What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small file that can be placed on your device that allows us to recognise and remember you. Cookies are sent to your browser and are stored on your device. When you visit our site, we may collect information from you automatically through cookies or similar technology.
Understanding how you use our site
Showing you Kudo products and services that are relevant to you
Using cookies and other technology allows us to analyse how our site is being used, measure the number of visitors to the site, and display advertising.
Cookies are “first-party cookies” and those that are used by our partners are “third-party cookies”. Because of how cookies work, our website cannot access third-party cookies; nor can other organisations access the data in the cookies we use on our website. There are more details about both in the following sections.
What types of cookies do we use?
We use four types of cookies, which we describe in this section.
Cookies that are essential to provide you with services you have requested. For example, these include cookies that make it possible for you to stay logged into a website. If you set your browser to block these cookies, then these functions and services will not work for you. In particular, we won’t be able to save your preferences about cookies.
Cookies which measure how often you visit our site and how you use them. We use this information to get a better sense of how our visitors use our website, and to improve it based on this. For example, we collect information about which of our pages are most frequently visited, how long they stay on the website, and the type of device they use. No personally identifiable information is stored in performance cookies. If you would like to find out more information, please visit the Digital Advertising Alliance or Your Online Choices.
Cookies that are used to recognise you and remember your preferences or settings when you return to our site, so that we can provide you with a more personalised experience. For example, if you are based in the United Kingdom, we will remember this and make sure that you receive the UK only content and services. A mix of first-party and third-party cookies are used.
Third parties may set and access cookies on your device and may also use web logs, pixel tags, or snippets. These are designed to help deliver advertisements that are relevant to your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advert as well as to help us measure the effectiveness of our 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 the Digital Advertising Alliance or Your Online Choices.
You will find information on how to delete cookies as well as general information about them. You may need to refer to your device manufacturer’s guide for details on how to do this, and you may have to manually adjust some preferences each time you visit a site. Some services and functionality may not work if you choose to limit or block cookies.
