What are cookies? Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information. Cookies set by Us are referred to as "first party cookies". Cookies set by parties other than Us are referred to as "third party cookies". Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.
The specific types of first and third party cookies served through our Websites and the purposes they perform are described in the table below (please note that the specific cookies served may vary depending on the specific Online Properties you visit):
What cookies to you use?
Necessary cookies allow us to offer you the best possible experience when accessing and navigating through our Websites and using their features. For example, these cookies help our infrastructure to load pages quicker, let us recognise that you have created an account and have logged into that account to access the content. Necessary cookies are usually first-party (set by Us), but there are some third-party cookies which we also deem as necessary, e.g. Segment and Intercom, which allows us to provide authenticated in-app chat support to our Admin Users or visitors to our Website.
We use analytics cookies to monitor usage of our Sites. This information helps us plan marketing campaigns, improve our site and develop new features.
- Google Analytics
- Google Tag Manager
We use the following cookies to track information regarding the performance of our advertising campaigns, and for re-targeting purposes
- Google Ads
What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons? Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs"). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our Websites or opened an e-mail including them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within a website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to the website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.
Do you serve targeted advertising? Third parties may serve cookies on your computer or mobile device to serve advertising through our Site. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. This can be accomplished by them using cookies or web beacons to collect information about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services of potential interest to you. The information collected through this process does not enable us or them to identify your name, contact details or other details that directly identify you unless you choose to provide these.
