We may collect and process the following data about you:
We may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual. For the same reason, we may obtain information about your general internet usage by using a cookie file which is stored on the hard drive of your computer. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive. They help us to improve our site and to deliver a better and more personalised service.
Cookies make websites work better
Cookies are small text files placed on computers by websites or sometimes by emails. They provide useful information, which helps in a variety of ways. They allow efficient use of the site and save users time by not having to re-enter their details each time they visit. They also make sure users receive the most relevant information from Oxford Risk. Cookies help us to analyse how our customers interact with our sites so we can make improvements.
We use three types of cookies on our websites:
Some cookies are essential and some are non-essential.
Cookies that are essential
Certain cookies are necessary in order to use our websites. These are used ‘in-session’ each time you visit and then expire when you leave the site. They’re not stored on your computer and they don’t contain any personal data. However, you can delete them via your browser if you wish to, but this will restrict the functions that you’re able to carry out on our sites. For more information about how to disable cookies in a browser please visit thewww.aboutcookies.org website.
Here’s a list of essential cookies and how Oxford Risk uses them:
These enable you to carry out some essential functions on our sites, such as maintaining log in details for the session or a transaction. They also help by minimising the need to transfer information across the Internet. They are not stored on the users computer and they expire when you terminate your browser session.
These enable Oxford Risk to recognise repeat visitors to the site. By matching an anonymous, randomly generated identifier, we’re able to record specific browsing information such as how you arrive at the site, the pages you view, options you select, and the path you take through the site. By monitoring this information we’re able to make improvements to our sites.
We analyse page use, page interactions and the routes our users take through our sites. We don’t record any personal information provided during an on-site transaction or any other process.
Some cookies are non-essential
These cookies are usually supplied by our service partners and help us to filter out irrelevant messages and to make sure that we only send users interesting and relevant information. We also use some non-essential cookies for analytical purposes. Here’s a list of non-essential cookies and how they’re used:
Survey control cookies
These are provided by our service partners to enable us to send users surveys about our sites. Accepting this cookie means you won’t be asked to complete the survey if you’ve already done so or declined previously.
From time to time Oxford Risk uses Google Analytics. This is a web analytics service provided by Google enabling us to recognise repeat visitors to the site. By matching an anonymous, randomly generated identifier, we’re able to record specific browsing information such as how you arrive at the site, the pages you view, options you select, and the path you take through the site. By monitoring this information we’re able to make improvements to our sites.
Google also reserve the rights to the data collected.
