Valpak's use of Cookies

Valpak’s websites and online services (‘Platform’) may use “cookies.”

This policy outlines the cookies which may be set when visiting our Platform, alongside the purposes of use for these cookies.  The Platform is owned and operated by Valpak Limited (‘we’, ‘our’, ‘us’ as applicable).  For further detailed information about this Platform, please click here to see our Terms of Use and our Privacy Policy

By continuing to use this Platform, you are agreeing to our use of cookies in the manner described in this policy.

What is a Cookie?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website.  They are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device. You can find more information about cookies at: www.allaboutcookies.org and www.youronlinechoices.eu for a video about cookies visit www.google.co.uk/goodtoknow/data-on-the-web/cookies

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improve the user experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.

Because cookies are used throughout our Platform, disabling them may prevent you from using certain parts of the sites. If however, you wish to restrict or block the cookies which are set by this Platform (or, indeed, on any other site) you can do this through your browser settings. The ‘Help’ function within your browser should tell you how. If you are primarily concerned about third party cookies generated by advertisers, you can turn these off by going to the Your Online Choices site at http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices.

The cookies used on our Platform have been categorised based on the cookie guidelines produced by the ICC UK. We use the following categories:

Category 1: Strictly Necessary

These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website.

Category 2: Performance Cookies

These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All the information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works.

Category 3: Functionality Cookies

These cookies may be used to provide services such as our Live chat function. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

Category 4: Targeting Cookies or advertising Cookies

Valpak uses GatorLeads a tool that identifies the business or organisation that website visitors belong to, based on a reverse IP Lookup. GatorLeads also uses cookies to process this identification, and personal information about individual users is stored. Cookies used by GatorLeads store information about your current web browsing session (pages viewed, time on site etc.) and the dates and times of previous website visits. This information is used by Valpak to profile website visitors, in order to better understand the way in which our website content is viewed by different segments. It is also used to identify the types of organisations that might be interested in attending our Best Practice Seminar Series.
