What cookies solidcode.eu uses and why
The cookies we use on this website fall into two groups: functional cookies and analytical cookies. The cookies are activated at the start of your visit of the site or when you visit a specific section of the site. Some cookies will be automatically removed when you close the browser (session cookies). Some remain for a longer period.
It is also possible that other parties place cookies on your device via our website. This is the case when you click on buttons or links that connect you to the other parties’ website such as youtube, google+ and other social media or websites. When you click on these buttons or links, the other parties will be responsible for the information collected through their website’s cookies.
Functional cookies relate to the functionality of our websites and allow us to improve the service we offer to you through our website. None of the functional cookies contain personally identifiable information.
We use various different technologies on our site to help provide meaningful information about the way that users use our site. These involve providing us with details about how users navigate through our site, how often they make return visits and which parts of the site are the most popular. We use this information to help tailor and improve our content to the user, as well as making the user experience throughout the site as pleasurable as possible.
Our analytical cookies are only for this purpose, and whilst we use third-party software to report this information, it is available only for our use and we will never share this information with any other party or advertising agency. The third-party will only share this information where required to do so by law, or if another party processes the information on their behalf. This information will never be shared for advertising purposes.
The analytical cookies are anonymous and do not store personally identifiable information about users. They only track your visits within this site, not across multiple sites.
What sort of cookies do our third party email service provider use?
Generally, our cookies perform up to four different functions:
- Essential cookies
Some cookies are essential for the operation of our website. For example, some cookies allow us to identify subscribers and ensure they can access the subscription only pages. If a subscriber opts to disable these cookies, the user will not be able to access all of the content that a subscription entitles them to.
- Performance Cookies
We utilise other cookies to analyse how our visitors use our websites and to monitor website performance.
This allows us to provide a high quality experience by customising our offering and quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise.
For example, we might use performance cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages.
We might also use these cookies to highlight articles or site services that we think will be of interest to you based on your usage of the website.
- Functionality Cookies
We use functionality cookies to allow us to remember your preferences. For example, cookies save you the trouble of typing in a username every time you access the site, and recall your customisation preferences, such as which regional edition of the website you want to see when you log in.
We also use functionality cookies to provide you with enhanced services such as allowing you to watch a video online or comment on a blog.
We also use or allow third parties to serve cookies that fall into the four categories above. For example, like many companies, we use Google Analytics to help us monitor our website traffic. We may also use third party cookies to help us with market research, revenue tracking, improving site functionality and monitoring compliance with our terms and conditions.
Can a website user block cookies?
As we’ve explained above, cookies help you to get the most out of our websites.
However, if you do wish to disable our cookies then please follow the instructions here http://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/
Please remember that if you do choose to disable cookies, you may find that certain sections of our website do not work properly
Do we track whether users open our emails?
Our emails may contain a single, campaign-unique “web beacon pixel” to tell us whether our emails are opened and verify any clicks through to links or advertisements within the email.
We may use this information for purposes including determining which of our emails are more interesting to users, to query whether users who do not open our emails wish to continue receiving them and to inform our advertisers in aggregate how many users have clicked on their advertisements.
The pixel will be deleted when you delete the email. If you do not wish the pixel to be downloaded to your device, you should select to receive emails from us in plain text rather than HTML.
