What Are Cookies?
Cookies are small text files that contain information and are downloaded to your computer/device when you visit a website. On subsequent visits to the same website, these cookies are sent back to the originating web domain.
These cookies are valuable as they enable a website to recognize your device, facilitating efficient navigation, remembering preferences, and enhancing overall user experience. They can also be used to personalize advertising based on your browsing activities across various websites.
There are two types of cookies:
Session cookies – those which are automatically deleted when you close your browser.
Persistent cookies – those that remain on your device even after you’ve closed the browser, such as to remember your user preferences.
You have the option to disable cookies in your browser, following the instructions provided here. However, please be aware that certain parts of our website may lose functionality if cookies are disabled. We list cookie names and their sources as of the date of this document to make it easier for you.
We utilize analytic cookies to assess how the Newcroft website is used and to monitor its performance. This practice helps us offer a high-quality experience by tailoring our offerings and promptly addressing any issues that may arise. For instance, we may use performance cookies to determine unique visitor counts. Importantly, the information collected by these cookies is not linked to your personal information by us or our contractors.
Website Functionality Cookies
Cookies are employed to provide specific functionality to you. For instance, they may remember your choices (like username, language, or region) and recognize the platform used to access the site. This enhances your experience by providing personalized features. Importantly, these cookies are not used to track your activity on other websites.
Targeting cookies, also known as advertising cookies, gather data about your browsing habits, making advertising more relevant to your interests. These cookies are typically provided by third-party services, like Like or Share buttons. These third parties offer their services in exchange for recognizing your visit to our website. For example, when using “LinkedIn” or “Twitter” share buttons, you may be directed to pages controlled by these companies. These companies may place cookies (including targeting cookies) and are subject to the respective companies’ cookies and privacy policies.
Use of IP Addresses and Web Logs
We may also use your IP address and browser type for:
– diagnosing server issues
– administering Newcroft services, and enhancing their functionality.
An IP address is a numeric code identifying your computer on the internet. It may also be used to collect broad demographic data. We may conduct IP lookups to determine a user’s source domain (e.g., google.com) for better demographic insights. Information from these cookies are not merged with data from any other source and will not personally identify you.
