Cookies and your Privacy
What cookies do and how we use them
www.d5200.org is an affiliate website. We earn commission when visitors click through on any of the advertisements on the site and buy from our suppliers. Cookies are used in order to track traffic from our site to the sites of our advertisers. This means that if you visit our site and click on an advertisement, your computer will download one of our cookies.
There are three kinds of cookie:
Files that allow a site to link the actions of a visitor during a single browser session. These might be used by an internet bank or webmail service. They are not stored long term and are considered “less privacy intrusive” than persistent cookies.
These remain on the user’s device between sessions and allow one or several sites to remember details about the visitor. They may be used by marketers to target advertising or to avoid the user having to provide a password each visit.
First and third-party cookies
A cookie is classed as being first-party if it is set by the site being visited. It might be used to study how people navigate a site.
It is classed as third-party if it is issued by a different server to that of the domain being visited. It could be used to trigger a banner advert based on the visitor’s viewing habits.
We use two kinds of cookies:
1) For tracking our affiliate clicks and sales – third party cookies
2) For our Google analytics program – first party cookies
A cookie is set when a user clicks on a publisher link and is redirected to the advertiser’s website. The purpose of the cookie is to store information related to the click including a timestamp and an identifier that is unique to each publisher.
The cookie is necessary because the information it stores, such as click through time, publisher identifier, IP address will be combined with information captured at the point of sale to ascertain whether a valid transaction has been driven by a publisher.
A standard text cookie is set on the user’s machine. It will remain in place for a pre-defined period of time, which is determined by the advertiser. Information stored on a consumer’s machine is according to the set cookie period for that particular programme (e.g. industry standard being 30 days).
Important points to Remember
A cookie does not enable anyone to create a profile of an individual’s browsing activity.
Our cookies do not save information about a user’s previous activity on the site.
It is generally accepted within the industry that affiliate tracking is low-risk in terms of intrusiveness as it does not capture data about a user’s browsing behaviour.
No information is passed to a third party.
There is an option in your browser to delete the cookies saved on your machine.
