Protecting and managing your online privacy

Dizions Ltd is accredited to ISO27001:2013 and is committed to protecting you and your data (anonymous or otherwise) that we collect online. This section tells you how we use cookies, why we do it and how this allows us to deliver our service. It also tells you how you can manage what cookies are stored on your device.

By using our website (through any device) you agree that this Cookies Policy applies to that use in addition to any other terms and conditions which may apply.

We reserve the right to make changes to our Cookies Policy. Any such changes will appear here and become effective immediately. Your continued use of our websites is taken as meaning that you agree to any such changes.

What is a cookie?

Cookies are files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to the device you use when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies do lots of different and useful jobs, such as remembering your preferences, and generally improving your online experience.

There are different types of cookies. They all work in the same way, but have minor differences:

Session cookies

Session cookies last only for the duration of your visit and are deleted when you close your browser. They facilitate tasks such as allowing a website to identify that a user of a particular device is navigating from page to page, supporting website security or basic functionality.

Many of the cookies we use are session cookies. For example, they help us to ensure the security of your session, and can also keep you signed in while you move between pages or to other areas.

Our session cookies used for security are designed to be very difficult to read, change, access or use except by us. They contain no personal information that can be used to identify an individual.

Persistent cookies

Persistent cookies last after you have closed your browser, and allow a website to remember your actions and preferences. Sometimes persistent cookies are used by other websites to provide targeted advertising based on the browsing history of the device.

First and third party cookies

Whether a cookie is a first or third party cookie depends on which website the cookie comes from. First party cookies are those set by or on behalf of the website visited. All other cookies are third party cookies. We use both first party and third party cookies. You can read more about them below.

Strictly necessary cookies

These cookies are essential to enable you to move around the website and use its features, and for ensuring the security of your online experience. Without these cookies, some functionality can't be provided. These cookies don't gather information about you for the purposes of marketing.

Performance cookies

These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for example, which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don't collect information that identifies a visitor, although they may collect the IP address of the device used to access the site. All information these cookies collect is anonymous and is only used to improve how a website works.

By using our website, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device; however, you can block them using your browser settings. Popular web browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari) have facilities to do this.

Functionality cookies

These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name). The information these cookies collect is anonymised (i.e. it does not contain your name, address or other personal details) and they don't track your browsing activity across other websites.

By using our website, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device; however you can block them using your browser settings but this may impair your operation of the system.
