Privacy and Cookies policy
Information management and communication technologies play a fundamental role in the activities of Jadu.
Your privacy is important to us
Providing you with anonymous access
You can access our website's homepage and browse our sites without disclosing your personal data. You are invited to register so that you may benefit from added value content which may help you do business with Jadu, browse content and view information relevant to our products and services.
All the added value content held on this website is freely available to all site visitors. Personal data about site members is held in the strictest confidence. Jadu does not make this information available to any other party.
The services and links of our corporate websites
Jadu corporate websites enable you to communicate with other visitors or to post information to be accessed by others by way of wikis, forums and blogs. When you do so, other visitors may collect your data. However, this does NOT apply to Jadu.net or any of the respective domains that are managed and controlled by Jadu.
Our websites do not include links to third party web service providers, but contain links to other websites. Jadu is in no way responsible for the content of these sites or the data that site visitors submit to these sites as a result of following any links from Jadu websites.
- Technical administration of the website - handling session information to allow the site to function correctly.
- Customer administration - to enable member's privileges and to make the browsing experience personalised and convenient.
As standard, two cookies are set on Jadu's websites:
- TestCookie - to determine whether a user's browser accepts cookie and can therefore log in.
- PHPSESSID - used to store the session id of a user. This is required to determine whether a user is logged in to the web site. Session data is also stored when a user is filling in a form however the data is stored on the server and not in the cookie.
Both of these cookies are required for Jadu sites to operate and do not contain personal data. Jadu therefore consider these cookies necessary in order to provide a service to the user as part of which they have requested by using the web site. These cookies are set to expire as soon as a user quits their browser.
We also use Google Analytics to measure site usage and build a better user experience.
Google Analytics sets the following Cookies:
A persistent cookie - remains on a computer, unless it expires or the cookie cache is cleared. It tracks visitors. Metrics associated with the Google __utma cookie include: first visit (unique visit), last visit (returning visit). This also includes Days and Visits to purchase calculations which afford ecommerce websites with data intelligence around purchasing sales funnels.
__utmb Cookie & __utmc Cookies
These cookies work in tandem to calculate visit length. Google __utmb cookie demarks the exact arrival time, then Google __utmc registers the precise exit time of the user.
Because __utmb counts entrance visits, it is a session cookie, and expires at the end of the session, e.g. when the user leaves the page. A timestamp of 30 minutes must pass before Google cookie __utmc expires. Given__utmc cannot tell if a browser or website session ends. Therefore, if no new page view is recorded in 30 minutes the cookie is expired.
This is a standard 'grace period' in web analytics. Ominture and WebTrends among many others follow the same procedure.
Cookie __utmz monitors the HTTP Referrer and notes where a visitor arrived from, with the referrer siloed into type (Search engine (organic or cpc), direct, social and unaccounted). From the HTTP Referrer the __utmz Cookie also registers, what keyword generated the visit plus geolocation data.
This cookie lasts six months. In tracking terms this Cookie is perhaps the most important as it will tell you about your traffic and help with conversion information such as what source / medium / keyword to attribute for a Goal Conversion.
Google __utmv Cookie lasts "forever". It is a persistant cookie. It is used for segmentation, data experimentation and the __utmv works hand in hand with the __utmz cookie to improve cookie targeting capabilities.
