How Hill and Friends Ltd uses cookies

 

When you use and access the Service, we may place a number of cookies files in your web browser. We use both session and persistent cookies on the Service and we use the following types of cookies to run the Service:

 

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of the Service. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log in to secure areas of our website, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services.
  • Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you and  remember information that changes the way the Service behaves or looks, such as your language preference on the Service.
  • Accounts-related cookies. We may use accounts-related cookies to authenticate users and prevent fraudulent use of user accounts.
  • Analytics cookies. We may use analytics cookies to track information on how the Service is used so that we can make improvements. We may also use analytics cookies to test new advertisements, pages, features or new functionality of the Service to see how our users react to them.

 

 

  • Social sharing cookies. We use cookies to allow you to share content directly on social networking/sharing sites like Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Examples would be if you wanted to 'tweet' about a product advertised on the Services.
  • Targeting and advertising cookies. We use cookies to track your browsing habits on our Services (and also elsewhere on the internet and other apps) so that we can later show you targeted advertisements on other websites (including on social media sites) which we hope are relevant to your interests. We do this by using cookies to collect information about the types of things that interest you, for example websites you visit and your geographic location. For example, if you viewed pages on our Services relating to a particular product, you may later be shown one of our advertisements relating to these or similar products when you are viewing pages on another website (including on social media sites) or app. These types of cookies and the information they collect are also used to limit the number of times you see these advertisements, as well as to help measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns .

 

  • Third party cookies. Please note that third parties (including, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies, over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical cookies or targeting cookies.
