What are cookies?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating web domain on your subsequent visits to that domain. Most web pages contain elements from multiple web domains, so when you visit the Website your browser may receive cookies from several sources.

Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device. Cookies allow you to navigate between pages efficiently, remember preferences and generally improve the user experience. They can also be used to tailor advertising to your interests through tracking your browsing across websites.

Session cookies are deleted automatically when you close your browser and persistent cookies remain on your device after the browser is closed (for example to remember your user preferences when you return to a website).

What types of cookies does CEDEX use?

We describe below the categories of cookies that are set by Cedex, its affiliates and its partners when you visit the Website.

Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the Website and use its features. Without these cookies, services you have asked for (such as navigating between pages, using a shopping cart or e-billing services) cannot be provided.

Performance Cookies

We make use of analytic cookies to analyse how our visitors use the Website and to monitor the Website’s 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. The information collected by these cookies is not associated with your personal information by us or by our contractors.

Website Functionality Cookies

Local Shared Objects (“Flash cookies”)

In addition to the above cookies, we use Local Shared Objects, also referred to as “Flash cookies,” on the Website. These are used to enhance your user experience, for example, by storing your user preferences and settings. Local Shared Objects are similar to browser cookies, but can store more complex data than simple text. By themselves, they cannot do anything to, or with, the data on your computer. Like other cookies, they can only access personally identifiable information that you have provided on the Website, and cannot be accessed by other websites.

HTML email web beacons

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 within the email. We may use this information for purposes including determining which of our emails are more interesting to you and to query whether users who do not open our emails wish to continue receiving them. 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. Some of the pages on the Website may also contain web beacons and allow us to count visitors who have viewed our pages. They allow us to develop statistical information about the activities and features that most interest our consumers for the purpose of providing more personalised content. In general, they are not used to access personally identifiable information without your consent.

Use of IP addresses and web logs

We may also use your IP address and browser type to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer the Website and to improve the service we offer to you. An IP address is a numeric code that identifies your computer on the internet. Your IP address might also be used to gather broad demographic information.

We may perform IP lookups to determine which domain you are coming from (e.g. google.com) to more accurately gauge our users’ demographics.
