You can control whether or not these cookies are used, but preventing them may mean we can’t offer you some services, and will reduce the support we can offer you.

  • Advertising cookies

Advertising or ‘Targeting’ cookies are linked to services provided by third parties, such as ‘Like’ buttons and ‘Share’ buttons. The third party provides these services in return for recognising that you have visited our website.

What these cookies will do What these cookies WONT do Our cookies
  • Link to social networks like Facebook, who may subsequently use information about your visit to target advertising to you on other websites
  • Provide advertising agencies with information on your visit so that they can present you with adverts that you may be interested in
All of these cookies are managed by third parties, and you may alternatively use the third parties’ own tools to prevent these cookies.

You can control whether or not these cookies are used, but preventing them may stop us from offering you some services.

4. Disabling cookies

If you do not want us to use cookies in your browser, you can remove cookies from your computer’s hard drive, or set your browser to block cookies or to send a warning notice before a cookie is stored on your computer, or you should browse the site using your browser’s anonymous usage setting (called “Incognito” in Chrome, “InPrivate” for Internet Explorer, “Private Browsing” in Firefox and Safari.)
Please note that you may not be able to use many of the services on our website without cookies.

5. Web beacons

Our Web pages contain electronic images known as Web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs or tracking pixels) and are used along with cookies to compile aggregated statistics to analyse how our site is used and may be used in some of our emails to let us know which emails and links have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our customer communications and marketing campaigns.

6. Social buttons

On many of the pages of the site you will see ‘social buttons’. These enable users to share or bookmark the web pages. There are buttons for: Twitter, Google +1, Facebook ‘Like’ and LinkedIn ‘Share’. In order to implement these buttons, and connect them to the relevant social networks and external sites, there are scripts from domains outside of ours. You should be aware that these sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing all around the internet, including on Cheap Window Quotes. So if you click on any of these buttons, these sites will be registering that action and may use that information. In some cases these sites will be registering the fact that you are visiting Cheap Window Quotes, and the specific pages you are on, even if you don’t click on the button if you are logged into their services, like Google and Facebook. You should check the respective policies of each of these sites to see how exactly they use your information and to find out how to opt out, or delete, such information.

7. Email tracking

Some emails that we send you have no tracking in at all e.g. service emails with invoices attached. Other emails we send we put in tracking so that we can tell how much traffic those emails send to our site. Some emails we can track, at an individual level, whether the user has opened and clicked on the email. We rarely use the latter information at a personal level, rather we use it to understand open and click rates on our emails to try and improve them. Sometimes we do use the personal information e.g. to re-email people who didn’t click the first time. If you want to be sure that none of your email activity is tracked then you should opt out of our emails which you can do via the latest email received.
