Where possible, security measures are set in place to prevent unauthorised access to our cookies and similar technologies. A unique identifier ensures that only we and/or our authorised service providers have access to cookie data.
Service providers are companies that help us with various aspects of our business, such as website operations, services, applications, advertisements and tools. We use some authorised service providers to help us to serve you relevant advertisements on our services and other places on the internet. These service providers may also place cookies on your device via our services (third party cookies). They may also collect information that helps them identify your device, such as IP-address or other unique or device identifiers.
What are cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies?
Like most websites, we use technologies that are essentially small data files placed on your computer, tablet, mobile phone, or other devices (referred to collectively as a ‘device’) that allow us to record certain pieces of information whenever you visit or interact with our websites, services, applications, messaging, and tools.
Cookies – Small text files (typically made up of letters and numbers) placed in the memory of your browser or device when you visit a website or view a message. Cookies allow a website to recognise a device or browser. There are several types of cookies:
- Session cookies expire at the end of your browser session and allow us to link your actions during that browser session.
- Persistent cookies are stored on your device in between browser sessions, allowing us to remember your preferences or actions across multiple websites.
- First-party cookies are set by the website you are visiting.
- Third-party cookies are set by a third-party website separate from the website you are visiting.
Cookies can be disabled or removed by tools that are available in most commercial browsers. The preferences for each browser you use will need to be set separately and different browsers offer different functionality and options.
Web beacons – Small graphic images (also known as ‘pixel tags’ or ‘clear GIFs’) that may be included on our websites, services, applications, messaging, and tools, that typically work in conjunction with cookies to identify our users and user behaviour.
Similar technologies – Technologies that store information in your browser or device utilising local shared objects or local storage, such as flash cookies, HTML 5 cookies, and other web application software methods. These technologies can operate across all your browsers, and in some instances may not be fully managed by your browser and may require management directly through your installed applications or device. We do not use these technologies for storing information to target advertising to you on or off our websites.
As most of the online services, our website uses first-party and third-party cookies for several purposes. First-party cookies are mostly necessary for the website to function the right way, and they do not collect any of your personally identifiable data.
The third-party cookies used on our website are mainly for understanding how the website performs, how you interact with our website, keeping our services secure, providing advertisements that are relevant to you, and all in all providing you with a better and improved user experience and help speed up your future interactions with our website.
We offer certain website features, services, applications, and tools that are available only using these technologies. You are always free to block, delete, or disable these technologies if your browser, installed application, or device so permits. However, if you decline cookies or other similar technologies, you may not be able to take advantage of certain website features, services, applications, or tools. You may also be required to re-enter your password more frequently during your browsing session.
Generally, these technologies allow our websites, services, applications, and tools to store relevant information in your browser or device and later read that information to identify you to our servers or internal systems. Where applicable, we protect our cookies and other similar technologies to help ensure that only we and/or our authorised service providers can interpret them by assigning them a unique identifier that is designed for interpretation only by us. We do not store any of your personal information on any of our cookies or other similar technologies.
Any personal information that we collect and store through use of these technologies is first obtained through notice and consent: We obtain your consent by providing you with transparent notice of use of the technologies and providing you with the opportunity to make a choice to disable these technologies as set forth in the ‘How can I control the cookie preferences?’ section. Our uses of such technologies fall into the following general categories:
Marketing – We may use first-party or third-party cookies and web beacons to deliver content, including advertisements relevant to your interests, on our websites or on third party websites. This includes using technologies to understand the usefulness to you of the advertisements and content that have been delivered to you, such as whether you have clicked on an advertisement.
