What are cookies?
“Cookies” are small text files containing unique ID numbers that are placed on your internet enabled device (such as your computer or mobile device) by websites that you visit. They are used in order for websites to work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to website providers. For example, they allow a website provider to remember your login details and website preferences (so that you don’t have to reconfigure your settings each time you log-in to your account), and to better understand how you use its website. Similar technologies such as web beacons, pixel tags and GIFs, essentially also do the same thing. For the purposes of this Cookies Policy, we will use the term “cookies” to include these similar technologies.
a. Operation of our services. These cookies are essential and necessary to perform the core functionality of our Online Sites and Services. In particular:
- Fraud Prevention and Detection. Cookies that we deploy through our Online Sites and Services help us learn things about computers and web browsers you use to access our Online Services. This information helps us monitor for and detect potentially harmful or illegal use of our Services.
c. Better marketing and advertising. Cookies can also help us provide more effective advertising on our Online Sites and Services. They allow us to measure how many times an advertisement is viewed or clicked on, and better customise personalised news/updates, offers and advertisements to you so that the marketing messages you receive on our Online Sites and Services are relevant to you and your interests. They also allow us to retain your shopping history and use details of the products you have previously purchased to make suggestions to you for other products which we believe you will also be interested in. They also help prevent you from seeing the same advertisement multiple times.
