Cookie Policy

Summary

To make full use of the features and services we offer at FindMyPub.com, your computer, tablet or mobile phone will need to accept cookies, as we can only provide you with certain features of this website by using them. By using the FindMyPub.com website you agree to our use of cookies as described in our cookie policy.

Cookies are small text files which are downloaded to your computer, tablet or mobile phone when you visit a website or application. The website or application may retrieve these cookies from your web browser (eg Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome) each time you visit, so they can recognise you, remember your preferences and provide you with a more secure online experience.

Generally, cookies are very useful and are a common method used by almost every website you visit because they help to make your online experience as smooth as possible. For security reasons, many websites will not function at all without the use of cookies (or other similar technologies, such as “web beacons” or “tags”).

Cookies generally do not hold any information to identify an individual person but are instead used to identify a browser on an individual machine.

Cookies can be referred to as session cookies or persistent cookies, depending on how long they are used:

Session cookies only last for your online session and disappear from your computer or device when you close your browser.

Persistent cookies stay on your computer or device after the browser has been closed and last for the period of time specified in the cookie. These persistent cookies may be checked each time you visit the site where the cookie was generated or, in the case of third-party cookies, from another site that also uses the same service.

Required cookies

We use a set of cookies which are critical to the functionality of the Sites. They are used to keep a user logged in to the site and to remember previous searches should the user return to a Site. These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used to identify you, and they do not monitor or remember where you have been on the internet.

Functional cookies

These cookies allow us to provide you with a better online experience when you use our website. They do not gather or store any information which would allow us to identify you personally.

Marketing cookies

Marketing cookies help us to understand how our customers use our site, so we can keep our services relevant, easy to use and up to date. For example, we can see which services are most popular, identify when and where errors occur, and test different versions of a page in order to provide an improved online experience.

Sometimes, the services we use to collect this information may be operated by other companies on our behalf. They may use similar technologies to cookies, known as “web beacons” or “tags”. These are anonymous and, as they are only used for statistical purposes, they do not contain or collect any information that identifies you.

So that we can offer you the best possible online experience, new services using cookies may be added to our site from time to time. We aim to keep the cookies information provided here as accurate as possible and use all reasonable efforts to review and update the details.

Although we audit the types of cookies that are used on our Sites, it is possible that the services we use may make changes to their cookie names and purposes. Some services, particularly social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, change their cookies regularly. Although we always aim to show you up-to-date information, we may not be able to reflect these changes in our policy straight away.

To make full use of the features and services we offer at FindMyPub.com, your computer, tablet or mobile phone will need to accept cookies, as we can only provide you with certain features of this website by using them. Although we only set a few cookies directly, we also make use of some services which set their own cookies. We believe it is important to be clear about any cookies that are being set, and why, so we have provided the tables below to explain this to you.

You will not necessarily see all of the cookies referenced below stored on your machine after visiting our site. Some will depend on how you got here and the features and products that you looked at during your visit.
