies to collect information and to help maintain the integrity of video statistics, prevent fraud and to improve the site experience, among other things. YouTube uses cookies on both youtube.com and on videos embedded from youtube.com. Youtube does not have an independant cookie policy. Therefore, see more information at their parent company: policies.google.com/technologies/cookies.

We use Facebook to tailor specific offers and information which may be of interest to individuals on the Facebook platform. See more information: facebook.com/policies/cookies/

We use a third party supplier to provide the Chat Service on our website. The supplier may use cookies, over which we have no control. The cookies are used to manage your chat session, to track your preferences and to personalise your experience. You may disable persistent cookies. However, if you disable the session cookie you will not be able to use the Chat Service. If you wish to find out more about the supplier’s use of cookies please refer to their privacy policy at getgist.com

How to control cookies

You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – for details, see aboutcookies.org. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionality may not work.
