10. How we Use Cookies

A ‘Cookie’ is a small text file that is stored by the browser on your computer, tablet or mobile phone. Websites are able to read and write these files, allowing them store things such as personalisation details or user preferences. By providing this “memory” for the website, they enable it to recognise a user and respond appropriately. TASK PR Limited may use ‘Cookies’ to receive and store certain details whenever a user interacts with us.  Once you agree by clicking the Accept box on the website, the file is added, and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences such as identifying your computer’s previous visits to a website, ascertaining the most popular features of a website or enabling an organisation to present specific information to you.

No information about you is stored in the session cookie and it is deleted automatically as soon as you close the browser window to leave the site. No other forms of cookies are used, nor do we place any code on your computer.

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of our website.   

We use Cookies to ensure that we give you the best experience as you access the content on our site and through social media. In that way we can track visits and tailor content for you.
