Cookies are either:
Session cookies: these are only stored on your computer during your web session and are automatically deleted when you close your browser – they usually store an anonymous session ID allowing you to browse a website without having to log in to each page but they do not collect any information from your computer; or
Persistent cookies: a persistent cookie is 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 Google Analytics and for advertising and targeting.
Cookies can also be categorised as follows:
Essential / First-party cookies
These are issued from the website you have accessed. These cookies often serve to give memory to the website about your data and preferences.
These cookies provide the functionality on our site to allow you to shop. This includes adding products to your bag and allowing us to remember what products you’ve added to your bag. Without these cookies, you will be unable to use the impactcv.co.uk site. These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you have been on the internet.
Performance / Session cookies
These are used during a browser session. They may be used for a variety of purposes such as remembering what you have put in your shopping basket as you browse around our website. These session cookies will expire after a browser session.
These cookies enable us to monitor and improve the performance of our website. For example, they allow us to count visits, identify traffic sources and see which parts of the site are most popular. It is in our legitimate business interests to use these types of cookies but you can restrict these at any time. Without these cookies the site may not perform or look as expected.
Third-party / Advertising / Targeting cookies
These are cookies that are set by a website other than the one you are on. If you visit a website and a separate company sets a cookie through that website this would be a third-party cookie.
These cookies allow us to personalise advertising just for you, serve ads that are related to your interests and shopping history. Without these cookies the site may not perform or look as expected and you may not be targeted with ads that are relevant to your interests. We will ask for your consent to use these cookies.
These cookies allow our website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced features. For instance, we may be able to provide you with news or updates relevant to the services you use. 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. They may also be used to provide services you have requested such as viewing a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect is usually anonymised.
You can manage browser cookies through your browser settings. The 'Help' feature on 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, how to disable cookies, and when cookies will expire. If you disable all cookies on your browser, neither we nor third parties will transfer cookies to your browser. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some features and services may not work.
