Where the organisation setting the cookie provides an automated disabling tool in respect of its cookie(s) we list below the name of that organisation, the category of cookies it sets together with a link to its automated disabling tool. In all other cases, we list the names of the cookies themselves and their source at the date of this cookies policy so that you can easily identify and disable them if you want through your browser controls.
After your initial visit to the Website the cookies set when you visit the Website may change. This cookies policy will always allow you to know who is placing cookies and for what purpose, and give you the means to disable them, so you should check it from time to time.
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).
We describe below the categories of cookies that are set by TechFinancials, 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) cannot be provided.
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.
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.
