Phorest Privacy Notice

Information about our use of cookies

This Cookie Policy should be read in conjunction with our Privacy Policy.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on the browser on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website and use its functions, or use an app. Cookies are widely used by online service providers to facilitate and help to make the interaction with users faster and easier (by helping us to distinguish between you and other users and enabling us to retrieve things like your settings and preferences), as well as to provide reporting information and facilitate online advertising.

Cookies set by Phorest on this Website are called “first party cookies”. Cookies on the Website set by parties other than Phorest are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. interactive content and analytics).

Why do we use cookies

We use first party and/or third party cookies on our Website for various purposes such as:

  • to improve your experience of our website/s and make navigating them quicker and easier
  • to allow us to create a bespoke user experience for you and for us to understand what is useful or of interest to you
  • to analyse how our website is used and how best we can customise them
  • to know that you have seen important information so we don’t show it to you again if it’s your preference

We use the following types of cookies:

Required cookies are essential for you to browse the website and use its features. These cookies help us to know if you have already seen content that we don’t want to show you anymore and to keep some of your preferences for further visits (e.g. the cookies banner) without storing any personal information from you.

Preferences cookies, also known as functionality cookies, allow a website to remember choices you have made in the past or what content you have signed up to see so you don’t have to give us your details again.

Statistics cookies, also known as performance cookies, collect information about how you use a website, like which pages you visited and which links you clicked on. None of this information can be used to identify you. It is all aggregated and, therefore, anonymized. Their sole purpose is to improve website functions.

Please note that third parties may also use cookies, over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies.

Updates to this Cookies Policy

We may update this Cookie Policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. Please therefore re-visit this Cookie Policy regularly to stay informed about our use of cookies and related technologies.
