Ad hoc cookies
We do use or allow third parties to set cookies on our Website. For example, like many companies, we use analytics to help us monitor our traffic, to get a sense of how many visitors the Website receives every day and which sections of the site users typically look at. It’s a key way of knowing how well we’re doing and what we can do better.
We may also use third party cookies to help us with market research, revenue tracking, improving site functionality and monitoring compliance with our terms and conditions.
Please note we do not allow advertising on our Website so there will be no cookies for this purpose.
The following covers third-party cookies used on our Website. Again, personal details are never stored.
|Cookies are sometimes used to monitor volume of user activity and behaviour across the site (pages visited, time spent on pages and so on).
|We pay for advertising from marketing partners on other sites, for example Facebook/LinkedIn/Instagram/Twitter/. These third parties sometimes require that we put a tiny image (“pixel”) from their site on any landing pages that users might arrive at. These pixels can create cookies for the third party so we can work with them to understand how successful marketing campaigns were. We also need to understand where a user came from, so that, if the user goes on to sign up on our Website, we can pay the correct marketing partner for their service.
This website uses retargeting services from the social network Facebook. Facebook collects certain information via cookies to determine which web pages are visited. This data is then used to associate your browser with interest and demographic categories, and serve Facebook ads based on your past visits to this website.
