6. Digital Marketing – Cookies – Website and/or App
6.1. Our Website and/or App makes use of “cookies” to automatically collect information and data through the standard operation of the Internet servers. “Cookies” are small text files a Website and/or App can use (and which Vox may use) to recognise repeat customers, facilitate the customer’s on-going access to and use of a Website and/or App and allow a Website and/or App to track usage behaviour and compile aggregate data that will allow the Website and/or App operator to improve the functionality of the Website and/or App and its content.
6.2. The type of information collected by cookies is not used to personally identify customers. If customers do not want information collected using cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows customers to deny or accept the cookie feature.
6.3. Please note that cookies may be necessary to provide customers with certain features available on our Digital Marketing Services, and thus if customers disable the cookies on the customer’s browser, customers may not be able to use those features, and the customer’s access to our Digital Marketing Services will therefore be limited. If customers do not disable “cookies”, customers are deemed to consent to our use of any personal information collected using those cookies.
