Tractivity Cookie Policy

Last updated 1 May 2020

This Cookie Policy explains how we use cookies and similar technologies to recognise you when you visit this website. It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them.

In some cases, we may use cookies to collect personal information, or data that becomes personal information if we combine it with other information.

What are cookies and similar technologies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.

Cookies set by the website owner are called "first party cookies". Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called "third party cookies". Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third-party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

Functions usually performed by a cookie can also be achieved by other similar technologies, such as tracking pixels. Tracking pixels are code snippets included within a website that allow website owners to track user behaviour and conversions.

From now on, this Cookie Policy uses the terms 'cookies' or 'cookie' to refer to both cookies and similar technologies such as tracking pixels.

Why do we use cookies?

Like many organisations, we use first- and third-party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Websites to operate, and we refer to these as "essential" or "strictly necessary" cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Online Properties. Third parties serve cookies through our Websites for advertising, analytics and other purposes. This is described in more detail at the bottom of this page.

How can I control cookies?

You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject non-essential cookies. You can exercise your cookie rights by setting your preferences in the Cookie Preferences Popup (where applicable). The Cookie Preferences Popup allows you to select which categories of cookies you accept or reject. Essential cookies cannot be rejected as they are strictly necessary to provide you with services.

The Cookie Preferences Popup is shown to you the first time that you access our website and via a link in the footer thereafter. If you choose to reject cookies, you may still use our website though your access to some functionality and areas of our website may be restricted. You may also set or amend your web browser controls to accept or refuse cookies. As the means by which you can refuse cookies through your web browser controls vary from browser-to-browser, you should visit your browser's help menu for more information.

In addition, most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit or

How often will you update this Cookie Policy?

We may update this Cookie Policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. Please therefore re-visit this Cookie Policy if you wish to stay informed about our use of cookies and related technologies.

The date at the top of this Cookie Policy indicates when it was last updated.
