Cookie Policy

COOKIES

State Bidco (We) are committed to delivering the best possible service to you and we wish to maintain the confidence that you place in us. This cookie policy explains what cookies are and how we use them on our websites. 

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your computer hard drive by a web page server. You will normally see a message on the site before we store a cookie on your computer. 

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise the pages on our site, or register on our site for any services we provide, a cookie helps us to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. When you return to our site the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the features that you previously customised.

Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. 

Types of Cookies:

Session cookies: Last only for the duration of your visit and are deleted when you close your browser.

Persistent cookies: Last after you have closed your browser and allow a website to remember your actions and preferences. Sometimes persistent cookies are used by websites to provide targeted advertising based upon the browsing history of the device.

First and third party cookies: Whether a cookie is a first or third party cookie depends on which website the cookie comes from. First party cookies are those set by or on behalf of the website visited. All other cookies are third party cookies. We use both first party and third party cookies

Strictly necessary cookies: These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features. These cookies don’t gather information about you for the purposes of marketing.

Performance cookies: These cookies collect information about how visitors use a web site, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don't collect information that identifies a visitor although they may collect the IP address of the device used to access the site. All information these cookies collect is anonymous and is only used to improve how a website works, the user experience and to optimise our advertising. By using our websites, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device, however you can block these cookies using your browser settings.

Functionality cookies: These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your username). The information these cookies collect is anonymised (i.e. it does not contain your name, address etc.) and they do not track your browsing activity across another website.

Targeting cookies: These cookies collect several pieces of information about your browsing habits. They are usually placed by advertising networks. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as media publishers. These organisations do this in order to provide you with targeted adverts more relevant to you and your interests. This type of advertising is called online behavioural advertising and place an icon in the top right hand corner of an advert. This icon when clicked, will take you through to the website Your Online Choices where there is more help and guidance for you to Opt-out of this type of advertising. You can block these cookies using your browser settings.

How do we use cookies?

We use different types of cookies for different things, such as:

  • Analysing how users use our website
  • Giving you a better, more personalised experience
  • Recognising when you have signed in

How can I choose what cookies I want activated?

You have the option to choose what cookies you want to access. On the cookie banner please click on the Cookie Settings button and you can choose whether or not to activate cookies or not. However, be aware that this may affect the performance of the website.

This is one of the four main cookies set by the Google Analytics service which enables website owners to track visitor behaviour and measure site performance. It is not used in most sites but is set to enable interoperability with the older version of Google Analytics code known as Urchin. In this older version this was used in combination with the __utmb cookie to identify new sessions/visits for returning visitors. When used by Google Analytics this is always a Session cookie which is destroyed when the user closes their browser. Where it is seen as a Persistent cookie it is therefore likely to be a different technology setting the cookie.
