Managing your preferences
Before we dive into the details – if you are just looking to manage your preferences on our Service relating to cookies and similar technologies (including opting-out), you can do so at any time through our Cookie Preference Center.
If you do not accept our cookies, you may experience some inconvenience in your use of our Service. If you want to find out more about cookies and similar technologies on our Service and in our emails, please keep reading.
What types of technologies does SPMB use?
We may use any or all of the following “technologies” on our Service and in our emails:
A cookie is a very small text file that may be placed on your browser or in the storage on your device. There are two types: “session cookies” and “persistent cookies”. Session cookies are cookies that disappear from your device or browser when you close your browser. Persistent cookies stay on your device even after you close your browser.
Please note that both SPMB and third-party service providers may set cookies on our Service – these ‘third-party cookies’ are set by domains other than those we control and may recognize your device across different websites.
A pixel tag is a single pixel, transparent GIF image with a unique identifier that can recognise certain types of data on your device. They are used to operate and improve the Service and our email practices, including to help deliver cookies, count visits and understand usage and email campaign effectiveness.
For example, we may put pixel tags in our emails to understand how you interact with that email – for example, whether you opened the email, whether you forwarded it, whether you clicked on a link in the email that directed you to our Service etc., – these pixels may collect the time, location and operating system of the device you use to read the email.
Other similar technologies
We may also use other tracking technologies, HTML5 local storage / local shared objects (which store relevant data locally on your device), for similar purposes as described in this Cookie Notice.
So, when we refer to cookies and “similar technologies” in this Cookie Notice, such reference includes reference to the pixel tags discussed above, HTML5 local storage / local shared objects and other equivalent tracking technologies.
- Essential cookies: these cookies are essential in order to enable our Service to provide the function you have requested, such as by helping to ensure that the content of a page loads quickly and effectively.
- Functional cookies: these cookies allow us to provide enhanced personalisation and functionality, such as tailoring content to you, remembering your choices and preferences on the Service (e.g. language, text size, etc.) or remembering search parameters.
- Analytics cookies: these cookies collect information on how users interact with our Service and enable us to improve how it operates.
- Advertising cookies: these cookies collect information about your browsing habits in order to provide advertising which is more relevant to you and your interests – for example, they remember the websites you have visited and share that information with other parties such as advertising technology service providers.
A full list of the cookies we use can be found in the section titled: Details of Cookies and Similar Technologies.
How can you manage your consent?
You can control or limit how cookies and similar technologies are used by taking the following steps:
- Managing your preferences on our Service (including by opting-out) at any time by using our Cookie Preference Center.
- Pixel tags in emails can typically be blocked by default if you configure your preferences in your email client to block external images or set it to show “plain text only” emails.
- Managing your browser or device settings to clear or decline cookies (for instance, by using a “private” or “incognito” mode). If you disable cookies, however, some of the features of our services may not function properly.
