Cookie Policy.

This website uses cookies to help improve your experience. For more information about what data we hold and how we use your data please email info@weareorbit.co.uk

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file that is placed in your device that helps our website remember you. For example, if you are entering your mobile phone number into a form on our site our website will remember it and automatically include it in the field – which saves your time having to type it in again. When you visit our site you’ll automatically have cookies placed on your device to help improve your browsing experience.

How do we use cookies?

We use cookies to improve your experience on our site. Examples of their use include:

  • Keeping you signed in.
  • Understanding how you use our site.
  • Showing you content that is relevant to you.

Other organisations also collect user information on our sites through cookies, tags and pixels. Tags and pixels, also known as web beacons, are similar to cookies but are collected through embedded images. For example, we use a Facebook Pixel to show you Orbit’s content on your Facebook timeline through paid advertisements. We don’t have access to your account or the information present on your social media profiles.

Using cookies and other technology allows us to analyse how our site is being used, measure the number of visitors to the site, and display advertising.

Cookies that are used by Orbit are referred to as “first-party cookies” and those that are used by our partners (ie. Facebook) are “third-party cookies”. Because of how cookies work, our website cannot access third-party cookies; nor can other organisations access the data in the cookies we use on our website.

What types of cookies do we use?

We use four types of cookies, which we describe in this section.

  • Essential – cookies that are essential to provide you with services you have requested. For example, these include the cookies that make it possible for you to stay logged into your Orbit account and use the features that your account permits. If you set your browser to block these cookies, then these functions and services will not work for you. More importantly, we won’t be able to save your preferences about cookies.

  • Performance – cookies which measure how often you visit our sites and how you use them. We use this information to get a better sense of how our users engage with our programme and to improve the content we produce, so that users have a better experience. For example, we collect information about which of our pages are most frequently visited, and by which types of users. We also use third-party cookies to help with performance, such as Google Analytics. For example, the Google Analytics cookie gives us information such as your journey between pages and whether you have downloaded anything (details of how to opt out of it are below).

  • Functionality – cookies that are used to recognise you and remember your preferences or settings when you return to our site, so that we can provide you with a more personalised experience. For example, if you are based in the United Kingdom, we will remember this and make sure that you receive the UK homepage when you visit our site, rather than pages designed for audiences in the USA or Australia. A mix of first-party and third-party cookies are used.

  • Advertising – cookies that are used to collect information about your visit to our site, the content you have viewed, the links you have followed and information about your browser, device and your IP address.
