Hubwoo Cookie Policy

What are cookies and how do we use them?

This policy is split into four sections:

1. What are cookies and tracking technologies?
2. The cookies and tracking technologies we use now and how to delete them
3. Our classification of cookies
4. Our main technology partners

1. What are cookies and tracking technologies?

Where we talk about cookies on our site (www.Hubwoo.com), we mean cookies, flash cookies and web beacons.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a text file containing a small amount of data which is downloaded to your computer when you visit one of our site or see one of our adverts elsewhere on the internet. The vast majority of websites use cookies and tracking technologies. Cookies are useful because they help us arrange the content and layout of our site and recognise those computers that have been to our site before. They allow us to remember your preference settings and play an important role in helping us to enhance the usability and performance of our site and your experience using them. Some cookies are also essential to enable you to move around our site and use any Hubwoo service.

What is a Flash cookie?

This is a type of cookie which is collected via Adobe Flash media player – a piece of software which you probably have on your computer to help you watch online videos and listen to podcasts.

What is a web beacon?

Web beacons are usually tiny transparent images that help website owners track the activity of users on certain web pages. They can also send the website owner (for example, us) information in cookies such as whether an email with a web beacon in it has been opened. We use web beacons together with cookies to help us understand how you interact with our site and the emails we send you; to help us improve your browsing experience; to ensure that content is relevant to you; and to better manage our site and email content.

2. The cookies and tracking technologies we use now and how to delete them

When you access our site you will receive a message advising you that we have placed some cookies on your computer. This was necessary in order to display the site page to you. If you continue to use our site, further cookies will be placed on your computer to maximise your experience on our site and to help us understand how we can improve them.

If you don’t want us to place cookies on your computer then there are a number of ways you can opt out – setting your browser either to reject all cookies, to only allow “trusted” sites to set them, or to accept only those cookies from those websites which you are currently on.

Please remember – if you do delete all your cookies, some features of our Services, such as remembering your login details, will not work and your experience on our site and/or Services may be affected.

3. Our classification of cookies

We have reviewed all the cookies we use and have divided them into four categories:

  • Strictly Necessary
  • Performance
  • Functionality
  • Advertising or tracking

Strictly Necessary

These cookies are essential to enable you to move you around the site and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the site. Without these cookies, our site and/or Services will not work properly.

Performance

These cookies collect information about how you use our site, for instance, which pages you go to most often and if you get error messages from those pages. We only use these cookies to improve how our websites work.

Functionality

These cookies allow us to remember the choices you make (such as your user name) and provide enhanced, more personal features. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of our web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have requested such as watching a video or commenting on a blog.

Advertising or Tracking Cookies

We do not accept advertising cookies or tracking cookies from any other organisation on our site. We do however advertise our own products and services on our websites and you may see adverts for us elsewhere on the internet. The cookies we use to present you with adverts may be based on the content you visit the most on our websites, so we can let you know about what we think you will be interested in. The cookies show us where you saw the advert; help us measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns; and limit the number of times you see an advert.

4. Miscellaneous

The English version of this Cookie Policy shall govern in the event of any conflict or substantive translation changes into another language.
