Privacy Policy

We will not use any personal information obtained via this website for any purpose other than that stated when the information is gathered. No personal information will be given to any third parties without customers explicit permission to do so.

This site, like many others, uses small files called cookies to help us customise your experience. Find out more about cookies and how you can control them.

This page contains information on what ‘cookies’ are, the cookies used by Envision Mapping Limited’s website, how to switch cookies off in your browser, how to specifically switch off advertising cookies, and some useful links for further reading on the subject. If it does not provide the information you were looking for, or you have any further questions about the use of cookies on the Guardian’s website, please email us.

What are ‘cookies’?

‘Cookies’ are small text files that are stored by the browser (for example, Internet Explorer or Safari) on your computer or mobile phone. They allow websites to store things like user preferences. You can think of cookies as providing a ‘memory’ for the website, so that it can recognise you when you come back and respond appropriately.

How does Envision’s website use cookies?

A visit to a page on Envision’s website may generate the following types of cookie:

  • Site performance cookies
  • Anonymous analytics cookies
  • Registration cookies

Site performance cookies

This type of cookie remembers your preferences for tools found on Envision’s website, so you don’t have to re-set them each time you visit.

Anonymous analytics cookies:

Every time someone visits our website, software provided by another organisation generates an ‘anonymous analytics cookie’.
These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before.
Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies and, if you don’t, we generate new ones.
This allows us to track how many individual users we have, and how often they visit the site.
We cannot use these cookies to identify individuals. We use them to gather statistics, for example, the number of visits to a page. If you are logged in, we will also know the details you gave to us for this, such as your username and email address.

 How do I turn cookies off?

It is usually possible to stop your browser accepting cookies, or to stop it accepting cookies from a particular website. However, we cannot tell if you are signed in without using cookies, so you would not be able to post comments.
All modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. You can usually find these settings in the ‘options’ or ‘preferences’ menu of your browser. To understand these settings, you can use the ‘Help’ option in your browser for more details.
