Cookie Policy

Divicio.us site uses “cookies”. Here you can find out more about cookies and how to control them.

If you visit our website, we will deploy cookies to provide an online service more suited to the device you connect from, as well as to prevent and detect fraud, to help keep you secure. When you visit our website from any device (e.g. mobile device or PC), we collect information about your use of this site, such as information about the device or browser you use to access the site (including device type, operating system, screen resolution, etc.), the way you interact with this site, and the IP address your device connects from.

In many instances, our website is reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair its functioning, e.g. you may not be able to initiate or complete some activities within our website unless these cookies are installed.

What are ‘cookies’?

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your machine to help the site provide a better user experience. In general, cookies are used to retain user preferences, store information for things like shopping carts, and provide anonymised tracking data to third party applications like Google Analytics.

As a rule, cookies will make your browsing experience better. However, you may prefer to disable cookies on this site and on others. The most effective way to do this is to disable cookies in your browser. We suggest consulting the Help section of your browser or taking a look at the About Cookies website which offers guidance for all modern browsers.

Types of cookies deployed

There are different types of cookies which are usually split into the following categories, but note that not all these types will be used on every website you visit and some cookies fit into multiple categories:

‘strictly necessary’ / required cookies

These cookies are essential in order to enable you to navigate through the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, services you have asked for, like shopping carts or online payments, cannot be provided. These cookies are activated when you visit our website and remain active for the duration of your visit.

So, basically, these cookies enable services you have specifically asked to use.

‘performance’ cookies

These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website. For instance, which pages visitors go to most often and if they get error messages from web pages. This data in aggregate form is used to improve our website and also used to identify whether customers may have specific interests needs based on pages they have visited within our website.

So, basically, these cookies collect information on the website pages you visited and help us provide you with a better service.

‘functionality’ cookies

These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

So, basically, these cookies remember choices you make to improve your user experience.

‘targeting’ cookies

These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation.

So, basically, these cookies collect information about your browsing habits in order to make advertising relevant to you and your interests.

‘compliance’ cookies 

These cookies are required for us to be able to meet our legal and regulatory requirements, for example, anti-money laundering and fraud prevention. They also prevent your account from being misused by others. These cookies are activated when you visit our website and remain active for the duration of your visit.

Third party cookies

These cookies are added to our website by a third party such as YouTube, where there is embedded third-party content. We have absolutely no control over these cookies. If you would like to find out more about the types of cookies which may be downloaded as a result, please visit the website of the third-party provider to do so.

Some of these cookies such as from Google, collect information on the pages you visit within our website. The information collected helps us understand our visitors/customers better.
