Cookies in use on this site

Like most websites, Idox plc and all its group companies (the “Idox Group”) collects certain information automatically when you visit our websites, read our emails, or interact with us. We typically collect this information through a variety of tracking technologies, including cookies, beacons, and similar technology (which we’ll refer to collectively as ‘cookies’).

Throughout this Cookie Policy we'll refer to our corporate website and any other Idox Group brand websites or subdomains and country-level domain variants that link to this Cookie Policy collectively as our “Site”.

This statement explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them.

If you would like to know what cookies are, or how to control or delete them, please visit: www.allaboutcookies.org for detailed guidance.

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 website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device. You can find more information about cookies at: www.allaboutcookies.org and www.youronlinechoices.com.

Why do we use cookies?

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience.

We also use cookies to collect information about the way you use the website, for example: the site from which you came, the pages you visit, the links you click, how frequently you access the website, whether you open emails or click the links contained in emails, whether you access the website from multiple devices, etc. We also gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies including clear gifs to help us monitor and improve our emails.

There are different types of cookies and they all work in the same way. The list below describes the cookies we use on our site and why.

What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?

Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called ‘tracking pixels’ or ‘clear gifs’).  

Web beacons are tiny graphic files that contain a unique identifier that enables us to track the activity of anonymous and known prospects to our website, landing pages and web forms.

It helps us to monitor the traffic patterns of visitors from one page within our sites to another, to understand whether you have come to our sites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns.

Web Beacons used:

  • /acton/bn/tracker
  • ?vyemail=
