Many cookies on our websites perform essential functions and enable you to move around our website and use its features; for example, when you log in to your PowaKaddy account, it remembers the information in your account. We refer to these cookies in this policy as “Necessary Cookies”. These cookies do not gather information about you for the purposes of marketing.
Other cookies are not essential, but they help us understand how our website is used by visitors, so that we can improve our site. We use Web Analytics tools for this. They look at things like how long our websites take to load, how they are used, and what information visitors to our sites look at most. This helps us to improve the way our website work, for example, by ensuring that you find what you are looking for easily. They also help identify any parts of our website that aren’t working as well as they should so we can fix things and make our website better for you and other users. We refer to these cookies as “Analytics Cookies”.
Additional cookies allow our website to recognise you when you return to our websites. This enable us to remember choices that you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. They also help to perform certain functionalities like sharing the content of the website on social media platforms, collect feedback, and other third-party features. We refer to these cookies in this policy as “Functional Cookies”.
“Performance Cookies” are used to understand and analyse the key performance indexes of the website which helps in delivering a better user experience for the visitors.
A further type of cookie lets us know how well our online advertising works, and where we should place our online advertisements. These cookies let us know if one of our advertisements on another website like Google or Yahoo has sent a visitor to our PowaKaddy website.
This type of cookie also helps us reach people who are more interested in PowaKaddy products. So, if you visit our PowaKaddy website you may see our advertisements on other sites. This is known as re-marketing or behavioural advertising and is used to make our advertising more relevant to your interests. We refer to these cookies in this policy as “Advertisement Cookies”.
We also combine information collected from cookies with any records we may have of you as a customer of PowaKaddy. For example, we combine information collected from cookies with personal information you share with us, or information from PowaKaddy products, for the profiling and statistical analysis of product popularity, of your behaviour when you use our PowaKaddy website or of how PowaKaddy products are.
Types of cookies used by PowaKaddy
Cookies fall in two general categories: first-party cookies (which we set) and third-party cookies (which are set by third parties).
These cookies are set by us at PowaKaddy. For the most part, they enable essential functionality on our website. They also include our own Web Analytics cookies, which we use to understand how our website is used by visitors so that we can improve them.
Third-party cookies are not set by PowaKaddy, but by selected third parties with whom we work. Some of these third-party cookies enable useful services, for example online questionnaires or Live Chat (which lets you ask questions of a PowaKaddy expert). Others may be set by advertising networks we work with to keep track of your browsing activities, so that they can place our online advertisements in the most appropriate places. In the section below on “Managing cookies”, we explain how you can change your settings so that third parties (including advertisers) know that you do not want to be tracked.
Social media cookies
Some pages on our website let you share our content through social media sites like LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. Sometimes we may embed videos from sites such as YouTube. These sites set their own cookies, which we don’t control. Those social media sites may have their own cookies policies, which, if available, would normally be contained on their websites. You should carefully review those cookies policies to make sure that you are happy with them.
Cookies falling within the three categories above can be further categorised depending on if they are session cookies or permanent cookies.
These cookies persist even when the browser is closed. They’re used to remember you so that you don’t have to re-enter passwords and login information every time you visit a website.
