The CV Centre Cookie Policy

In common with the vast majority of commercial websites, we use 'cookies' - small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer or mobile device - to enable us to provide a more user-friendly service. Most web browsers are configured to automatically accept cookies, but you can usually change your browser to prevent that, although this will detrimentally affect your use of our web sites as well as many others. You should note that, in order to measure performance, our advertising and affiliate partners, e.g. Google, may also make use of cookies and that we may have access to resulting data.

What are cookies used for?

The main purposes for which cookies are used are:

1. Essential cookies

These are used for technical purposes essential to the effective operation of our websites, particularly in relation to on-line transactions.

2. Performance Cookies

We utilise other cookies to analyse how our visitors use our websites and to monitor website performance. This allows us to provide a high quality experience by customising our offering and quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise. For example, we might use performance cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages.

This analysis includes the use of Google Analytics. You can learn more about the privacy and security of Google Analytics data at http://www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html, and that page also provides a mechanism to opt-out of Google Analytics entirely. We have set Google Analytics Data Sharing Settings to "Do not share" for our site.

If you complete a transaction then we also use Microsoft Analytics. For information and opt-out please see http://privacy.microsoft.com/en-gb/fullnotice.mspx

3. Cookies used to meet contractual obligations 

These are used to enable The CV Centre to meet its contractual obligations to make payments to third parties when a product is purchased by someone who has visited our website from a site operated by those parties.
