Use of Cookies

A cookie is a small text file which is placed onto your device when you access our or any of our affiliated websites. SOTI uses cookies and other online tracking devices such as, but not limited to, web beacons, action tags, Local Shared Objects (‘Flash cookies’), and single-pixel gifs on this and affiliated websites to:

  • recognise you whenever you visit this or any affiliated website;
  • obtain information about your preferences, online movements and use of the internet for a more personalised experience;
  • carry out research and statistical analysis to help improve SOTI content, products and associated services and to help us better understand the needs and interests of our customers;
  • target our marketing and advertising campaigns more effectively by providing interest-based advertisements that are personalised to your interests targeted against non-personally identifiable attributes or aggregate data collected by SOTI; and
  • make your online experience more efficient and enjoyable.

The information SOTI collects from our use of cookies will not usually contain your personal data. Although we may obtain information about your device such as your IP address, your browser and/or other internet log information, this will not usually identify you personally.  In certain circumstances we may collect personal information about you—but only where you voluntarily provide it (e.g. by completing an online form or where you purchase goods or services from us).

In most cases we will need your consent in order to use cookies on this website. The exception is where the cookie is essential in order for us to provide you with a service you have requested.

If you visit our website when your browser is set to accept cookies, we obtain your consent to SOTI’s information collection technologies by providing you with transparent information in our Privacy Notice and providing you with the opportunity to make your choice. If you change your mind in the future about letting us use cookies, you can withdraw your consent by modifying the settings of your browser to reject cookies or disable cookies completely. Each browser you use will need to be set separately and different browsers offer different functionality and options in this regard.

Third-Party Cookies

We work with third party suppliers who may also set cookies on our website, for example Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube which we use to display video content. These third party suppliers are responsible for the cookies they set on our site. If you want further information please go to the website for the relevant third party.
