Rules around cookies have changed - See how we are helping you...
The new Regulations on cookies, enforceable from May 2012, state that website owners must gain a visitor´s consent to be tracked by cookies on their website.
We wanted to help explain what cookies are, the different types, why Paragon Advance uses them and how they affect your web experience.
What is a cookie
A cookie will typically contain details such as the domain from which the cookie has come, a value which is usually a random unique number as an identifier and the lifetime (expiry) of the cookie.
What will a cookie do for me
Paragon Advance wants to provide a good customer experience on its website and here´s an example of how cookies can allow this to happen:
My Polices / My Quotes: To remember the quotes that you have made and also obtaining your policy documents when you return back to the website.
Content: Show you relevant content such as product recommends depending on your browser and buyer behaviour.
User Behaviour: Coremetrics analytics to track website visits and clicks for pages visited with hourly transaction volume. This allows us to see how our customers like to use our website and which pages or functions they prefer; this allows us to continually improve our service.
Third Party: Selected partner cookies which track where the users visit originated from. This allows us to see where your visit originated from, especially advertising on partner sites, present appropriate offers and helps prevent fraud and detect spammers.
Why do I need to know this
Paragon Advance respects customer concerns and we want you to know why we ask you to opt-in and accept cookies. We want to be clear that accepting cookies does not give us access to your computer or personal information.
