Wealthify use four main categories of cookie on our website:
These cookies are essential in helping you move around and use the features of the Wealthify website. Without these cookies, we would be unable to offer you the full scope of services our website provides.
An example of this type of cookie includes ‘.wealthifysession’ – which is used to maintain your browser session between website requests when navigating during the same session.
These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages.
These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works. An example of this type of cookie is ‘_ga’ – which is a Google analytics cookie. This generates statistical data on how you use our website.
Functionality cookies are used to improve the functionality of the website and make it easier for you to use. These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. They are used to provide services such as our Live chat, and identify you when you return to our website. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
An example of this cookie that we use on our website is ‘olfsk’ – this is used by Olark, our provider of the Live chat service.
Targeting cookies record users visits to the website, these cookies collect several pieces of information about your browsing habits. We use this information to make our website and our advertising relevant to your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation.
An example of this type of cookie would be ‘ads/ga-audiences’ – which is a Google analytics cookie, used by Google to re-engage visitors likely to convert to customers.
Except for essential cookies, cookies will have an expiry date where after a set period they will expire and no longer be present on your device. For example, the Google analytics cookie on our website will expire after 14 months from the last time you visited our Site.
