  4. COOKIE CATEGORIES

    The type of cookies used on websites (or other mobile platform software applications) can be put into 1 of 4 categories, based on the International Chamber of Commerce guide to cookie categories.
    1. Strictly Necessary Cookies: These cookies are essential, as they enable You to move around a website or other software application and use its features, such as accessing secure areas. Without these cookies, the Asap Services You have asked for (such as access to secure areas) cannot be provided. These cookies don't gather information about You that could be used for marketing or remembering where You have been on the internet. These cannot be restricted or blocked.
    2. Performance Cookies: These cookies collect information about how You use a website or other software application, for example which pages You go to most often and if You get any error messages from certain pages. These cookies do not gather information that identifies You. All information these cookies collect is anonymous and is only used to improve how a website or other software application works. These cookies are not used to target You with online advertising. Without these cookies we cannot learn how our Site are performing and make relevant improvements that could better Your browsing experience. These can be restricted or blocked.
    3. Functionality & Profile Cookies: These cookies allow a website or other software application to remember choices You make (such as Your user name, language or the region You are in) and tailor the website or other software application to provide enhanced features and content for You. For instance, they remember Your login details and allow You to watch videos. They also ensure the onsite marketing and experience is relevant to You. These cookies can also be used to remember changes You have made to text size, font and other parts of pages that You can customise. The information these cookies collect may be anonymous and they cannot track Your browsing activity on other websites (or other mobile platform software applications). Without these cookies, a website cannot remember choices You have previously made or personalise Your browsing experience. These can be restricted or blocked.
    4. Targeting Cookies: These cookies gather information about Your browsing habits. They remember that You have visited a website and share this information with other organisations such as advertisers. They do this in order to provide You with adverts that are more relevant to You and Your interests. Although these cookies can track Your visits to other websites (or other mobile platform software applications), they do not usually know who You are.
