What are Cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of data (text files) that a website – when visited by a user – asks your browser to store on your device in order to remember information about you, such as your login information. Those cookies that are set by us (ActOne Group) are called first party cookies. We also use third party cookies – which are from a domain different from the domain of the website you are visiting – for our advertising, analytical and marketing efforts. Third party cookies also enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website.
- To provide you with services available through our Websites;
- To assist you in navigation;
- To assist you in login and your ability to provide feedback;
- To enhance the performance and functionality of our Websites; and
- To collect statistical information in aggregate form regarding the utilization of our Websites.
How do we categorize Cookies?
Our Websites are scanned with a cookie scanning tool regularly to maintain a list as accurate as possible. We classify cookies in the following categories:
Strictly Necessary Cookies: These cookies are necessary for the Websites to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
Performance or Analytics Cookies: These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources, so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies, we will not know when you have visited our site.
Functional Cookies: These cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalization. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.
Targeting or Advertising Cookies: These cookies may be set through our site by third party partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. They do not store directly personal information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.
Most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or http://www.youronlinechoices.com.
How can I control Cookies?
You can opt-out of each cookie category (except strictly necessary cookies) in the cookie preference center.
What about other tracking technologies?
Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs"). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our Websites. This allows us to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Websites to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our Websites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.
