Issue 1 - Original Notice - Dean Kahl - 18-05-2018



3. What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that a website may put on your computer, tablet, mobile or other internet enabled viewing device, when you first visit a site or page. The cookie will essentially help the website to recognise you when you next visit. There are other technology files which can do the same thing, but for the purpose of this policy, we will refer to them as cookies.


Cookies serve many functions. Typically, they may be used to remember your username and preferences (so the next time you login you don’t have to enter your login details), analyse how well the website is performing and also enable the site to recommend content that may be of interest to you based on previous browsing.


Some cookies contain personal data, such as when you let the website remember your login details; the cookie will store your username.


Most cookies won’t collect information that identifies you. They generally collect general data such as how you have got to our website (such as through a search engine or via another website) or your location.

4. What cookies does the website use?

4.1 Performance/Analytics Cookies

These cookies are essential for the operation of our website. They will be used to enhance the performance of the site and ensure you receive a seamless service. They could include, for example, cookies that enable you to login to our SEC World client area or submit online forms.


4.2 Performance/Analytics Cookies

We use cookies to analyse how our visitors use our website and monitor website performance. This includes Google Analytics and Search Console.


Using these cookies allows us to provide an excellent browsing experience on the website by identifying and fixing any issues.


For example, we will use Performance/Analytics Cookies to track how visitors are navigating through the site, and identifying where we may require additional internal linking to make it easier, or make improvements to our menu structure.


4.3 Marketing Cookies

We use various third party tools within the website. These are identified in our Website Privacy Notice.


These tools are used for various reasons. But some are used to recognise when you return to the site, to remember you have done so, and perhaps offer content which you haven’t seen before. They also enable us to track what pages you visit which we hope indicates your interest and therefore enables us to send personalised and legitimate direct marketing messages.


Examples of the third party tools we use within the website include:


  • Google Analytics & Search Console
  • Zendesk Chat
  • Hotjar
