This Cookies Policy relates to our website at www.gps-ldn.com, our mobile applications and any of our other online or mobile products, content and services (collectively, the “Service”).
Cookies are widely used to allow online and mobile sites to function efficiently. A “cookie” is a small text file that (depending on your browser settings) is deposited on your computer, mobile phone, tablet or other smart device when you visit a site. The cookie may be sent back to that site when you visit again, and may then be used by the server to identify and track your use of the site.
Cookies last for various durations. A “session cookie” is a temporary cookie that only remains in the cookie file of your browser until you leave a site. A “persistent” cookie is a long-term cookie that will be stored by your browser until its set expiry date (unless you delete it before the expiry date).
There are four widely recognised categories of cookie by function:
— Essential cookies. These are necessary for the operation of a site (or part of a site), e.g. enabling a user to log into secure areas of a site.
— Functional cookies. These recognise you when you return to a site, allowing content to be personalised and preferences to be set.
— Analytical cookies. These monitor site performance and analyse site traffic, gathering anonymous data.
— Targeting cookies. These record your browsing history (such as visits to sites, pages visited and links followed) and use that information to make content and/or advertising displayed on a site more relevant to your interests. That process is often called “online behavioural advertising” (or “OBA” for short).
In this Cookies Policy, where the context allows, references to “cookies” include any tools that collect information from your device about your browsing activity.
In general, we use certain types of cookie:
— to identify you as you use the Service (functional cookies);
— where relevant, to help us authenticate you as a subscriber and to give you access to your user profile (functional cookies);
— to customise and personalise your experience of the Service (functional cookies); and
— to compile anonymous statistics about the use of the Service (analytical cookies).
These cookies do not contain any information that, in itself, personally identifies you and do not provide us with access to the rest of your device. We may, however, associate the information contained in cookies with personal information that you have provided to us separately.
[RICHARD PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE USING ANY WORDPRESS COOKIES]
We may introduce further types of cookie and/or similar technology from time to time to improve your experience of the Service. If we do so, we shall update the list above to note any further main cookies and/or similar technology used on the Service.
If you require any further information on the cookies that we use, you can contact us as described in the How to contact us section below.
Please note that Google may also transfer Google-held information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. We understand that Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.
Rejecting and deleting cookies
To learn how to reject or delete cookies, we recommend that you consult the “Help” function of your internet browser or, for a mobile phone, your handset manual. Further information on rejection and deletion of cookies is provided on www.aboutcookies.org. For further information on managing behavioural advertising, please visit www.youronlinechoices.com/uk.
If, however, you decide to disable or delete any cookies, some parts or features of the Service (especially interactive features) may not work properly. For some parts of the Service, we may require you to uninstall or cease using the relevant applications, rather than have a poor experience from disabling cookies. Disabling or deleting cookies may also affect your ability to use other online or mobile sites.
How to contact us
We may at any time update or otherwise modify this Cookies Policy. We will notify you of any changes to our Cookies Policy by posting the modified Cookies Policy on the Service. By then continuing to use the Service, you will be bound by the modified Cookies Policy.
