How and why we use cookies

We collect and use cookies on the IHOFX websites for the following purposes:

Functionality Cookies: These cookies are used to remember your preferences so that it is easier and faster for you to navigate our websites, and to allow us to display our webpages in the way you choose. We also use cookies to record and store our users’ acceptance of our Cookie Policy.

Analytics Cookies: We use third-party analytics tools, which employ these cookies to collect statistical information about the users of our websites, e.g. the number of users, page views or impressions, entry and exit points to and from our websites, how much time users spend on each page and which links they choose to click, etc. Such information is captured and stored only in aggregated, anonymized form (i.e. we do not identify you personally from such information). We use such information to understand how people use our websites and to help us improve their content and layout.

Marketing Cookies: We use third-party marketing/re-marketing cookies to gather information about your browsing activities on the IHOFX websites to ensure that the marketing content on the IHOFX websites is relevant and interest-based. They remember that you have visited our websites and what you have viewed so that such third-party show our advertisements on other internet websites and third-party advertisements to visitors based on their past visits to our websites. 

We do not have access to, nor control over, (i) these third parties’ use of cookies placed on your browser (including the information gathered via such cookies) or the Non-Cookie Browser Information; (ii) the tracking technologies they use; (iii) whether or how they aggregate such information with other information which they may have or is likely to have access to, with regards to you, (iv) the purposes for which they use such information, or (v) the content of their advertisements. This is governed by such third parties’ terms of use and their privacy policies. You may wish to take the necessary actions to manage your privacy settings and control over your information and data vis-à-vis such third parties as you deem appropriate. Opting out of marketing cookies does not mean that you will no longer see any advertisements. It just means that if you disable or delete those cookies, you will no longer receive advertising that is tailored specifically to you according to your preferences and usage patterns. 

What if I do not allow the use of cookies?

If you do not want cookies to be placed on your device, you can control this by disabling or deleting the cookies by adjusting the settings of your web browser on your device.

If you choose to block or restrict the use of cookies, some areas of the IHOFX websites may not be accessible or display/function properly.

Further, if you delete your cookies, we will not be able to know that you have opted out of targeted advertising on our website, recognize that you have agreed to our Cookie Policy, or remember your preferences. It means that you will need to accept the use of cookies and provide other cookie-related information, or (as the case may be) opt out again. 

Apart from cookies, some information relating to your visits to the IHOFX websites may be captured through your web browser (depending on your settings) whenever a connection is made over the internet, due to how the internet functions (“Non-Cookie Browser Information”). This means that the capture of this information is subject to your own settings, and not within IHOFX’s control. Consequently, the disabling and deletion of our cookies will not prevent such Non-Cookie Browser Information from being captured.
