What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data files used to store information on your web browsers. Cookies are used to store and receive identifiers and other information on computers, phones and other devices. Other technologies, including data that we store on your web browser or device, identifiers associated with your device and other software, are used for similar purposes. In this policy, we refer to all of these technologies as "cookies". Mobile devices and browsers can be shared by a number of people, so cookies are not always wholly related to an individual.

We use the following major types of cookies:

1. Analytics and research

We use cookies to better understand how people use the Funerals Page Products so that we can improve them. They help us to make the website work as efficiently as possible and provide better content and services in the future. We may also use analytics cookies to measure the effectiveness of advertising on the website elsewhere on the internet.

For example: Cookies can help us understand how people use the Funerals Page services, analyse which parts of the Funerals Page Products people find most useful, interesting and engaging, and identify features to be improved.

2. Strictly necessary

The data collected in this category is essential to provide our services to you. The data is necessary for the website to operate, to verify your identity and to maintain your security and privacy while using the website. It enables you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas. This category is always on, as without this data, the services you’ve asked for can’t be provided. Although it is possible to disable cookies on websites via the browser settings, this would affect the functionality of the website, causing it not to work.

3. Authentication

We use cookies to verify your account and determine when you're logged in so that we can make it easier for you to access the Funerals Page and show you the relevant user experience and features.

For example: We use cookies to keep you logged in as you navigate between the pages of Funerals Page website. Cookies also help us remember your browser so you don't have to keep logging in to Funerals page and so you can more easily log in to Funerals Page via third-party apps and websites.

4. Advertising Cookies

We use cookies to help us show adverts and to make recommendations for businesses and other organisations to users who may be interested in the products, services or causes they promote. Our website is predominately free to use, and in exchange we sell our advertising space to allow us to create high quality content and bring you the services you value. Cookies are a vital part of that exchange.

For example: Cookies allow us to help advertise to people who have previously visited a business's website, to recommend products and services based on that activity. Cookies also allow us to limit the number of times you see an advert so you don’t see the same advert over and over again. These cookies may gather information about your browsing activity on our website across visits. They allow us and advertisers to show more relevant ads and allow advertisers to manage how many times a device sees an advert. They might also allow the advertiser to tailor advertising to you when you visit our website. Advertising Cookies are usually stored until you delete them or they expire based on the time period set in each cookie, which is normally around 30 days.

Any third party advertisers are required to follow the applicable laws. However, Funerals page Limited does not have control over the third party organisations that place cookies, who each have their own cookie and privacy policies.

Opting out of Advertising cookies, will not opt out of seeing adverts! You will still see plenty of adverts but they just may not be as relevant to you and your interests. See ‘Managing your cookie preferences’ below for more information.

In addition to cookies, there are similar technologies that may be used by the website. These include:

Web beacons: Web beacons are invisible when you open a web page and are used to understand browsing activity. They are tiny graphics with unique identifiers.

Social widgets: Social widgets may collect browsing data, which may be received by the third party that provided the widget, and are controlled by the third parties. These are buttons or icons provided by third-party social media providers to allow interaction with those social media services when viewing a web page or a mobile app screen.

UTM codes: These are strings that can appear in a web address when a user moves from one web page or website to another. The string can represent information about browsing, such as which advertisement or publisher sent the user to the receiving website.

Managing your cookie preferences

Switching off cookies may affect the way the website operates and can adversely affect the quality of your experience on the website. However, most web browsers will allow you to turn off cookies. You should look at your web browsers Settings or Help menu to find out how this is done.
