For example, sending you emails about things we think might interest you, or to ask you what you think about our services.

  12. How does Colebridge use cookies and similar tracking?
    a. What are cookies and tracking technologies?
    Cookies are bits of data which are stored in your computer or mobile when you visit a website or app.
    b. Why do we use cookies and other tracking?
    To do a few different things:
    • to remember information about you, so you don’t have to give it to us again. And again. And again
    • to keep you signed in, even on different devices
    • to help us understand how people are using our services, so we can make them better
    • to help us personalise Colebridge web sites and applications to you by remembering your preferences and settings. To remember your progress, so you can pause and pick up where you left off, even on a different device
    • to find out if our emails have been read and if you find them useful
    A few things on our websites wouldn’t work without some cookies. Tech people call these “strictly necessary cookies”. They’re always on when you visit us.
    Bear in mind there are some other cookies out there from other companies. These “third-party cookies” might track how you use different websites, including ours. For example, you might get a social media company’s cookie when you see the option to share something. You can turn them off, but not through us.
    c. How long do cookies last?
    Some are erased when you close the browser on your website or app. Others stay longer, sometimes forever, and are saved onto your device so they’re there when you come back.
    d. How do I control my cookies and tracking?
    When you first visit us, we’ll tell you about our cookies and ask you to agree if we can use them.
    Stopping all cookies might mean you can’t access some Colebridge services, or that some of them might not work properly for you.
    Another way to control some tracking is in the settings on your device.
  13. How will I find out about changes to this policy?
    We update this policy sometimes. If we make important changes, like how we use your personal information, we’ll let you know. It might be a notice, an email, or a message in your app.
    If you don’t agree to the changes, then you can always stop using our services, delete your account and stop giving us any more personal information. We’d be sorry to see you go.
