5. What types of Cookies do we use?

We mainly use Cookies to make our services work and to improve our services. We currently use Cookies for the following purposes:

  • Operation of our service: We use Cookies to monitor login, session and status data. This allows us to know, for example, if you are logged in or not.

This information may be used to help us to improve, administer and diagnose problems with our Site and server. Our Site may also use other technical methods to track visitor usage, including web beacons. (“Web beacons” are small pieces of data that are embedded in images on the pages of a website.) We may also use these technical methods to analyse the traffic patterns on our Site, such as the frequency with which our users visit various parts of our Site. These technical methods may involve the transmission of information either directly to us, or to another party authorised by us to collect information on our behalf.

6. Third Party Cookies

Some Cookies that have been set on our Site may not be related to or controlled by us. When you visit a page with content embedded from, for example, Twitter or Facebook, these service providers may set their own Cookies on your web browser. We do not control the use of these Cookies and cannot access them due to the way that Cookies work, as Cookies can only be accessed by the party which originally set them. You should check the third party websites for more information about these Cookies.

Advertising: We use third parties to help us serve advertising Cookies on our Site. Advertising Cookies help us see whether users who viewed an ad on our Site later visited the advertiser's site. Also, our advertising partners may use a Cookie to determine whether we have shown an ad and how it performed, or provide us with information about how you interact with ads. Please read our advertising partners’ privacy policies to ensure you agree with their privacy practices.

Analytics: we use the Google Analytics web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”) to collect anonymous traffic data relating to our Site to help us analyse how users use it and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The information stored in the cookie is transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States and then used to evaluate visitors' use of our website and to compile statistical reports on website activity for us. For further information on the privacy of Google Analytics data please visit http://www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html. We also use Alexa, which is an Amazon.com company, to measure anonymous traffic data relating to our Site so as to optimize Site performance.

7. How to refuse the use of Cookies

You can change your web browser settings so your computer warns you each time a Cookie is sent, or to turn off all Cookies. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser "help menu" to learn the correct way to modify your Cookies. However, if you disable Cookies you won't have access to many features that may make your browsing of our Site and use of our services smoother, and some of our services may not function properly. For example, if you disable Cookies you will not be able to earn rewards, as Cookies are used to authenticate each user and to ensure rewards are assigned to the correct member account.
