Cookies – what they are, how they work and why we use them
A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers. It allows a website to remember things like your preferences or to maintain state across various webpages.
They take up virtually no space and are there so that our Sites can tell that you are the same website user as you move from page to page. These files are either stored in the memory of your computer or other device such as mobile phones or tablet devices which you use to access the Sites.
Cookies help us provide you with a better website experience by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not, they also help us to resolve problems if things go wrong and to understand how users use the Sites.
Session or permanent
Cookies can be “session” based (they only last as long as your visit to the Site), or permanent (they remain between your visits to the Sites, so the Sites recognise your device the next time you visit). Our sites use permanent cookies. We can then build up a better and more useful picture of how repeat visitors use our Sites and what they like and dislike.
Specific information we may collect and why
The cookies which CLEC BANGOR drop on your device allow us to collect details of your visits to our Sites including, but not limited to, traffic data, web logs or other communication data and the resources you access. The information you provide to us will be used for processing transactions but may also be used for internal data processing, such as compiling statistical information about your interests and the use of our Sites. As a service to you, we may also use this information to customise the content we offer on the Sites.
We may collect information personal to you about your computer, including your IP address, operating system and browser type when you visit the Sites. Your IP address is used to help identify and gather statistical or demographic information about our customers generally, for example a US based user who may prefer English language content, and to allow for tailored advertising. We also use this information for internal system administration to help diagnose problems with our servers, to administer our website and the customer or user experience.
How is this information used?
CLEC BANGOR will collect, record, store and use the collected information worldwide for clearly specified purposes including but not limited to :
- providing you with information, which we believe would interest you in a way that is targeted and relevant;
- ensuring that our Sites are presented in the most effective manner for you and your computer.
We also want to use our cookies to help us to better tailor the information we provide to you, to try to best suit your preferences. To do so, we may use agents or contractors to help us to serve the cookies and to capture and analyze the information obtained from them on our behalf but where we do so it will be on the basis that these agents/contractors are required to keep the information confidential and secure, and will not use the information for any other purpose than to carry out the services they are performing for CLEC BANGOR. Our cookies do not collect information about what other websites you visit or what you browse there.
Unless you are logged in to your online CLEC BANGOR account when our cookies are dropped, CLEC BANGOR cannot identify which customer is browsing the Site from cookie information. CLEC BANGOR may be able identify a Site user as a specific customer where cookies information contains, or is combined with, other details, for example your IP address and/or email address and/or user account details.
We therefore use our cookies to learn what a browser of our Sites seems to like, from what pages the user visits on our Site, for example looking at homes in a specific region. We can then arrange to serve you relevant ads about our sales items, hopefully tailored to what interests you, such as an addition to our homes in that region.
The ads we think you will like most about our sales items will be displayed when you are visiting third party websites online using the same device you used to browse the Site.
We make arrangements with third party advertising network providers (“AdServers”) to show you these ads when you visit certain websites. To do this, we have to let the AdServers know you are the user we know as user No. 1, so when you visit the third party website they show adverts on, they can show you our ads and the ones we hope are of most interest. We do not share any additional details about you with the AdServers, or the third party website providers, to do this.
In addition, CLEC BANGOR does not arrange for any AdServers, or third party website providers, to drop any additional cookies on their behalf. We track customer use on our Site only. If you choose to visit a third party website, it will have its own privacy and cookies policies, which may be different to ours and may mean other cookies are dropped on your device. We recommend that you read the privacy and cookies policies on such third party websites.
