What are cookies?


A cookie is a piece of information, like a tag, that’s stored on your computer, tablet or phone (“device”) when you visit a website. It can help identify your device whenever you visit that website. They are used by most major websites including Over-C. To make the best use of our website, on whichever device you use, you’ll need to make sure your web browser is set to accept cookies. 

Cookies by themselves can't be used to find out the identity of any user. The information is completely anonymous and doesn't contain any of your personal data.

 

What are cookies used for?

We use cookies and some other data stored on your device to:

  • give you a better online experience
  • allow you to set personal preferences
  • protect your security
  • measure and improve our service
  • work with partners and measure marketing

 

So what information is kept by the cookie?

A cookie will typically hold:

  • the name of the website that it has come from
  • how long the cookie will stay on your device
  • a value – usually a randomly generated unique number
  • How long do cookies stay on my device?

 

How long do cookies stay on my device?

Session cookies – these are usually used to track the pages that you visit so that information can be customised for you for that visit. These only last until you close your browser. They are not stored in your device memory.

Persistent cookies – these may, for example, be used to remember your preferences when you use the site. These are stored in your device memory until you delete them or they reach their expiry date.

You can visit our website without revealing any personal data.

How we use cookies (Over-C Cookie Policy)?

How Over-C uses cookies

Cookies are used for a variety of things that help improve your online experience. They can be used to make our online service easier to use including using cookies that:

  • make login faster by remembering your customer details
  • make the page load quickly by sharing the workload across computers
  • give you access to self-help information
  • make sure our pages are optimised for your browser or device by giving us technical information about the device or browser you are using

Personal preferences

Cookies can help give you content that matches your preferences. We might give you relevant content because we know what other content you liked. They also allow you to customise a page.

Safety and security

Some cookies help make sure your information is secure when using our services while keeping our forms and ordering services easy to use.

Improving our service

To make sure you don't see particular content or announcements too many times we use a cookie to limit their frequency. We also use cookies to measure and analyse how visitors use the site. This helps us develop it and make it easier to use.

First-party cookies

First-party cookies are set by Over-C when you visit our site. Over-C may place first party cookies on your device to track your activity as you move from page to page to identify your preferences.

Third-party cookies

Third-party cookies are set by a website other than the Over-C website, for example when you choose to 'share' Over-C content with people and organisations through LinkedIn, Twitter or other social networks. Over-C works with a number of companies and websites that help make sure our adverts, promotions and marketing messages are displayed to people who might be interested. These companies and partners may use third-party cookies to collect anonymous data such as how many people have viewed a particular page each day. We don't control how they use their cookies, so we suggest you check their website to see how they're using them.

What happens if I don't accept cookies?

If you decline cookies, some aspects of the Over-C site may not work on your device and you may not be able to access areas you want on the website. For this reason we recommend that you accept cookies.

What are Flash cookies and how are they different?

Some websites use Adobe Flash Player to deliver video content and other services. Local Shared Objects – or Flash Cookies as they are usually known – help provide features that let you start looking at a video from where you stopped previously or saving your preferences. They are stored on your device in the same way as other cookies, but you can't manage them with your browser in the same way.

If you want to delete or disable Flash cookies you can find out how on the Adobe website. But if you disable these cookies it may affect the features available to you on Flash-based applications like some video.

Third-party cookies

Why does Over-C allow cookies from other companies on its website?

Some third party cookies help us to:

  • collect statistics about how our website is used so we can improve our website
  • provide specific relevant content for your preferences and interests

We may use some cookies to track where you have come from, for example if you were referred to us by another website by collecting anonymous data. This lets us reward some external websites for referring customers to us.

Cookies by themselves can't be used to find out the identity of any user. The information is completely anonymous and doesn't contain any of your personal data. Unless you choose to tell them, the third party sites will never know who you are even if they assign your browser a cookie.

What happens with social networks?

If you choose to 'share' Over-C content with people and organisations through LinkedIn, Twitter or other social networks you might be sent cookies from these websites. We don't control the setting of these cookies, so please check those websites for more information about their cookies and how to manage them.

If you'd like to learn more about cookies in general and how to manage them, visit aboutcookies.org.
