There are other technologies which we deploy which track behaviour on our website. ‘Tracker Pixels’ are a means of allowing us to check whether you have viewed our content. These 'pixels' are essentially tiny, invisible images on our web pages that, once loaded, will communicate your interaction with our content. This allows Mark Allen and our partners to gauge the validity of material being presented to you.
We avail of third-party technologies across our sites. These technologies help us to understand how you use the site and the ways in which we can improve your user experience. These technologies may track certain information such as the pages you visit across our site as well as how long your visit lasts. This allows us to continue providing engaging content.
We may also use social media plugins on this site that allow you to view videos and otherwise interact with certain content. In order for these technologies to work, trusted third parties will set cookies and tracker pixels throughout our site. Once enabled, these technologies may be used to enhance your profile or to contribute to the data they hold for various purposes outlined in their respective privacy policies. We encourage our visitors to review these third parties’ policies in advance of granting consent to deployment.
For each visitor to our sites, we automatically gather certain potentially identifying information and store it. This information includes your Internet Protocol (IP) address, your browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, your operating system, date/time stamp, processor or device serial number, unique device identifier, and clickstream data. We collect this information on an individual basis and in aggregate, or combined form.
We avail of both first and third-party technologies across our site. Mark Allen takes our visitors’ right to privacy seriously in keeping with our obligations. Should you consent to the deployment of any category of optional technology, we will record your consent for a period of no longer than 6 months subject to interaction; at which point you will be prompted to refresh your consent.
These cookies are necessary for the website to function. They are set for security purposes and in response to actions made by you which amount to a service request such as logging in to our platform or as you fill out forms on our site. You have the option to disable these cookies via your browser settings, but should you do so, certain aspects of our site will no longer function.
These cookies allow use to determine the number of visits to our site as well as where that traffic originates. This helps us understand which pages are the most popular as well as how it is that you come to view them. For example, when enabled, we use Google Analytics for aggregated, anonymized website traffic analysis. In order to track your session usage, Google drops a cookie (_ga) with a randomly-generated ClientID in your browser. This ID is anonymized and contains no identifiable information. We also send Google your masked IP Address. We use Google Analytics to track aggregated website behaviour, such as what pages you looked at, for how long, etc. This information is important to us for improving the user experience and determining site effectiveness.
This information will not be combined by Mark Allen for profiling purposes, however, certain third parties such as Google may use this information in aggregate form for the purposes outlined in their respective privacy notices. If you disable this category of cookie our site will still work, though its improvement over time will be hampered.
