The Money Platform Cookies Policy

This policy ("Cookie Policy") forms part of The Money Platform Privacy Policy ("Privacy Policy"). Capitalised terms not otherwise defined in this Cookie Policy have the meaning given to them in the Privacy Policy.

What are cookies?

Cookies are data files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to the device or browser you use when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website which recognises that cookie.

Please note that we can also collect information about Platform usage from data contained in "log files" from third parties. Log files are not cookies; they do not contain any personal data; and they are not used to identify your personal use of the Platform. When you request any web page from the Platform, web servers automatically obtain your domain name and internet protocol address (usually referred to as an "IP address"), but they reveal nothing personal about you and that data is only used to examine Platform traffic in aggregate, to investigate abuse of the Platform and its users, and/or to cooperate with law enforcement. Such data is not disseminated to third parties, except in aggregate.

How do we use cookies?

We use cookies in order to ensure our Platform functions correctly and to improve our understanding of how you use the Platform in order to make improvements. Cookies cannot harm your computer.

What cookies do we use?

Firstly, we explain what each type is and then, in the table below, we have stated which types we actually use.

In general, there are four different types of cookie.

  • Necessary cookies: those required for the operation of the Platform, which do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you have been on the internet.
  • Analytical/performance cookies: these allow us to collect information about how you use the Platform, such as, how you move around our website and if you experience any errors. These cookies do not collect personal data. The information collected is anonymous and is only used to help us improve the way the Platform works, understand what interests our users generally and measure how effective our advertising is. Some of the performance cookies we use are issued as part of services provided by third parties, like Google Analytics.
  • Functionality cookies: these are used to provide services or to recognise you when you return to our website. These would enable us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences and improve your visit.
  • Targeting cookies: these record your visit to the Platform, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. They are linked to services provided by third parties, such as "Like" and "Share" buttons. The third party provides these services in return for recognising that you have visited our website. The third party may subsequently use information about your visit to target advertising to you on other websites and present you with advertisements that you may be interested in.

We have summarized information about the actual cookies we use and the purposes for which we use them in the following table:
