What are Cookies?
Cookies are small text files which a website may place on your computer or device when you visit a site. The cookies will help the website recognize your device the next time you visit. Web beacons, pixels or other similar files can also do the same thing. We use the term “cookies” in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.
Cookies serve many functions. For example, they can help us to remember your username and preferences, analyze how well our website is performing or allow us to recommend content we believe will be most relevant to you.
Purpose of Cookies
We group our cookies into the categories outlined below.
- Operating our Website
Some cookies are essential for the operation of our site. This includes cookies for the following purposes
– Access – we use these cookies to identify subscribers and ensure access to all pages.
– Performance – we use these cookies to monitor website performance. This allows us to provide a high-quality experience by quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise. For example, we might use performance cookies to track error messages, and to determine improvements to our website.
– Functionality – we use functionality cookies to allow us to remember your preferences. For example, we use functionality cookies to provide you with enhanced services, such as allowing you to watch a video online or comment on a blog.
- Third party cookies on our website
We also use third party cookies on our website for the following reasons:
– to help us monitor traffic on our website (like many companies, we use Google Analytics to do this);
– to identify fraudulent or non-human traffic;
– to assist with market research;
– to improve website functionality;
– to monitor compliance with our terms and conditions and copyright policy.
Use of pixels in emails
Our emails often contain a single, campaign-unique “web beacon pixel” to tell us whether, and how many times, our emails are opened and verify any clicks through to links or advertisements within the email. We use this information for purposes including:
– Determining which of our emails are more interesting to users;
– Determining users’ activity and engagement with our products and services;
– Determining how many users have clicked on various places on our website.
The pixel will be deleted when you delete the email. If you do not wish the pixel to be downloaded to your device, you should select to receive emails from us in plain text rather than HTML via your email provider settings.
