WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF COOKIES?
Session cookies are only stored for the duration of your visit to a website and are deleted from your device when you close your browser;
Persistent cookies are saved on your device for a set period of time after the browser has closed and are used where we (or a third party) need to identify you for a later browsing session.
First party cookies are set by the website you are visiting; and
Third-party cookies are cookies used within our services that are set by other organizations. These include cookies from external analytics services which help us to understand the use of our sites, or by advertisers so that they can track the effectiveness of their advertisements. Third-party cookies can also be set by selected social media companies to enable you to share our content with your friends and networks, which may impact the content and messages you see on other websites you visit.
Essential and Functional Cookies
We use these cookies to enable certain online functionality including:
accessing your information so we can provide you with customized content and experiences, or remember the last page you visited on the Services;
identifying returning users, registrants, and subscribers and allowing them to be presented with a personalized version of the site;
eliminating the need for returning users to re-enter their login details;
commenting on our sites;
operating a shopping trolley on a variety of our Services including www.magazinesdirect.com;

Analytical Performance and Measurement Cookies
We use these cookies to measure users’ behavior to better develop our Services. By using analytics services provided by third parties such as Google Analytics and ComScore, we can analyze and measure which pages are viewed and how long and which links are followed, and we can use this information to provide more content that is of interest. The data collected will generally be aggregated to provide trends and usage patterns for business analysis, site/platform improvement, and performance metrics and to inform our advertising and marketing strategies. Our cookies, or the resulting analysis, can also be shared with our business partners. We also receive similar information about visitors to the sites of our group companies and other partners.
3. Social Media Cookies
The types of cookies used by these third parties and how they use the information generated by them will be governed by those companies’ privacy policies. If you object to the use of social media cookies please see here How can users manage or opt out of cookies?
4. Other Third Party Cookies
You may notice on some pages of our websites that cookies have been set that are not related to FromMedia. When you visit a page with content embedded from a third party service provider such as YouTube, for example, they may set their own cookies on your device. FromMedia does not control the use of these third party cookies and cannot access them due to the way that cookies work, as cookies can only be accessed by the party who originally set them. Please check the third party websites for more information about these cookies.
Some of our websites use Adobe Flash Player to deliver video and game content to users. Adobe utilise their own cookies, which are not manageable through your browser settings but are used by the Flash Player for similar purposes, such as storing preferences or tracking users. Flash Cookies work in a different way to web browser cookies; rather than having individual cookies for particular jobs, a website is restricted to storing all data in one cookie. You can control how much data, if any, may be stored in that cookie but you cannot choose what type of information is allowed to be stored. You can manage which websites can store information in Flash cookies on your device via the website storage settings panel on the Adobe website.
We also include web beacons in our emails to track the success of our marketing campaigns. This means that if you open an email from us we can see which of the pages of our websites you have visited. Our web beacons do not store additional information on your device but, by communicating with our cookies on your device, they can tell us whether our emails are opened and verify any clicks through to links or advertisements. They enable us to query whether users who do not open our emails wish to continue receiving them and to inform our advertisers in aggregate how many users have clicked on their advertisements within the email. We may also use this information for purposes including determining which of our emails are more interesting to users and for personalizing email campaigns.
If you object to the use of web beacons please see here: How can users manage or opt out of cookies?
