LIW Cookies Notice

What is a cookie?

A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor’s computer or other internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A “web beacon,” also known as an internet tag, pixel tag or clear GIF, links web pages to web servers and their cookies and may be used to transmit information collected through cookies back to a web server.

Leading Initiatives Worldwide Limited trading as LIW3 uses cookies, web beacons (including pixels and tags) and similar technologies on our website that collect certain information about your use of the website by automated means.

We use these automated technologies to collect information about your equipment, browsing actions and usage patterns. The information we obtain in this manner includes IP address and other identifiers associated with your devices, types of devices connected to our website, device characteristics (such as operating system), language preferences, referring/exit pages, navigation paths, access times, browser preferences and characteristics, installed plugins, local time zones, local storage preferences, clickstream data and other information about your online activities.

We use both first-party cookies (served directly by our website domain) and third-party cookies (served by a third-party website when you visit our website, such as Google Analytics or our cloud hosting provider). Some of these cookies are session cookies (which are automatically deleted when you close your browser) and others are persistent cookies (which remain on your computer or other internet-connected device for a period of time after you end your browsing session, unless you delete them).

We do not make any decisions that affect your legal rights based on our use of your cookies.

How do we classify cookies on our website?

We have classified the cookies that we use on our website into three types:

  • Essential and Functional Cookies;
  • Internal Analytics Cookies; and
  • Marketing Cookies.

 

Essential and Functional Cookies

We use cookies on our website that are necessary for us to provide our products and services that may be available from our website. This includes essential cookies (such as those used to authenticate you to our website and identify you after you have logged in), functional cookies (such as those that remember what you added to your sign up page, registration or the language preference you selected), and user-centric security cookies used to increase the security of the products and services we provide to you (such as to detect authentication abuses). Given the necessary functionality of these cookies, they typically cannot be disabled if you wish to access and use our website.

 

The Essential and Functional Cookies on our website are:

    Internal Analytics Cookies

    We use internal analytics cookies to collect information on how users navigate and use our website, such as how the users traverse our website, the pages they view, how long they stay on a page and whether the page is displayed correctly or whether errors occur. This analysis is used solely by us and our contractors on our behalf to better understand the use of our website so that we can improve its performance and our users’ experience.  We hold this information for up to 2 years. In almost all cases this information is used in an aggregated form from which it is extremely difficult to identify any particular device, and by itself, it does not identify an individual’s personal identity. This data is not used to target marketing material to any user, whether from LIW3 any third party. These cookies are provided by third-party analytics providers, including Google Analytics.
