COOKIES

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer, tablet or mobile phone (device) from a website’s computer and is stored on your device as a tiny text file.

Every website can send cookies to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, and (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access and use the cookies that your online preferences have allowed to be stored on your device, via your browser settings.

Cookies fall into two main categories, first party cookies and third party cookies:

  • First party cookies are related directly to the website domain being viewed e.g. cookies set by Wunderman while you visit wunderman.co.uk.
  • Third party cookies are associated with content contained in the website being viewed, but which originate from a different website domain. For instance, advertiser cookies are often set in a 3rd party context.

The time that a cookie will stay on your device will depend on whether it is a persistent or a session cookie.

  • Session cookies are cookies with a lifespan that extends to only a browser session. After the browser is closed, all session cookies expire and the values stored in them are lost.
  • Persistent cookies are cookies with a fixed expiration date. The data stored in the cookie will be retained by the browser until the expiration date is reached. They are activated each time the user visits the relevant website.

Many websites (including wunderman.co.uk) use both types of cookie when a user visits in order to track online ‘traffic’.

Cookies can record information about your online preferences, allow a website to be tailored to your interests and to track what a user views or buys. Users have the opportunity to set their device browsers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time.

The last of these settings means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of a website’s features.

During the course of any visit to a website, the pages you see, along with any cookies, are downloaded to your device. Many websites do this, because cookies enable website publishers to do useful things like find out whether the device (and probably its user) has visited the website before. This is done on a repeat visit by checking the cookie left there on the last visit.

You can disable cookies at any time by managing cookies in your browser’s settings (see the below section).

We’re giving you this information to comply with applicable legislation, and to make sure we’re transparent about your privacy when using our website.

If you’d like to learn more about cookies in general, visit www.allaboutcookies.org
(Please note that we aren’t responsible for the content of third party websites).

How does Wunderman.co.uk use cookies?

When you first visit Wunderman.co.uk, we will notify you that the website uses cookies. By navigating away from the page you land on and continuing to use the website, we will take this as your acceptance of the use of cookies. Alternatively, you can disable cookies by using your device’s browser settings as described below – but please note that by doing this, some of the functionality of the website may be disabled.

We use both first party and third party cookies on our website.

  • First party cookies can allow us to analyse the profile of our visitors and help us to provide you with a better user experience. For example: if on a previous visit you went to our ‘Our Work’ page, we might find this out from your cookies and choose to highlight further information about this on your subsequent visits.
  • Third party cookies are used, for example, to make our sharing buttons work e.g. to tweet via twitter.com. We don’t use intrusive cookies, for example to serve up third party adverts.

Please note that our cookies can’t harm your computer, and we don’t store personally identifiable information in them, such as email address.

Here’s a list of the type of cookies we use, and what we use them for. Please note that due to technology reasons, it is difficult to provide a full list of cookies that may be placed on your device by visiting our website, but please do not hesitate to contact us should you require any further information. This list may also be amended from time to time:
