Like most other digital companies, we use cookies and related technologies to provide our services to you (collectively called “Cookies”).

This Policy explains how we use Cookies on our website and services.  

1.     What is a Cookie?

A cookie is a small file consisting of letters and numbers that is downloaded onto your computer or other device. Cookies enable our systems to recognise your device. This process helps the effective operation of our sites and online services.

2.     Does Showt use Cookies?

Like most websites and online service providers we use Cookies in the course of providing you with our services.

3.     What Cookies does Showt use and why?

We mainly use Cookies to make our services work and to improve the features we provide and the user experience. By using our services you consent to us placing the following types of Cookies on your computer or other device:

 To operate our service – we use one master Cookie to register login, session and status data. For example, this allows you to move around our services and enables us to know whether you are logged in or not. We also use Cookies to remember if you have seen our cookie banner, to remember if you have signed in previously and to remember service settings that you choose to customise. These Cookies are encrypted and only processed by the local machine to limit the impact of slow internet connections.

  To improve performance - we use Cookies to collect information about how users and visitors use our services. For example, which pages get visited most frequently and if users get error messages from pages on our website or app. These Cookies do not identify you personally. The information that these Cookies collect is aggregated and anonymous.

  To provide you with optimised advertising – we use Cookies to make any advertising you see relevant. These cookies are used to deliver advertisements or links relevant to you and your interests. They also limit the number of times you see a particular advertisement and assist in measuring how effective an advertising campaign is. These Cookies may be placed by us, or by advertising networks with our, or our affiliates’, permission. You should note that without these Cookies you may still see and receive advertising through our services, but it may be less relevant to you.

  To allow integration with third party services – we may allow third parties (for example, Twitter or Facebook) to set cookies on your device. In these cases if our services display content from a third party, the third party may place their own cookies onto your computer or device. We do not control the use of such cookies and do not expect to have any access to data collected by these third parties. All use of cookies by a third party is subject to that party’s respective privacy policy and cookies policy.

4.     How to manage and refuse Cookies

 You may mange and refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate “Do Not Track” or similar settings in your preferred browser or operating system. However, if you do this you will not have access to many features that may make your browsing of our website and use of our services easier, and some of our services may not operate correctly.
