Novocertus Cookie Notice
What is a Cookie?
A cookie is a small text file stored on your computer or mobile device that contains data related to a website you visit. Cookies have a number of uses. They are used to ensure that a website functions properly as you might expect it to. Cookies also allow websites to ‘remember’ your browsing habits or preferences over a period of time. Cookies may be set by Novocertus as the website operator directly (“first-party cookies”) or in some cases, by another third-party service provider (“third-party cookies”). In the latter scenario, cookies are deployed for social media, advertising or analytics purposes. Novocertus will only be able to directly recognise and read the information contained on first-party cookies.
Other Tracking Technologies
There are other technologies which we deploy which track behaviour on our website. ‘Tracker Pixels’ are a means of allowing us to check whether you have viewed our content. These “pixels” are essentially tiny, invisible images on our web pages that, once loaded, will communicate your interaction with our content. This allows Novocertus and our partners to gauge the validity of material being presented to you.
