Our cookie policy

Cookies – what are they?

A “cookie” is a small text file, typically of letters and numbers (with an ID tag), which a server downloads on to your computer or mobile the first time you visit a website. This allows a website to recognise your device. The server then sends a cookie either back to the website each time you visit it or to different website if you visit another website which recognises the same cookie.

Different cookies perform different functions. Some help you navigate through pages, storing “preferences” information and generally making the website easier to use. Other cookies identify products or goods you may be interested in and are used to provide you with tailored advertising, or to count the number of the times sites are visited, and which pages are the most popular.

Cookies contain very small amounts of information. Therefore they do not usually contain data from which you could be identified or personal data, although some cookies can be used to create a profile of your surfing habits.

Clear Channel Direct’s website is set to allow a cookie called Google Analytics, estimated to be the most widely used website statistics service. It is a service that generates detailed statistics about the visitors to a website. The statistics Clear Channel receives include the average time users spend on the website, the amount of times the website is visited and which web pages are the most popular. Clear Channel can use this data to enhance users’ web experience. It will never use any personal data.

Additionally, the Website may also set a “session cookie” which helps us administer the Website. A session cookie expires when you close your browser, and does not retain any information about you after it expires.

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies. You may prevent the use of cookies by configuring your web browser accordingly, but please note that this may hinder some of the Website functionality. Please consult your browsers help file for more information on cookies and session cookies.

How can Clear Channel use cookies?

The law which applies to how Clear Channel uses cookies and similar devices for storing information on your computer or mobile changed on 26 May 2011. The new legislation does not prevent website owners using cookies, but does specify that users must be informed of the use of cookies and be given choice as to which of their online activities are monitored.

The Information Commissioner’s Office has set guidance on the steps Clear Channel, and other website owners, must take to comply with the legislative changes. One of those steps is gaining your consent for Clear Channel’s use of cookies, as described above.

How does Clear Channel ask for consent?

As set out above, Clear Channel uses a cookie for analytics and by visiting our website www.clearchanneldirect.co.uk Clear Channel will assume you are happy with our use of cookies.

However if you do not consent to Clear Channel’s use of cookies (or give consent but later change your mind) you are free to disable cookies at any time through your browser’s settings (for more information on how to do this, please see the “How to delete cookies” tab at http://www.allaboutcookies.org/cookies/). If you choose to disable cookies, please be aware that some parts of the website may not work properly and your site usage won’t be counted and measured as described above so Clear Channel won’t be able to take your actions into account when analysing data and seeking to improve Clear Channel’s service based on that analysis.
