For many years websites have used little text-based files called ‘cookies’ to help improve the experience of a visitor using that website. The text in a cookie contains small items of information about the visitor and their use of a website that helps with access, navigation and other activity on that site. It is particularly useful if that visitor returns to the site at a later date.

Cardinus, like thousands of other organisations, has used cookies for quite a while now and we have always been very open about it. Nothing we have ever done has compromised your privacy or security.

Cookies on the Cardinus Risk Management website do not identify you as an individual or hold any personal data about you. They are actually stored in the web browser on your machine, so when that browser loads our website again the site knows you’ve been there before and maybe some of the things you looked at. This information helps us to improve your experience with our services.

A new law now requires us to ask your permission before we use cookies and you must agree explicitly to accept the cookies each time you visit our website. One quite effective way of obtaining your permission is to automatically open a pop-up window when you arrive at the site and ask you to tick a box giving us permission to use cookies during your visit.

However, many of you have your browsers set to block pop-ups and you probably don’t want to turn that off every time you visit the Cardinus website. So if you do object to our use of cookies then you should leave the website.

We are very happy to provide you with information through other channels and the telephone is probably the quickest and easiest way to contact us. Call us on 0207 469 0200 if you have any questions about Cardinus products and services or if you wish to place an order. We look forward to hearing from you.
