INDEPENDENT FRANCHISE PARTNERS, LLP COOKIE POLICY


Our website (http://www.franchisepartners.com/ (the “Website”)) uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of the Website. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse the Website and also allows us to improve it over time.

Cookies are small text files that are sent to or accessed from your web browser or your computer’s or mobile device’s hard drive. Cookies are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as provide certain information to us.

A cookie typically contains the name of the domain (internet location) from which the cookie originated, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e., when it expires), and a randomly generated unique number or similar identifier. Cookies do not by themselves personally identify you, but may be linked to other personal data that you provide to us through your interactions with us and the Website.

Cookies are typically either “session” or “persistent” cookies. A session cookie will only remain on your computer or mobile device for the duration of your session, and will expire when you either close your web browser or the relevant tab in your web browser. Persistent cookies, on the other hand, will be stored on your device for a set period of time (usually less than a year), after which time they will automatically expire. You can delete persistent cookies at any time using your web browser settings.
