Cookies

“Cookies” are small text files stored by the browser (e.g. internet Explorer or Safari) on your computer or mobile phone. They can then be used to provide you with tailored information. In accordance with data protection laws and regulations, we may only use cookies if you have provided us with your consent for us to do so. For this reason, when you first connect to our Site, a banner appears in order to inform you of the deposit of cookies if you continue to use the Site or if you click on the button “I Accept”. If you do not click on this button, if you do not continue to use the Site or if you do not choose to accept the deposit of cookies by clicking on the button “More Information” or “change cookie settings”, then no cookies will be deposited. By making your Subcard® application online or placing an online order you will be providing us with your consent. Where consent is provided, cookies may be used to better personalise the content that you and other users will see.

Referrers

A “referrer” is the information passed along by a web browser that references the Web URL you linked from, and it is automatically gathered by our web server. This information is used by us to identify broad demographic trends that may be used to provide information tailored to your interests.

IP address data

IP addresses are automatically gathered by our web server. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer so that data (such as the web pages you request) can be sent to you. You will not be personally identified from this information. Your IP address may also be used to assist in the detection of fraud and we may pass this information to the Police. Environment variables we gather include time, type of web browser being used, the operating system/platform, and CPU speed. This information is used by us only to monitor broad demographic trends and may be used to provide information tailored to your interests.

 

What type of cookies do we use?

By using this Site or if you click on “I Accept” on the Site, you consent to the use and storage of cookies on your device. However, you can deactivate cookies, as explained below. If you choose to browse in this Site without the use of cookies, it may limit the service we are able to provide to you via the Site.

  1. This Site uses Session Cookies. Session Cookies allow the Site to link your actions during a browser session.  They enable the Site to keep track of your movement from page to page, so you are not asked for the same information that has already been provided on a previous page. This Site uses Session Cookies to store technical information, such as your transaction history and customer information such as your Subcard® number, email address and postcode during a browser session. Cookies therefore allow this Site to remember that you are logged in and to remember the information you provide on each page as you navigate around the Site. Session Cookies expire after a browser session – they are not stored for any longer.
  2. This Site uses Persistent Cookies to store language preferences. These kinds of cookies are stored in your device in between browser sessions which allows your preferences or actions across the Site to be remembered. Persistent Cookies may be used for a variety of purposes including remembering your preferences and choices when using this Site, or for targeting advertising.
