What are cookies?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating web domain on your subsequent visits to that domain. Most web pages contain elements from multiple web domains so when you visit vixprotection.com your browser may receive cookies from several sources.

Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user's device. Cookies allow you to navigate between pages efficiently, remember preferences and generally improve the user experience. They can also be used to tailor advertising to your interests through tracking your browsing across websites.

Session cookies are deleted automatically when you close your browser and persistent cookies remain on your device after the browser is closed (for example to remember your user preferences when you return to the site).

We may tie the information gathered to your personal information, in accordance with our Privacy Policy. You can read our Privacy Policy here .

Functionality cookies

These cookies allow this Website to remember choices you make, such as your user name, 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.

This Website currently uses no functionality cookies.

Advertising cookies

Advertising cookies (or targeting cookies) collect information about the browsing habits associated with your device and are used to make advertising more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used by services provided by third parties on this Website, such as ‘Like’ or ‘Share’ buttons in addition to providing the requested functionality. Third parties provide these services in return for recognising that you (or more accurately your device has) have visited a certain website. These third parties put down advertising cookies both when you visit our Website and when you use their services and navigate away from our Website. Their privacy practices are set out below:

Use of IP addresses and web logs

VIX Protection may also use a user’s IP address and browser type to help diagnose problems with its server, to administer products and to improve their functionality. An IP address is a numeric code that identifies a user’s computer on the internet. A user’s IP address might also be used to gather broad demographic information. VIX Protection does not use IP addresses to derive the identity of the person using the IP address.

VIX Protection may perform IP lookups to determine which domain a user is coming from (e.g. google.com) to more accurately gauge its users’ demographics. VIX Protection employs a small number of tools which perform IP lookups against visit event data in order to establish the geographical location of visits. This is most frequently seen against search campaigns, and the search entry data is retained as long as VIX Protection's campaign is running.

Cookie Policy does not cover third party websites

Please note that this Cookie Policy does not apply to, and we are not responsible for, the privacy practices of third party websites which may be linked to this Website.

Further information

We will not retain any information collected for longer than it is reasonably necessary for us to do so.

VIX Protection is the data controller in respect of any personal information processed by us under this Cookie Policy.

If you have questions in relation to this Cookie Policy or any feedback for us, email us at vic@vixprotection.com

If we make material changes, we’ll notify you by posting a notice on our Website. If you continue using this Website after the notice is posted, you’re accepting the new Cookie Policy.
