1. WHAT ARE COOKIES, WEB BEACONS AND SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES? · A cookie is a unique alphanumeric identifier that may be placed on your computer (or other internet enabled devices, such as tablet or mobile phone) when you’re online. The unique alphanumeric identifier acts like a label, helping to distinguish you from other website users. Cookies, therefore, provide useful information about your browsing actions and patterns. o First party cookies: These cookies are set by the Nicman Sites and read by Nicman. You can find more information about these cookies in section 2, below. o Third party cookies: These cookies are set by the Nicman Sites and read by a third party. You can find more information about these cookies in section 4 below. o Session / temporary: These cookies are stored only while you’re connected to a particular website - they expire at the end of your browser session or are deleted from your device when you leave the website. o Permanent / persistent: These cookies are not deleted from your device when you leave the website. They remain on your device until they expire. Cookies do not contain software programs and cannot install anything (such as a virus) on a computer. · A web beacon, also known as a web bug, is a small graphic (usually 1 pixel x 1 pixel), that is embedded in a web page, web advertisement or email, but is invisible to you. It operates as a tag that records your visit to a particular web page. · A server log, (the log file generated by, for instance, Nicman’s web server) provides information on how and when web pages and applications are being accessed. The log file details who accesses a graphic or specific web page and when.
