1.1 What are cookies?
1.1.1 A cookie is a piece of information that is stored on your computer’s hard drive through your browser, to recognise your browser and which records how you have used a website. This means that when you go back to that website, it can give you tailored options based on the information it has stored about your last visit. You can normally alter the settings of your browser to prevent it from accepting cookies.
1.2.2 There are different kinds of cookies with different functions:
1.2.3 Session cookies: these are only stored on your computer during your web session. They are automatically deleted when the browser is closed. They usually store an anonymous session ID allowing you to browse a website without having to log in to each page. They do not collect any information from your computer.
1.2.4 Persistent cookies: a persistent cookie is one stored as a file on your computer, and it remains there when you close your web browser. The cookie can be read by the website that created it when you visit that website again. We use persistent cookies for web analytics purposes.
1.3 The cookies we use are explained below:
1.3.1 Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, services you have asked for, such as obtaining a quote or logging into your account, cannot be provided. These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you have been on the internet.
Expires: End of session
These cookies are added by the Zeus Web Server to ensure that user sessions are persistent. This is an anonymous cookie.
1.3.2 Performance cookies
These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. We do not use any performance cookies on this Site; however, third parties might use such cookies through this Site. Please refer to Section 1.3.6 below for more information on how third parties use this Site.
1.3.3 Functionality cookies
These cookies allow websites to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced features. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, font and other parts of web pages that you can customise. We do not use any functionality cookies on this Site; however, third parties might use such cookies through this Site. Please refer to Section 1.3.6 below for more information on how third parties use this Site.
1.3.4 Targeting cookies
(a) These cookies collect several pieces of information about your browsing habits. They are usually placed by advertising networks rather than website operators. They remember that you have visited a website and share this information with other organisations such as advertisers. They do this in order to provide you with targeted adverts more relevant to you and your interests. Quite often they will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation. Although the cookies can track your visits around the web they do not usually know who you are. Without these cookies, online advertisements you encounter will be less relevant to you and your interests.
(i) Cookies placed by advertising networks to collect browsing habits in order to target relevant adverts to you. The site you are visiting need not actually be serving adverts, but often this will also be the case.
(ii) Cookies placed by advertising networks to complement services used by website operators to increase functionality, for example, commenting on a blog, adding a site to your social network, providing maps or counters of visitors to a site.
(c) We do not use any targeting cookies on this Site; however, third parties might use such cookies through this Site. Please refer to Section 1.3.6 below for more information on how third parties use this Site.
1.3.5 Google Analytics
1.3.6 Third Party cookies
1.4 How to reject cookies
If you don’t wish to receive cookies that are not strictly necessary to perform basic features of our site you can set your browser to reject cookies or to tell you when a website tries to put a cookie on your computer.
Note that most web browsers will accept cookies, but if you would rather that we did not collect data in this way you can choose to accept all or some or reject cookies in your browser’s privacy settings. Rejecting all cookies means that certain features cannot then be provided to you and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all our Site’s features. The "Help" menu in the bar of most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie and how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-ons settings or visiting the website of its manufacturer.
