The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) requires organisations placing cookies onto visitors’ computers via their websites to obtain “consent” after providing clear and comprehensive information about how cookies and other tracking technologies are used.
In order to comply with we:
- Identify cookies and other tracking technologies served through this website, the purposes they fulfil and related information such as their expiry and whether they are first or third- party cookies.
- Provide ‘clear and comprehensive’ information about website cookies with the appropriate level of disclosure corresponding with the intrusiveness of each cookie.
- Decide on an appropriate strategy for obtaining consent for website cookies, taking into account their use and intrusiveness. Certain types of cookie may qualify for legal exemptions and where this is the case, consent will not be required for these cookies
What’s a Cookie?
A cookie is a piece of data contained in a very small text file that is stored in your browser or elsewhere on your hard drive. Cookies allow the Company to identify your device as you navigate through our publicly-accessible website (the Company Site) or our account portal. We also use them to recognize return visitors to the Company Site. This helps make navigating and interacting with the Company Site and our account portal more efficient, easy and meaningful.
By themselves, cookies do not identify you specifically. Rather, they recognize your web browser. So, unless you identify yourself specifically to the Company, like signing into the account portal, we don’t know who you are just because you visited the Company Site.
The Company uses both session and persistent cookies. Session cookies are cookies that disappear from your computer or browser when you turn off your computer. Persistent cookies stay on your computer even after you’ve turned it off.
You can turn off your web browser’s ability to accept cookies. But, if you do that, certain parts of the Company Site or account portal may not work for you.
