What is a Cookie?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are automatically downloaded to your computer or device when you visit a website. Cookies send data back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or share data with another website that recognizes that cookie. For example, cookies enable us to identify your device, secure your access to GEMPL and our sites generally, and even help us know if someone attempts to access your account from a different device.
Cookies can do other relevant jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. They can also help to ensure that the advertisements you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
For further information on cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your device and how to manage and delete them, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org .

Categories of Use
When does GEMPL place cookies?
These cookies allow our website to remember choices you make and provide enhanced, more personal features.
What types of cookies does GEMPL use?
- Session Cookies: Session cookies enable the website you are visiting to keep track of your movement from page to page so you don't get asked for the same information you've already given to the site. Cookies allow you to proceed through many pages of a site quickly and easily without having to authenticate or reprocess each new area you visit. These only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).
- Analytical/Customization cookies: These cookies collect information about how visitors use and interact with our Services, for instance which pages they go to most often. These cookies also enable us to personalise content and remember your preferences (e.g., your choice of language, country, or region). These cookies help us improve the way our websites work and provide a better, personalised user experience.
- Advertising cookies: These cookies record your visit to our websites, the pages you have visited, and the links you have clicked. They gather information about your browsing habits and remember that you have visited a website. We (and third-party advertising platforms or networks) may use this information to make our websites, content, and advertisements displayed on them more relevant to your interests (this is sometimes called "behavioural" or "targeted" advertising). These types of cookies are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as to help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns.
To find out more about interest-based ads and your choices, visit these sites: Digital Advertising Alliance, the Network Advertising Initiative, and the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) Europe.
Some of the cookies we commonly use are listed in our cookies chart below. Thislist is not exhaustive, but it is intended to illustrate primary reasons for certain types of cookies set by GEMPL and third parties on our websites. Third parties may also set certain cookies on your device when you use our Services. In some cases, the third party has been hired to provide certain services on GEMPL’s behalf (e.g., website analytics). In other cases, our websites contain content or ads from third parties (e.g., videos, news content, or ads delivered by other ad networks). When your browser connects to those third parties' web servers to retrieve content, those third parties may set and use their own cookies on your device.
How are cookies used for online analytics purposes?
We may use third-party web analytics services on our Services, such as those of Google Analytics. These service providers use the sort of technology described in the Automatically-Collected Information section above to help us analyse how users use the Services, including by noting the third-party website from which you arrive. The information collected by the technology will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers, who use the information to evaluate your use of the Services. We also use Google Analytics for certain purposes related to online marketing, as described in the following section.
How are cookies used for advertising purposes?
Cookies and other ad technology such as beacons, pixels, and tags help us serve relevant ads to you more effectively. They also help us provide aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for advertisers, understand and improve our service, and know when content has been shown to you.
We do not serve third party advertisements to you while using greaveselectricmobility.com. However, we do work with website analytics and advertising partners, including Google Display Network, Facebook, etc. to deliver GEMPL advertisements on third party publisher websites - these partners may set cookies on your computer's web browser. These cookies allow our partners to recognize your computer so that the ad server can show you GEMPL advertisements elsewhere on the Internet, and so that our analytics software can measure your engagement and interactions while using greaveselectricmobility.com. In this way, ad servers may compile anonymous, de-identified information about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw our advertisements, whether or not you interacted with our advertisements, and actions performed on subsequent visits to greaveselectricmobility.com . This information allows an ad network to deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you, and it allows GEMPL to optimise the performance of our advertising campaigns and the usability of our website. In other words, we use analytics data in concert with data about our online ads that have been shown using the Google Display Network, Facebook for Advertisers, or other online advertising networks. By doing so, we can understand how anonymous users interacted with our website after seeing our ads.
What third-party cookies does GEMPL use?
We used trusted partners like Google Display Network, Google Maps, Facebook Ad Network, Google DoubleClick, Twitter and similar platforms to help us service advertising by placing cookies on your device. We also pull through content from social networks into our own pages, such as embedded Twitter feeds. The social networks, such as Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Instagram, Google, etc. may themselves also put cookies on your machine. For example, our website also utilises the Facebook Like button functionality to share content. If a user clicks the Like button and logs into Facebook via our website, Facebook will leave a cookie on the users' computer. This is the same process as if the user logs into Facebook directly, or clicks Like on any other website.
We also use Google Analytics on our Services to help us analyse how our Services are used. Google Analytics uses performance cookies to track customer’s interactions. For example, by using cookies, Google can tell us which pages our users view, which are most popular, what time of day our websites are visited, whether visitors have been to our websites before, what website referred the visitor to our websites, and other similar information. All of this information is anonymized.
We also use Google maps services on our website, through which the location of the users are identified to allow users to avail various services offered by us.
We have little control over these 'third party' cookies, so we suggest that you check the respective privacy policies for these external services to help you understand what data these organisations hold about you and what they do with it.

Our use of Web Beacons
We may also use electronic images known as web beacons on our Services - sometimes called "clear GIFs", "single-pixel GIFs", or "web bugs". Web beacons are used to deliver cookies on our Services, count clicks/users/visitors, and deliver co branded content or services. We may include web beacons in our promotional e-mail messages or other to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.
GEMPL Services may also contain web beacons from third parties to help us compile aggregated statistics regarding the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns or other website operations. These web beacons may allow the third parties to set or read cookies on your device.
How can you control cookies?
Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their settings preferences. However, If you choose to turn off these cookies you will still see advertising on the internet but it may not be tailored to your interests. It does not mean that you won't be served any advertisements whilst you are online. Whilst many companies involved in using advertising cookies and serving online behavioural advertising appear at the above link, not all do. Therefore, even if you choose to turn off cookies used by all of the companies listed, you may still receive some advertising cookies and some tailored advertisements from other companies.

If you do not allow certain cookies to be installed, the website may not be accessible to you and/or the performance, features, or services of the website may be compromised.
