Introduction

You may not have given any thought to how websites use data to improve their services, measure how popular the site is, or make sure that you receive content or adverts of interest to you.

These processes require information to be collected and processed. This commonly includes information about the devices you use (such as laptops and mobile phones) and information obtained from your browsing activities. This information is collected using cookies (small files of data sent by a website, stored on your device and read by the website) and other similar technologies such as tags, pixels and device identifiers which are deployed on or collected from your device when you land on a website or access content through a mobile app.

For the purposes of this cookie policy, we use the term "cookie" to cover our use of all types of similar technology used to track online activity, including cookies, tags, pixels and beacons. We hope that this policy helps you understand and feel more confident about cookies.

This is the cookie policy for www.devinehomes.co.uk (this/our "Site") and we hope that it helps you to understand our use of cookies. You can read more about our use of personal data in general in our privacy policy, here.

Our Site uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our Site. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our Site. We only use cookies that are 'strictly necessary' on our Site. For more information on this type of cookie, please see further below.

This policy also covers the cookies that we place in our marketing emails. This helps us to understand which emails are opened, which are ignored, and which types of content prompts people to click through to our site.

The types of cookie that may be used on websites in general

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These cookies are required for the operation of a website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of a website.
  • Analytical/performance cookies. These cookies allow website owners to recognise and count the number of visitors to a website, and to see how visitors move around when they are using it. Information collected by these cookies tends to be aggregated.
  • Functionality cookies. These cookies enable websites to recognise you when you return. This means that the site can personalise content for you and remember your preferences.
  • Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to a website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. This information may also be shared with third parties (such as advertising partners and digital agencies) for this purpose and to ensure that adverts that you see displayed are relevant to you.

Some cookies are deleted when you close your browser. These cookies are known as 'session cookies'.

Some other cookies have a longer lifetime (which varies cookie by cookie) and will be stored on your device until their expiration date. These are known as 'persistent cookies'.

We have included a table at the end of this policy showing all of the cookies that we use on the Site if you would like more detail.
