A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed. Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
Essential and Functional Cookies
We use these cookies to enable certain online functionality including:
- access your information so we can provide you with customised content and experiences, or remember the last page you visited on the Services;
- identify returning users, registrants and subscribers and allow them to be presented with a personalised version of the site;
- eliminating the need for returning users to re-enter their login details;
- commenting on our sites;
- maintain your settings and authenticate your identity while you are logged in to the Services;
- to support security measures and to assist in identifying possible fraudulent or abusive activities.
Analytical Performance and Measurement Cookies
We use these cookies to measure users’ behaviour to better develop our Services. By using analytics services provided by third parties such as Google Analytics and ComScore, we can analyse and measure which pages are viewed and how long for and which links are followed, and I can use this information to provide more content which is of interest. We also use this analysis to report on our performance and to sell advertising.
Targeting and Behavioural Advertising Cookies
We use these cookies to:
- measure general user behaviour across our sites and third party sites to build a profile based on users browsing patterns so that we and third parties can target advertising to users that will be more relevant to users’ interests. This means that if, for example, users visit a page with a review about a particular camera then the cookie will collect this information and we may target adverts for that camera to those users and, if users visit third party sites that are part of the same advertising network, those third parties may target adverts for that camera to those users;
- to create profiles that trusted third parties can buy to allow them to better target their advertising with more relevant content; and
- keep track of the number of users who saw a particular ad or visited a particular page of one of our websites, analyse the effectiveness of our ads, and provide auditing, research and reporting for advertisers.
