HOW DO WE USE COOKIES?

We and our service providers use cookies and similar technologies for a variety of reasons, as described below.

  • Strictly Necessary Cookies: These cookies are essential to provide you with the Services and to use some of its features, such as access to secure areas. Without these cookies, we can’t provide parts of the Services that you request, like secure login accounts and transactional pages.
  • Performance & Functionality Cookies: We use performance cookies to analyse how the Services are being accessed and used, or how the Services are performing in order to maintain, operate and continually improve the Services and provide a better overall user experience. Functionality cookies record information about choices you’ve made and allow us to customise the Services to you. When you continue to use or return to the Services, we can remember choices you make (such as login credentials, language preference, country location or other online settings) and provide the personalised or enhanced features that you select.
  • Advertising or Targeting Cookies: Such cookies allow website owners and third parties to gather information about the content you’re browsing, your visit, or your interaction with ads and our communications, and to display ads that are relevant to you and measure their effectiveness.

However, if you choose to provide us with your Personal Information, we may transfer that Information, within AAFSL, but the information will be held within the UK, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
