Cookies are small files which are stored on a user’s computer and hold data relating to a specific website. Cookies are placed on the user’s computer by that website and accessed each time a user browses the site.
The cookies used by OpenBrix collect data to help us improve our website by seeing which parts of the site are being used, how users are navigating to each page and what items on each page they prefer to click on.
Below we have listed each of the cookies that our site uses, with detail as to why we use them. We’ve also detailed the time each cookie is kept on your system. This can be persistent (the cookie remains after you leave the site, to be used when you return) or session (the cookie is deleted once your visit is complete).
You can use this page to opt-out of certain types of cookie. Opting out will apply only to the browser or device that you are currently using, so you may need to change these settings again if you use other browsers or devices to access the site.
If you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of our website.
If you wish to restrict or block web browser cookies which are set on your device then you can do this through your browser settings; the Help function within your browser should tell you how. Alternatively, you may wish to visit www.aboutcookies.org, which contains comprehensive information on how to control browser cookies on a wide variety of desktop browsers.
We use the following types of cookies:
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, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services.
Analytical or performance cookies. These allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.
You can find more information about the individual cookies we use and the purposes for which we use them in the table below. If you have any queries or require more information on this please email corporate@OpenBrix.co.uk
Strictly Necessary Cookies [LIST REQUIRED]
Some cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features. Without these cookies, we will not be able to connect you to our site properly.
Persistent or Session
Performance Cookies [LIST REQUIRED]
These cookies collect information about how visitors use our site, for instance which page is viewed most often, and if error messages are seen. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information that these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how our website works.
Like most websites, we use analytics software, such as Google Analytics. This software gathers anonymous data relating to how our site is being used and then provides us with aggregated visitor statistics, number of page views etc. We supplement this data with our own analytics, which allows us to do more in-depth analysis of how people use our site. We feel that this information is vital to us, helping us to make the site as easy to use and useful as possible.
We regularly add new features and change existing features to make the site work as well as possible, and to make the experience as helpful as possible to all parties (we care about the experience all of our users get!) To ensure that the changes we make are useful, we test variants of these changes across our site, reviewing data from our analytics system to see what works best. The cookies below allow us to do that.
Persistent or Session
Functionality Cookies [LIST REQUIRED]
These cookies allow us to remember choices you have made to provide a more enhanced, personal service. The information these cookies collect relates only to our website.
We have a bunch of features which need to understand what you’ve been doing on the site recently, and to reduce the amount of times you have to do the same thing. For instance, you don’t want to fill in the contact agent form again and again with the same data, so we store that information to reduce the time it takes and to make life easier. All the cookies below perform a similar function.
Persistent or Session
Local Storage [LIST REQUIRED]
In addition to cookies, local storage allows us to use a tiny bit of space on your machine to store information, in much the same way as cookies. We use this to store information which, we feel, enhances your journey through the site by remembering previous actions and making them default for the future. All local storage is persistent, with no expiry.
