A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that is sent to your browser and stored on the hard drive of your computer (or internet enabled device) when you visit a website.
Our Websites use different types of cookies for different purposes – we use ‘necessary’ cookies so that our Websites operate efficiently and securely and ‘preferences’ cookies to remember your preferences when you visit our Websites, so that you enjoy a better experience when you visit our Websites.
We use ‘statistics’ cookies to improve our Websites and we and other companies use ‘marketing’ cookies to provide you with offers and advertising which we and they think will be of interest to you based on the websites you visit. You can find more information about ‘necessary’, ‘preferences’, ‘statistics’ and ‘marketing’ cookies in the ‘What cookies do we use?‘ section below.
Cookies set by us (Autoglym, a brand of Altro Limited) are called “first party cookies “. Cookies set by parties other than us, such as Facebook, Google or YouTube, are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through our Websites (like personalised advertising, social media plug-ins, interactive content and analytics). The companies that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer both when you use it to visit one of our Websites and also when you use your computer to visit other websites. We also use some third party cookies to power the e-commerce sections of our Websites including Magento’s cookies which provide shopping basket and check-out services.
Our Websites use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. The cookies that we use on our Websites fall into the following groups:
Preferences – we use some cookies to remember your preferences in order to improve your experience of using our Websites – this includes cookies to remember whether or not you consent to the use of different types of cookies we use (e.g. ‘preference’, ‘marketing’ and ‘statistics’ cookies).
Marketing – these cookies enable us and other companies to track and target the interests of our Website users in order to build a profile about you and send you offers and advertisements which we and they think will be of interest to you based on your visits to our Websites and other websites.
Statistics – these cookies provide information about visitors to our Websites including the number of times you visit our Websites, how long you spend on our Websites, the pages you visit etc. This enables us to understand how effective our Websites are.
You can find more detail about the types of cookies which are used on each of our Websites, who sets them, what they do and how long they last for in the table in the table below.
You can find more details about the types of first and third party cookies served through our Websites and the purposes they perform in the table below:
You have the right to choose whether or not to accept cookies and you can use the following tools to control your preferences:
The “help” portion of the toolbar on most internet browsers will tell you how to change your browser cookie settings, including how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, and how to disable cookies altogether.
The privacy and browser settings in your operating system will also provide you with options to request that websites do not track your visits to them and stop you being tracked when you use different devices.
Please note that if you choose not to accept some types of cookies you may not have access to certain features that make your experience of our Websites more efficient and some of the features on our Websites may not function properly (and in particular, those parts of our Website which use ‘necessary’ cookies).

Advertising Networks – most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or http://www.youronlinechoices.com. These websites will scan your device to tell you which of their members are using cookies on your devices in order to send you personalised advertising and provide you with the ability to turn-off cookies from those members that you choose, which includes some of the third parties who set cookies on our sites such as Facebook, Google and Quantcast.
Google Analytics – To opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites, Google has made a plug-in available which you can download and install on your web-browser so that Google Analytics do not track your online behaviour when you visit our Websites and other websites – you can download the plug-in here http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has visited our Websites or opened an e-mail that we have sent them. Some emails that we send you have no tracking in at all e.g. service emails with invoices attached. Other emails we send we put in tracking so that we can tell how much traffic those emails send to our Website, whether the user has opened and clicked on the email, which we can track to an individual level. We rarely use the latter information at a personal level, rather we use it to understand open and click rates on our emails to try and improve them. Sometimes we do use the personal information e.g. to re-email people who didn’t click the first time. We will only contact you with marketing communications if you have provided your consent or if the law allows us to. If you want to be sure that none of your email activity is tracked then you should opt out of Autoglym’s emails which you can do via the link at the bottom of every email. Also, in many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies or similar technology (such as clear gifs) to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.
