How Aspectus PR uses Cookies

Like most websites, we use cookies and similar tools to help improve the performance of our website and enhance your user experience – either for the duration of your visit or for repeat visits.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are downloaded to your computer, tablet, or mobile phone when you first visit a website or page.

Cookies can serve many functions, such as helping a website to remember your username and preferences, assess how well the website is performing, or recommend relevant content.

Certain cookies contain personal information. For example, if you click ‘remember me’ when logging in, a cookie stores your username. However, most cookies do not collect information that identifies you. Rather, cookies collect more general information such as how you arrived at a website and how you browse it.

We use cookies to help us:

  • Ensure our website works as you’d expect and provide the optimum user experience
  • Continuously improve the speed and security of our website
  • Allow you to share pages with social networks like Facebook
  • Make our marketing more efficient, ultimately helping us to provide you with a more targeted service

We do not use cookies to:

  • Collect any personally identifiable information without your express permission
  • Collect any sensitive information without your express permission
  • Pass data to third parties such as advertising networks

What sort of cookies does Aspectus PR use?

We use two types of cookies – website function cookies and third-party cookies set by other websites who run content on the page you are viewing.

What are website function cookies?

Website function cookies make our website work, such as allowing you to add comments to our site. There is no way to prevent these cookies being set other than to not use our website.

Which third-party cookies does Aspectus PR use?

Our site includes functionality provided by third parties. A common example is where a YouTube or Vimeo video has been embedded. Our site also includes the following third-party functions that use cookies:

  • Social media sharing buttons – these allow you to easily ‘Like’ or share our content on other sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Privacy implications vary according to each social network and are dependent on the privacy settings you have chosen on these networks.
  • Analytics – these cookies are set by analytics tools and enable us to compile visitor statistics on an anonymous basis. We use Google Analytics, a free service offered by Google (see Google Analytics Privacy Policy).
