Different Kinds of cookies

There are different kinds of cookies. Some cookies make it easier for you to navigate on a website or make it easier to remember things, for example usernames, passwords or (language) preferences. Other cookies register website usage to optimize your browsing experience. The data is collected via unique cookies laid down within your web browser.

The cookies used by our websites have been categorized to help you better manage them while using our websites:

Strictly Necessary Cookies

‘Strictly Necessary Cookies’ are necessary for the website to function properly and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms .

You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but then some parts of the website will not work.

With the “Strictly Necessary Cookies” we do not collect any personal data. However, for the other types of cookies, there is personal data collection and processing, which only happens after we have acquired your explicit, informed and freely given consent.

Performance Cookies

‘Performance Cookies’ allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our website. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the website. Third-party cookies are included in this category.

An example of a functional cookie is one that stores session-based information on ‘Live-chat’, a third-party application which allows the visitor to talk directly with a member of the Unit4 team and keep this conversation private. If you do not allow these cookies, then some or all of these services may not function properly.

Targeting Cookies

Tracking cookies from our advertisers
Some tracking cookies are placed by third parties who display advertisements to you via our website. They use these cookies, with your permission, to keep track of which pages you visit from their network, in order to build a profile of your online surfing behavior. This profile is also built up on the basis of comparable information that they receive from your visit to other websites in their network. This profile is not linked to your name, address, e-mail address and the like as known to us, but only serves to match advertisements to your profile so that they are as relevant as possible to you.

To learn more about this behavioral advertising practice, you can visit www.networkadvertising.org. You can delete or permanently block these cookies via your browser settings.

These cookies are also used by Unit4 to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant advertisements on Unit4.
