Cookies and other similar technologies

We use cookies and other similar technologies on our website, products and services. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer that hold information that a website can read. For example, cookies can be used to authenticate your visit and prevent you from having to log in every time you visit the website.

We collect both personal and non-personal information from you when you use our websites, products and services. For more information on how we deal with your information, please see our Privacy Policy.

We and our partners also use other technologies, including data stored on your web browser or device, identifiers associated with your device and other software for similar purposes. In this policy, we refer to “Cookies” and other similar technologies as “Cookies.” These technologies can be used to recognise your device as it interacts with our services. For instance, we can recognise when you visit pages on our or others’ sites, use parts of an app or when you open emails, we send you. These technologies include the following:

Pixel tags: Pixel tags are small blocks of code we install on our webpages, emails or advertisements. These are used to relay information about how you interact with our services and may contain information about your device and browser. For example, information about your device type, operating system, browser type and version, website visited, time of visit, referring website, IP address, whether you’ve opened an email or clicked on an advertisement. Pixels also provide the means by which third parties can set and read browser cookies from our websites.

Local storage: Where other types of cookies cannot be used, local storage allows us to store additional data to help improve your experience while using our services.

IP address: Every device that is connected to the internet has an Internet Protocol address. When you interact with our services, we and our partners use your IP address for security purposes, for example, to prevent fraud. We may also use your IP address to identify your location and display content that is more appropriate to you.

We do not control third party cookies and cannot access them due to the way that cookies work, as cookies can only be accessed by the party who originally set them.

We encourage you to review the privacy and cookies polices of the third parties we work with for more information about cookies they set and how to manage them.
