We use cookies on our website, which amongst other things, help us to improve your experience of our website and to ensure that it performs as you expect it to. Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information, which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device by websites that you visit. They can improve your experience of using a website, for example, by remembering your preference settings and tracking your use of a website so that it can be improved to meet your needs. [They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.]

Websites must get consent to send cookies to your computer or mobile device unless the cookies are strictly necessary to provide services to you.

You can set your cookie preferences when you arrive at our website. [Periodically, we will ask you to reconfirm any consents that you have given to use of cookies.]

[NOTE: Conygar/TIQ will need to implement a method on its website for users to be able to choose which cookies they are happy with and to disable any of the non ‘strictly necessary’ cookies which they do not agree with (see below for more advice on ‘strictly necessary’ cookies). Also, Conygar/TIQ will need to consider what type of consent solution it is going to operate on the website. In the UK, the Information Commissioner’s guidance on cookies states that where you are using cookies (or allowing a third party to use cookies on your site) to create detailed profiles of an individual’s browsing activity, such cookies will be deemed to be intrusive in nature. The more privacy intrusive your activity is, the more priority you will need to give to getting active (rather than implied) consent (including providing sufficient detail in your cookie policy telling users about what cookies you use, what they do and why you use them) before cookies are placed. The placement of this consent for cookies in a prominent position will also be important  either to establish implied consent for non-privacy intrusive analytics/statistics cookies or to get consent for more intrusive cookies as soon as possible so that those cookies can be placed. Note that in some European countries, express consent may be required to comply with local laws.]

Unless the cookie is a strictly necessary cookie, you can withdraw your consent to our cookies at any time even if you have previously consented. Although, please do remember that if you do not consent to our functionality cookies, parts of our website will not work.

[NOTE: Will the website have certain functionality dependent on using cookies? For example, some websites have videos that are embedded using a functionality cookie, without which you can’t watch the video.]

[For example, [insert detail, e.g. [you will not be able to watch our videos].] For this reason we will occasionally send you prompts which allow you to consent to a cookie you have previously rejected. ]

The table below explains what cookies we use on our website, why we use them and whether they are strictly necessary or another type of cookie e.g. “functionality” or “performance” cookies. We also state in the table whether a cookie is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. The difference is that:

  • Persistent cookies remain on your device between browsing sessions. They are activated each time you visit the website that created that particular cookie. For example, where a “persistent cookie” is used on a website to remember your log-in details, you will not need to enter those details each time you visit that website.
  • Session cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when you open the browser window and finishes when you close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.

Some of the cookies listed below are those set by our own website when you visit – https://www.cleaverandwake.com/. However, we also have cookies on our website that are set by third parties – not Cleaver & Wake. Please see the table below for more details.

Strictly necessary

Strictly necessary cookies are essential to enable you to receive a service on a website. For example, cookies to operate online shopping baskets, do your internet banking or to comply with the law (e.g. such as to keep your information safe). We would not be able to operate our website without using the “strictly necessary” cookies listed below.

[NOTE: As mentioned above, ‘strictly necessary’ cookies are only those ones without which [Company] would be unable to operate its website/provide its services. Note that even though consent is not required for placing ‘strictly necessary’ cookies, you still need to tell users if you are using such cookies and what they do. Below are some examples of ‘strictly necessary’ cookies that we have come across and also some examples given in the Information Commissioner’s guidance:

  • cookies which track the organisation’s server capacity and accordingly distribute website traffic to the free servers.
  • cookies used to remember items placed in online shopping baskets.
  • cookies which remember whether users have given their consent to the cookies on the website or not (in addition to security cookies, these cookies are also an example of ones used to comply with the law).
  • remembering previous actions (e.g. entered text) when navigating back to a page in the same session.
  • managing and passing security tokens to different services within a website to identify the visitor’s status (e.g. logged in or not).
  • to maintain tokens for the implementation of secure areas of the website.
  • to route customers to specific versions/applications of a service, such as might be used during a technical migration.

Cookies used for the following will not be deemed ‘strictly necessary’:

  • to gather information that could be used for marketing to the user.
  • to remember customer preferences or user ID’s outside a single session (unless the user has requested this function).
  • to gather website statistics (i.e. google analytics, which although is useful for improving the website, is not a ‘strictly necessary’ cookie.]

Functionality cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your log in details) and customised preference settings (e.g. text size). They also enable enhanced, more personal features, e.g. a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by using a cookie to remember which region you are in. These cookies are also used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video. Information collected by “functionality” cookies may or may not be anonymised, but they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites. The “functionality” cookies on our website [only] collect anonymous information.
