Introduction

This cookie policy is designed to tell you how we, Golding Homes, use cookies and similar technologies on our website.

About Cookies

Cookies are small text files containing identifiers that are sent by web servers to web browsers and are located in browser directories. Each time a browser requests a page from the web server the identifier is sent back to the server.

Cookies are used by web developers to help users navigate their websites efficiently and perform certain functions. Cookies are created not just by the website the user is browsing but also by other websites that run ads, widgets, or other elements on the page being loaded. These cookies regulate how the ads appear or how the widgets and other elements function on the page.

What cookies do we use?

Cookies are categorised into 4 types:

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of Our Website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of Our Website. Without these cookies, services you have asked for cannot be provided.
  • Performance cookies. These cookies collect information about how visitors use Our Website, for example which web page you visit and if you get error messages from web pages. These cookies help us to improve the way Our Website works. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works. Please note that third parties (including, for example, providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may have placed performance cookies on Our Website.
  • Functionality cookies. These cookies allow Our Website to remember choices you make (such as your username, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
  • Tracking cookies. These are cookies that collect information about your browsing habits to make advertising relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaigns. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers.
