Just like the majority of other websites that you use, we use cookies to monitor the performance of our site and to make improvements. 

 

What are cookies?

 

Cookies are small pieces of data that are downloaded onto your device when you visit a website. This data is simply stored as a plain text file. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit. This helps websites to recognise you again the next time you visit the site.

 

Cookies have a lot of different jobs, including but not limited to; letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and overall to improve the user experience for you on that particular website. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests. This is just a generic description of cookies to help you understand how they work. To read which cookies Infomentum uses, read further.

Our site may place and access certain first party cookies on your computer or device. First party cookies are those placed directly by us and are used only by us.

Removing cookies through your browser

 

You can delete all of your cookies, including ours, at any time by visiting your browser settings and deleting cookies. This doesn’t stop us from collecting new cookies – it just means that next time you visit our website, we won’t recognise you. Your browser should also give you the option to disable all cookies – refer to your browser settings to find out.

 

Opting out

 

Alternatively, we give you the option to opt out of our website sending cookies to your device. But, in order to comply with your choice, we’ll need to use one tiny cookie to ensure that you aren’t asked to make this choice again. In essence, we must use a cookie to ensure that all other cookies ignored.
