We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. We aim to be as open and transparent as possible around the information we collect when you visit and use our Site, including through the use of “Cookies”.
Note to our Users in the EU 🇪🇺
Using information collected from Cookies: where we want to use the information that Cookies and similar technologies collect, we either need your consent or we will do so based on the legitimate interest ground. In certain cases we rely on our legitimate interests to use the data collected by Cookies. To do this we conduct an assessment to make sure the purposes for which we use your data are fair and that your privacy rights are considered.
3. What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files which are stored on, and accessed from, your computer or mobile device when you visit or use the Site.
4. How long will Cookies stay on my device?
Most of the Cookies we use are erased from your device immediately after your browser session terminates (“Session Cookies”). Other Cookies remain saved on your device and enable us to recognize your device in the event of a later visit to our Site (“Persistent Cookies”).
5. First and third party Cookies
First-party Cookies are Cookies that belong to us and that we place on your device. Third-party Cookies are Cookies that another party, which provides us a service, places on your device through your use of our Site.
For example, to administer our Site and for research purposes, we have contracted third-party service providers to track and analyze statistical usage and volume information from our Users.
Third-party Cookies may also be placed on your device by our business partners so that they can use them to advertise products and services to you elsewhere on the Internet.
6. Do we track whether users open our emails?
Our emails may contain a single “web beacon pixel” which enables us to verify whether our emails (and any links or advertisements within the email) are opened. We may use this information to determine whether our emails are of interest to Users, to approach Users who do not open our emails and verify whether they wish to continue receiving them and to inform our advertisers in aggregate of the audience size for their advertisements.
Please note that such “web beacon pixel” will be deleted once you delete the email from your email account.
If you do not wish the “web beacon pixel” to be downloaded to your device at all, please set your email account settings to receive emails from us in plain text rather than HTML.
7. What sort of Cookies do our Site use?
Generally, our Cookies perform the following functions:
Essential Cookies – those Cookies are essential to navigate around the Site and use its features. For example, they allow us to remember your Cookie preferences and to verify if something is not working properly, so we can fix it quickly.
Analytical and Performance Cookies – those Cookies are used to analyze how our Users use our Site and to monitor the Site’ performance. For example, we might use performance Cookies to keep track of which pages are frequently visited and from what locations our Users come from. We might also use these Cookies to highlight Site services that we think will be of interest to you based on your usage of the Site. We generally use third party Cookies to perform these services, for example, Google Analytics and Segment.
Functionality Cookies – those Cookies allow us to operate the Site in accordance with your preferences when browsing or using the Site. For example, such Cookies save you the trouble of typing in a username every time you access the Site, and recall your customization preferences, such as your preferred text size, fonts, languages and other parts of the Site that are alterable.
