Our website uses a number of cookies and similar technologies for a number of reasons. We explain these in this Policy, using ‘cookies’ to refer to both cookies and other similar technologies.
- What are cookies?
Cookies are files with a small amount of data which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies store information regarding website visitors. Cookies are sent to the data subject’s browser from a website and stored on the device. Tracking technologies also used are beacons, tags, and scripts to collect and track information and to improve and analyse our services provided.
First and third-party cookies: whether a cookie is “first” or “third” party refers to the domain placing the cookie. First-party cookies are those set by a website that is being visited by the user at the time (e.g. cookies placed by www.centurionlgplus.com). Third-party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than that of the website being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and another entity sets a cookie through that website, this would be a third-party cookie.
Persistent cookies: these cookies remain on a user’s device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the website that created that particular cookie.
Session cookies: these cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.
