Last Updated: 25th March 2024

This Cookie Notice explains how Growth Engineering and its affiliates (collectively “Growth Engineering”, “we”, “us”, and “ours”), use cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you visit our platform, including without limitation https://www.growthengineering.co.uk/ and any related URLs, mobile or localised versions and related domains/subdomains (“Websites”). 

It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as the choices for how to control them.

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer or another internet-connected device in order to identify your browser, provide analytics, and remember information about you such as your language preference or login information. They are completely safe and can’t be used to run programmes or deliver viruses to your device.

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

  • To facilitate the operation and functionality of our platform;
  • To improve your experience of our platform and make navigating around them quicker and easier;
  • To allow us to make a bespoke user experience for you and for us to understand what is useful or of interest to you;
  • To analyse how our platform is used and how best we can customise it;
  • To identify future prospects and personalise marketing and sales interactions with them;
  • To facilitate the tailoring of online advertising to your interests.

Cookies can either be session cookies or persistent cookies. A session cookie expires automatically when you close your browser. A persistent cookie will remain until it expires, or you delete your cookies. Expiration dates are set in the cookies themselves; some may expire after a few minutes while others may expire after multiple years.

Cookies placed by the website you’re visiting are called “first party cookies”. Some cookies that have been set on our platform are not set on a first-party basis by Growth Engineering Technologies Ltd. The platform can be embedded with content from third parties to serve advertising. These third-party service providers may set their own cookies on your web browser. Third-party service providers control many of the performance and functionality, advertising, marketing and analytics cookies described above. We do not control the use of these third-party cookies as cookies can only be accessed by the third party that originally set them.

We use the following types of cookies in our platform:

Essential Cookies: We use essential cookies to make our platform work. These cookies are strictly necessary to enable core functionality such as security, network management, cookie preferences and accessibility. Without them, you wouldn’t be able to use basic services. You may disable these by changing your browser settings, but this may affect how our platforms function.

Remarketing Services: We utilise remarketing services. Remarketing, or retargeting, in digital marketing refers to the practice of displaying ads across the internet to individuals who have previously visited your website. This enables your company to appear as if it’s “tracking” individuals across the internet by displaying ads on the websites and platforms they frequently use.

Third-Party Services: We may display, include, or provide access to third-party content, such as data, information, applications, and other products or services, or offer links to third-party websites or services (collectively referred to as “Third-Party Services”).

You acknowledge and agree that we bear no responsibility for any aspect of Third-Party Services, including their accuracy, completeness, timeliness, validity, copyright compliance, legality, decency, quality, or any other attribute. We do not assume liability or responsibility towards you or any other individual or entity for Third-Party Services.

Third-Party Services and the links thereto are furnished solely for your convenience. You access and utilise them entirely at your own risk and are subject to the terms and conditions established by those third parties.

Facebook Pixel: Facebook Pixel is an analytics tool designed to measure the effectiveness of your advertising efforts by tracking user actions on your website. It helps ensure your ads reach the appropriate audience. Facebook Pixel may collect information from your device during its usage. Information collected by Facebook Pixel is handled in accordance with its Privacy Policy.

Cookies consent mechanism: You can use our cookies consent banner to accept or reject cookies which you will find when you visit our website. 

Browser setting: Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their ‘settings’ preferences. However, if you limit the ability of websites to set cookies, you may worsen your overall user experience, since it will no longer be personalised to you. It may also stop you from saving customised settings like login information.

Browser manufacturers provide help pages relating to cookie management in their products. Please see below for more information.

Wherever you’re located you may also set your browser to block cookies and similar technologies, but this action may block our essential cookies and prevent our website from functioning properly, and you may not be able to fully utilise all of its features and services. You should also be aware that you may also lose some saved information (e.g. saved login details, site preferences) if you block cookies on your browser. 

Different browsers make different controls available to you. Disabling a cookie or category of cookie does not delete the cookie from your browser. You will need to do this yourself from within your browser. You should visit your browser’s help menu for more information.

We may change our Service and policies, and we may need to make changes to this Cookie Notice so that it accurately reflects our Service and policies. Unless otherwise required by law, we will notify you (for example, through our Service) before we make changes to this Cookie Notice and give you an opportunity to review them before they go into effect. Then, if you continue to use the Service, you will be bound by the updated Cookie Notice. If you do not want to agree to this or any updated Cookie Notice, you can delete your account.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions regarding our Cookie Policy.
