    Many cookies on our websites perform essential functions and enable you to move around our websites and use their features.
    They help us understand how our websites are used by visitors, so that we can improve what we do online. We use Web Analytics tool (Google Analytics) for this. They look at things like how long our websites take to load, how they are used, and what information visitors to our sites look at most. This helps us to improve the way our websites work, for example, by ensuring that you find what you are looking for easily. They also help identify any parts of our websites that aren't working as well as they should - so we can fix things and make our websites better for you and other users. We refer to these cookies in this policy as "Performance Cookies".

    A further type of cookie lets us know how well our online advertising works, and where we should place our online advertisements. These cookies let us know if one of our advertisements on another website like Google or Yahoo has sent a visitor to an IDIS website.

    This type of cookie also helps us reach people who are more interested in IDIS products. So, if you visit an IDIS website you may see our advertisements on other sites. This is known as re-marketing or behavioural advertising and is used to make our advertising more relevant to your interests. We refer to these cookies in this policy as "Advertising Cookies".

    We also combine information collected from cookies with any records we may have of you as a customer of IDIS. You have the right to object to our monitoring of your activity on our website for these purposes. For more information on how to exercise your right to object, please see the section below entitled ‘Contact Us’.
