This Cookies Policy is for our website socialsummaryreport.com which is owned and operated by Content Discovered Ltd. The Policy governs the privacy of its users who choose to access it.
Any reference to “we” or “us” in this Cookies Policy shall mean Content Discovered Ltd. Throughout this Policy “you” means the customer.
We believe you deserve the utmost respect when it comes to the security and use of your personal information, so we have described how we look after your information as clearly as possible.
The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 implemented a European Directive (Directive 2002/58/EC) which is concerned with the protection of privacy in the electronic communications sector. In 2009 this Directive was amended by Directive 2009/136/EC. This included a change to Article 5(3) of the E-Privacy Directive requiring consent for storage or access to information stored on a subscriber or users’ terminal equipment; in other words, a requirement to obtain consent for cookies and similar technologies.
Governments in Europe had until 25 May 2011 to implement these changes into their own law. The UK introduced the amendments on 25 May 2011 through The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) (Amendment) Regulations 2011.
Terminology and Definitions
Cookies can expire at the end of a browser session (from when a user opens the browser window to when they exit the browser) or they can be stored for longer. The Regulations apply to both types of cookies:
- Session Cookies – allow websites to link your actions during a browser session. They may be used for a variety of purposes such as remembering what pages you have accessed during access to our website. These session cookies expire after a browser session so we would not store them for a longer term. For this reason, session cookies may sometimes be considered less intrusive than persistent cookies.
- Persistent Cookies – are stored on your device in between browser sessions which allows your preferences or actions to be remembered. Persistent cookies may be used for a variety of purposes including remembering your preferences and choices when using our site or to target advertising.
This website and its owners take a proactive approach to user privacy and ensure the necessary steps are taken to protect the privacy of its users throughout their visiting experience. This website complies with all UK legislation and requirements for user privacy.
What is a Cookie?
A cookie is a small text file that is downloaded onto your device (e.g. a computer or smartphone) when you access our website. It allows our website to recognise your device and store some information about your preferences or past actions. Many websites do this in order to track online traffic flows. Similar technologies are also often used within emails to understand whether the email has been read or if any links have been clicked. If you continue without changing your settings, we’ll assume that you are happy to receive all cookies on the Content Discovered website. However, you can change your cookie settings at any time.
Type of Cookies We Use
We use ‘session cookies’ to optimise and enhance our website. Session cookies enable our website to keep track of visitor’s movement from page to page so visitors are not asked for the same information already given to the site. These cookies allow visitors to proceed through many pages of a site quickly and easily without having to authenticate or reprocess each new page the visitor visits.
You are advised that if you wish to deny the use and saving of cookies from this website on to your device you should take necessary steps within your web browsers security settings to block all cookies from this website and its external serving vendors.
Cookies are set on the user’s device upon launch of our website.
The Regulations require that you provide consent which is defined as:
‘any freely given specific and informed indication of his wishes by which the data subject signifies his agreement to personal data relating to him being processed’.
Based on the above definition, we require a user to provide their permission for their information to be processed.
Consent must involve some form of communication where the individual knowingly indicates their acceptance. This may involve clicking an icon, sending an email or subscribing to a service. The crucial consideration is that the individual must fully understand that by the action in question they will be giving consent.
