Cookies Policy

RWA Compliance Services Ltd (“RWA”, “Company“, “we“, “us“, and “our“) uses cookies and similar technologies to recognise you when you visit our website https://rwaconsultancy.com (“Website“). 

This Policy, which was published in October 2020, explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them. 

In some cases, we may use cookies to collect personal information, or data that becomes personal information if we combine it with other information.

 

What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.

Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, RWA) are called ‘first-party cookies’. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called ‘third-party cookies’. 

Third-party cookies enable third-party features or functionality to be provided on, or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content, and analytics). The parties that set these third-party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

 

Why do we use cookies?

We use first and third-party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Website to operate, and we refer to these as ‘essential’ or ‘strictly necessary’ cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Online Properties. 

Third-parties serve cookies through our Websites for advertising, analytics, and other purposes. 

The specific types of first and third-party cookies served through our Website and the purposes they perform are described below (please note that the specific cookies served may vary depending on the specific Online Properties you visit):

  • Website information relating to user context  (e.g. language, tokens etc.).
  • Web traffic analytics
  • Cookie acceptance status

How can I control cookies?

You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies. You can exercise your cookie rights by setting your preferences in the Cookie Consent Manager, either within the site or within your internet browser. Your browser’s Cookie Consent Manager allows you to select which categories of cookies you accept or reject. Essential cookies cannot be rejected as they are strictly necessary to provide you with services.

If you choose to reject cookies, you may still use our website though your access to some functionality and areas of our website may be restricted. You may also set or amend your web browser controls to accept or refuse cookies. As the means by which you can refuse cookies through your web browser controls vary from browser-to-browser, you should visit your browser’s help menu for more information.

In addition, most advertising networks offer you a way to opt-out of targeted advertising. 

 

Essential website cookies

These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with services available through our Website and to use some of its features, such as access to secure areas.

 

What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?

Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has visited our Websites or opened an e-mail including them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within a website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to the website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

 

How often will you update this Cookie Policy?

We may update this Cookie Policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. Please, therefore, re-visit this Cookie Policy regularly to stay informed about our use of cookies and related technologies.

The date at the top of this Cookie Policy indicates when it was last updated.

 

Where can I get further information?

If you have any questions about our use of cookies or other technologies, please contact Ash Patel, managing director, RWA, by email at ash.patel@rwagroup.co.uk or by telephone on 01604 709509.
