What are Cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on a user’s device by a website when a user first visits that website, which store information related to that device, enabling the server to store and recall (as necessary) the activity of that device.
Cookies can do several things, for example, counting the number of people that view a particular website, or remembering your preferences such as language or region, or recalling what you have put in your shopping basket (where this is applicable).

Does the Engenco Group use electronic mechanisms such as Cookies?

When you visit the Engenco Group websites you will generally browse anonymously unless you have logged into a client portal or accessed the website from a personalised communication from us.

For all visitors to the Engenco Group websites, we use cookies and other web browser technologies to collect information such as the server your computer is logged on to, your browser type (for example, Chrome, Safari, Microsoft Edge or Firefox), and your IP address. (An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer automatically and required for using the Internet). We may also derive the location associated with an IP address.

The Engenco Group and the host of our websites (Site Host) use data collection devices such as cookies to deliver customised visitor experiences and to analyse website user metrics.

What types of cookies does the Engenco Group use?

Cookies may be classified according to:

  • the type of entity that places the cookie on a user’s device
  • the duration the cookies remain on a device, and
  • their purpose.

First-party cookies are those created and placed on the user’s device by the website the user is visiting. These cookies allow the website to personalise the user’s website experience by remembering things like a user’s language or location preferences, usernames or passwords to keep users logged in, contents of a shopping cart, or to manage the performance of the website.

Third-party cookies are placed on a user’s device by a third party, that is not the owner of the website being visited, like an advertiser or an analytic system, for example Google Analytics. This typically occurs when the website incorporates elements from other sites, such as images, social media plugins or advertising.

Session cookies allow websites to recognise and connect user’s activities during a browsing session. They may be used for a variety of purposes, such as remembering what product you have put in a shopping cart, as well as for security purposes. These cookies expire once you close your browser or after the session ends.

Persistent cookies are stored on a user’s device in-between sessions. These allow your activities across various websites to be remembered. This category of cookies includes all cookies that remain on your device until you erase them or, if the cookie has an inbuilt expiration date, your browser will erase these.

Below you will find a list of the types of cookies used by the Engenco Group, together with a description of how these cookies are used, and options for managing these:

Is personal information collected on the Engenco Group websites?

Some personal information is automatically collected from you when you visit any of our websites. The Engenco Group and Site Host receive and may collect the name of the domain from which you access the internet, the internet protocol address of the computer you are using, the browser software you use and your operating system, as well as the date and time you access one of our websites, the geographic location from which you access that website and the internet address of the website from which you link directly to our website.

In general, you can browse our sites without revealing any information other than the information automatically collected, outlined above. However, once you register or provide more specific personal information, you are no longer anonymous to the Engenco Group and the Site Host. During registration or order entry processes, you may give the Engenco Group or the Site Host general identity information about yourself, for example, your name, company name, business address, business telephone number or business email address and more detailed information for specific purposes, such as a special interest in products or industries, your job responsibilities and payment preferences for online purchases. As you browse our sites, the Engenco Group or the Site Host may collect certain information about how you use that site, regardless of any registration.

How does the Engenco Group use the personal information collected on its website?

The Engenco Group and the Site Host use the information collected to do internal research on our users’ demographics, interests and behaviours to better understand and service our customers.
