A cookie can be a “persistent” or “session” cookie. A “persistent” cookie will remain for a period of time set for that cookie. A “session-based” cookie is allocated only for the duration of your visit to our website and automatically expires when you close down your browser.
Our cookies fall into one the following categories or “types”:
- Strictly necessary – these are used to help make our Site work efficiently.
- Performance – these are used to analyze the way our Site works and how we can improve it.
- Functionality – these help to enhance your experience by doing things like remembering products you’ve added to your basket.
- Targeting/advertising – these may be used to share information with third parties who we advertise with, to identify the parts of the Site that you are interested in, to show you content we think may also be of interest to you, to tailor how we communicate with you, or to tailor the contents of the communications we send to you.
In addition to the cookies we use on our Site, we also use tracking technologies in some emails and notifications we send to you. These help us to understand whether you have opened the email and how you have interacted with it.
Do Not Track
Do Not Track (DNT) is a concept that has been promoted by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites by using browser settings. As there is no industry standard for DNT at this time, MTAV does not generally respond to “do not track” signals.
