COOKIE POLICY

This Cookie Policy explains how Novus Accountancy Ltd uses cookies and similar technologies to recognise you when you visit this website (www.novusaccountancy.co.uk).  It explains what these technologies are and why we use them as well as your rights to control our use of them.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website.  Cookies are widely used by website owners to make their websites work more efficiently as well as to provide reporting information.

Cookies set by the website owner are called "first party cookies".  Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called "third party cookies".  Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (such as advertising, interactive content and analytics).  The parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer both when its visits the website and also when it visits other websites.

Why do we use cookies?

We use first and third party cookies for several reasons.  Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our website to operate, and we refer to these as "essential" cookies.  Other cookies enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our website.  Third parties serve cookies through our website for advertising, analytics and other purposes described in more detail below.

The specific types of first and third party cookies served through our website and the purposes they perform are described below.

How can I control cookies?

You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies.  you can exercise your cookie rights by setting your preferences in the Advanced Cookie Settings located in the notification banner on our website.  These settings allow you to select which categories of cookies you can accept or reject.  Essential cookies cannot be rejected as they are strictly necessary to provide you with services.  If you choose to reject cookies, you may still use our website though your access to some functionality and areas of our website may be restricted.  You may also set or amend your web browser controls to accept or refuse cookies.  As the means by which you can refuse cookies through your web browser controls vary from browser to browser, you should visit your browser's help menu for more information.

Cookies used

The specific types of first and third party cookies served through our website and the purposes they perform are described below:

Essential cookies

These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with services available through our website and use some of its features such as access to secure areas.

 

Marketing cookies

These cookies are used to make advertising messages more relevant to you.  They perform functions like preventing the same ad from continuously reappearing, ensuring that ads are properly displayed for advertisers, and in some cases selecting advertisements that are based on your interests.

Functionality cookies

These cookies are used to enhance the performance and functionality of our website but are non-essential to their use.  

Analytics cookies

These cookies collect information that is used in aggregate form to help us understand how our website is being used or how effective our marketing campaigns are, or to help us customise our website for you.

In addition to our own cookies, we may also use various third party cookies to report usage statistics of the website.  These cookies may be used when you share information using a social media networking website such as Facebook, Instagram or Google+.

Other technologies

Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track visitors to a website.  We may use other, similar technologies from time to time like web beacons (sometimes called tracking pixels).  These are tiny graphic files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has visited our website or opened an email including them.  This allows us to monitor traffic patterns of users from one page within a website to another, to improve site performance, to understand whether you have come to this website from another, and to measure the success of email marketing campaigns.  In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

Log files

These files log visitors when they visit websites.  The information collected by log files is not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.  The purpose of this information is for analysing trends, administering the site, tracking users' movement on the website and gathering demographic information.
