A cookie is a small amount of data sent to your computer or mobile phone from a website.
Cookies are used in order to improve your experience when visiting a website, for example, by:
- enabling a website to recognise your device so you don't have to give the same information several times during one task
- recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don't need to do it for every web page requested
- measuring how many people are using the site, so it can be made easier to use and there's enough capacity to ensure it is fast to browse.
A cookie is stored on your device's hard drive. Cookies are not programs and do not collect information from your computer. Many cookies are automatically deleted after you finish using a website.
Progressio's website does not store any information that would, on its own, allow us to identify individual users of our website without their permission. Any cookies that may be used by this website are used either solely on a per session basis or to maintain user preferences. Your preferences are not shared with any third parties.
Several cookies are set by our web servers to ensure that your session is maintained for the duration of your visit (until you close your web browser), to help the site remember your settings and preferences (so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to us), and to help us to diagnose and improve the website.
We also allow cookies set by Google Analytics. These allow us to measure visitor numbers and website usage. Again, these cookies do not identify you personally but simply assist us in understanding how people are using our website (for example, trends of web pages being read) and therefore enable us to better plan new content and improve visitor usability.
