3. What are cookies and how do they work?
Cookies are small bits of text that are downloaded to the devices you use to access Our App and its content. Your browser makes these cookies available every time you visit Our App or Our website again, so Your browser can recognise you and can then tailor what you see on your device to enhance Your experience.
Cookies are an important part of the internet including mobile applications. They make using devices and accessing online information much smoother and affect lots of the useful features of websites. There are many different uses for cookies, but they fall into the following groups.
Essential Cookies – needed to provide the content, product or service you have asked for. Some cookies are essential to help your devices download or stream the information, or so you can move around apps and websites and use their features. Without these cookies, content, products or services You’ve asked for cannot be provided, for example positioning information on a smartphone screen, tablet device or other screen so that you can see a website or app’s functionality, “session cookies” which make it possible to navigate through a website or app smoothly, keeping You logged in during your visit; without cookies You might have to log in on every website you visit every time.
Improving your browsing experience – Cookies allow the app or website to remember choices You make, such as your language or region and they provide improved features. They can remember your preferences and settings, including marketing preferences, such as choosing whether you wish to receive marketing information or not, if You’ve filled in a survey, so you’re not asked to do it again or if You’ve been to the application or website before.
Analytics – We may keep track of what information and links are popular and which ones don’t get used so much, to help us keep our information relevant and up to date. It’s also very useful to be able to identify trends of how people navigate our information and when and where ‘error messages’ may originate. ‘Analytics cookies’ are used to gather this information. The information collected is grouped with the information from everyone else’s cookies. We can then see the overall patterns of usage rather than any one person’s activity. Analytics cookies are used to improve how an application, a website and its pages work.
Our App, web locations, websites and communications You get from us may contain small invisible images known as ‘web beacons’ or ‘ pixels’. These are used to manage the interaction between You and the online information or email and allows us to assess the effectiveness of the communication.
Affiliate cookies – We may also use ‘affiliate’ cookies i.e. promotional links to other companies’ sites. If You follow one of these links and then register with or buy something from that other site, a cookie is used to tell the other site that You came from one of our sites. That other site may then pay us a small amount for the successful referral. For more information, see the Internet Advertising Bureau’s guide about how affiliate marketing works.
We try and only show advertising and marketing that is relevant to your interests. We may sell space on Our App or website to advertisers. The resulting adverts often contain cookies and related ad technology that is placed by third party partners such as ad servers, ad agencies, ad network providers and research firms. These partners use the browsing information collected from these cookies to restrict the number of times you see the same ad (frequency capping) and help show other advertisements that are relevant to You while you’re accessing our information. This information about your browsing activity may be grouped with information about what is being accessed by other users, into interest groups, and then used to show You advertisements based on those interests. This is often called online behavioural advertising (OBA). OBA is a way of using information about your web-browsing activity, collected by using cookies, to group You with other users into interest groups and show you advertisements based on those interests.
5. Cookies explained
We do not sell personal data collected from cookies to any other organisations. If You want to know about data collected by third parties when you click on their adverts, you should check their privacy notice to find out what they collect, how they process it and what they use it for. It’s easy to choose not to receive behavioural advertising and manage Your cookies if You want to.
6. Controlling my cookies
Virtually all modern browsers allow you to see what cookies You’ve got, and to clear them individually or clear all of them. To find out how to do this, go to aboutcookies.org, which contains comprehensive information on how to do this on a wide variety of desktop browsers. In addition to the controls available on Your computer, there are other ways of choosing not to receive Online Behavioural Advertising and other tracking cookies. Please note that most of these choices work by setting a cookie that overrides the behavioural advertising cookie. If you clear all your cookies, You will also clear these opt-out cookies, therefore changing your preferences. In this instance You would need to choose again.
7. How long does Glo Up keep your information?
We only retain your information for as long as you continue to use Our App and/or you have unsubscribed from any of Our Services or as required by law. We keep in place measures to keep Your information safe and secure, and to ensure we share it only with Your consent. When deciding what information to retain, we take into account what information We need to best provide you with our services, manage Your relationship with Us and meet Our statutory obligations.
