Cookies Policy

Effective date: January 14, 2019

Caledonian Media Pty Ltd ("us", "we", or "our") operates the https://www.caledonianmedia.org website (hereinafter referred to as the "Service").

This page informs you of our policies regarding the use of cookies. Caledonian Media Pty Ltd operates a strict privacy policy around the world (our full privacy policy can be viewed here). We are committed to being transparent about how we use cookies on our websites and the technologies that underpin their collection and usage.

Why cookies are important

Cookies help make your online experience more efficient and relevant to your interests. For instance, they are used to remember your preferences on sites you visit often, to remember your user ID and the contents of your shopping baskets, and to help you navigate between pages more efficiently. Please read below for more detail.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file, or files on your computer, phone, or other device with a browser to save snippets of text for reference by the website you are visiting.

All cookies have expiration dates in them that determine how long they stay in your browser:

Session cookies - these are temporary cookies that expire (and are automatically erased) whenever you close your browser. For example, we use session cookies to grant access to content and enable commenting (things you have to log in to do).

Persistent cookies - these usually have an expiration date and so stay in your browser until they expire, or until you manually delete them. For example we use persistent cookies for functionality including the "Stay logged-in" tick box. We also use persistent cookies to better understand usage patterns so that we can improve the site for our customers.

We've included more details below to help you understand what kinds of cookies and other technologies we use.

Other technologies linked to cookies

There are other technologies which can seem similar to cookies, but are not the same, including pixels and site tags. These pixels or tags can be used to retrieve information such as your device type or operating system, IP address, time of visit, etc. (Please see our Privacy Policy for more details on the types of information that may be collected.) They are sometimes used to create or access the cookies on your browser, but are not cookies themselves. Only cookies which you can control will appear in the cookie consent tool.

What types of cookies does Caledonian Media use and why?

Cookies are grouped into the following categories:

Essential - these are cookies that are required for the regular operation of our websites. For example, some cookies allow us to ensure that people can access the subscription pages in the correct region and language for them, access log-in pages, or carry out fraud detection and security checks (along with other similar things). These are essential for the website to work properly.

Functional - these remember your preferences, and are intended to make your experience on our websites better for you. For example, a functional cookie is used to remember your log-in details securely if you have ticked the "Stay logged-in" box. This makes it possible for users and subscribers to return to our sites without having to log in every time.

Analytics – these cookies are used for performance measurement to understand things including how many people visit our websites, how they navigate our sites, and what content is popular. This allows us to improve your experience with us. Full details of the cookies we use for analytics purposes can be found below. Additionally, you can see how Google Analytics (our analytics tool) uses cookie information when you use our partners' sites by visiting www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners, or any other URL Google may provide from time to time.

To ensure compliance with our policies, we restrict the use of third-party cookies to trusted partners of Caledonian Media. For example, we currently allow partners including Mailchimp and teachable.com.
