What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites function, to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
Cookies set by the operator of a website (in this case, Simon Wynn Consulting) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than Simon Wynn Consulting are called “third-party cookies”. Third-Party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the Site (for example advertising, interactive content, interaction with social media sites, and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer or mobile device both when you visit our Site, and also when you visit certain other websites.
We use first-party and third-party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Site to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users and to enhance the experience of our Service. Third parties serve cookies through our Site for advertising, analytics and other purposes.
The specific types of first and third-party cookies served through our Site and the purposes they perform are described below:
Essential website cookies
These cookies are strictly necessary for our Site to operate. Essential cookies allow you to use our Site and provide essential functionality and security features. We serve these cookies directly, and they are described as follows:
Performance and functionality cookies
These cookies are used to enhance the performance of our Websites and our Services but are not essential. However, if you disable these cookies, certain functionality may not be available to you. These cookies and the parties that provide them are described below:
Analytics and marketing cookies
These cookies collect information that helps us understand how the Websites and Services are being used by our customers, how effective our marketing campaigns are, and to generate new marketing leads and insights. The Site currently doesn’t use any analytics or marketing cookies.
Use of Local Storage
Cookies are not the only way we can store information on your computer or mobile device. We store additional information that is essential to the functionality of the Site in local storage. Local storage is similar to storing information in cookies, but the information never expires until our Site deletes it, or you delete it yourself. Please refer to the instructions specific to the type of browser you are using, or the specific mobile phone operating system you are using for instructions on how to delete local storage.
The following categories of information are stored in local storage when using our Site:
Cached information used to improve the performance of the Site
Information used to remember if you have accepted the cookie banner notice
Other tracking technologies
Cookies are not the only way to track visitors to a website. Simon Wynn Consulting and our third-party partners may use other similar technologies such as clear GIFs (also known as “tracking pixels” and “web beacons”). Clear GIFs are small graphics files that contain an identifier that recognizes when a user visits our Websites. This allows our third-party partners to monitor traffic patterns between websites, communicate with cookies, to understand if you have come from an advertisement displayed on a third-party Website, to monitor the success of marketing campaigns and to improve site performance. These technologies typically rely on cookies to function, so disabling cookies in your browser will impair their functionality. Simon Wynn Consulting is currently not using tracking pixels or web beacons on the Site.
