How we use cookies on our websites

We use cookies and similar tools across our websites to improve their performance and enhance your user experience.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file sent to your browser by a website that you visit. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier, the site name and some digits and numbers. It allows a website to remember things like your specific preferences. Most websites you visit will use cookies in order to improve your user experience by enabling that website to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit to that website using a ‘session cookie’ or for repeat visits to the website using a ‘persistent cookie’. Cookies can make your next visit easier and make the site more useful to you. Cookies play an important role because without them, using the web would be a much more frustrating experience.

There are many functions cookies serve. For example, they can help us to remember your username and preferences, analyse how well our website is performing, or even allow us to recommend content we believe will be most relevant to you.

Certain cookies contain personal information, for example, if you click on “remember me” when logging in, a cookie will store your username. Most cookies won’t collect information that identifies you personally, and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our websites, or a user’s general geographical location.

What sort of cookies do we use?

Generally, cookies perform up to four different functions:

  1. Essential cookies

    Some cookies are essential for the operation of our website. For example, some cookies allow us to identify users and ensure they can access the subscription only pages. If a subscriber opts to disable these cookies, the user will not be able to access all of the content that a subscription entitles them to. Other essential cookies include the ability to add Items to a Basket and to enable the Checkout process.

  2. Performance Cookies

    We utilise other cookies to analyse how our visitors use our websites and to monitor website performance. This allows us to provide a high-quality experience by customising our offering and quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise. For example, we might use performance cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages.

  3. Functionality Cookies

    We use functionality cookies to allow us to remember your preferences. For example, cookies save you the trouble of typing in your username every time you access the site, and recall your customisation preferences, such as which regional edition of the website you want to see when you log in.

    We also use functionality cookies to provide you with enhanced services such as allowing you to watch a video online or comment on a blog.

  4. Behaviourally Targeted Advertising Cookies

    Kiron Interactive websites do not make use of cookies for advertising purposes and we do not target adverts or allow third parties to target adverts on our websites. This does not mean that another website could not use information that you visited our website to provide targeted adverting through their own cookie usage policy.

Does anyone else use cookies on Kiron Interactive websites?

Kiron Interactive websites do not make use of cookies for advertising purposes. Our websites contain no external banners, promotions or other advertising. We do not allow third parties to target adverts on our websites.

We use analytics service providers to help us monitor our website traffic. We may also use third party cookies to help us with market research, revenue tracking, improving site functionality and monitoring compliance with our terms and conditions and copyright policy.

Our privacy policy explains how we protect your privacy in our use of cookies and other information.
