PRIVACY POLICY

We use cookies across our website to improve the performance and enhance your user experience. This policy explains how we do that.

WHAT ARE COOKIES?

Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit. Web beacons or other similar files can also do the same thing. We use the term “cookies” in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way. There are many functions cookies serve. For example, they can help us to remember your username and preferences, analyse how well our website is performing, or even allow us to recommend content we believe will be most relevant to you. Certain cookies contain personal information – for example, if you click to “remember me” when logging in, a cookie will store your username. Most cookies won’t collect information that identifies you, and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our websites, or a user’s general location.

WHAT SORT OF COOKIES DOES DISCOVER GRAND PRIX USE?

Generally, our cookies perform up to four different functions:

ESSENTIAL COOKIES

Some cookies are essential for the operation of our website. For example, some cookies allow us to identify subscribers and ensure they can access the subscription only pages. If a subscriber opts to disable these cookies, the user will not be able to access all of the content that a subscription entitles them to.

PERFORMANCE COOKIES

We utilise other cookies to analyse how our visitors use our websites and to monitor website performance. This allows us to provide a high quality experience by customising our offering and quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise. For example, we might use performance cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages. We might also use these cookies to highlight articles or site services that we think will be of interest to you based on your usage of the website.

FUNCTIONALITY COOKIES

We use functionality cookies to allow us to remember your preferences. For example, cookies save you the trouble of typing in your username every time you access the site, and recall your customisation preferences, such as which products and travel options you want to see when you log in. We also use functionality cookies to provide you with enhanced services such as allowing you to comment on a blog.

BEHAVIOURALLY TARGETED ADVERTISING COOKIES

When you click on a Discover Grand Prix advert or look at our website, you might then see advertisements from Discover Grand Prix on other sites that you visit. Discover Grand Prix does not and will not ever contain any advertising on its own site though and we do not knowingly pass on any information about users.

DOES ANYONE ELSE USE COOKIES ON DISCOVER GRAND PRIX?

Advertisers sometimes use their own cookies to provide you with targeted advertising. For example, advertisers may use a profile they have built on sites that you have previously visited to present you with more relevant advertisements. If you are based in the European Union and would like to learn more about how advertisers use these types of cookies or to choose not to receive them, please visit www.youronlinechoices.eu. If you are based in the United States and would like to learn more, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/. We also use or allow third parties to serve cookies that fall into the four categories above. For example, like many companies, we use Google Analytics to help us monitor our website traffic. We may also from time to time use third party cookies to help us with market research, revenue tracking, improving site functionality and monitoring compliance with our terms and conditions and copyright policy.

CAN A WEBSITE USER BLOCK COOKIES?

As we’ve explained above, cookies help you to get the most out of our website. The first time you access our website you should see seen an overlay at the footer, which explained that by continuing to access our site, you are consenting to our use of cookies. However, if you do wish to disable our cookies then please follow the instructions on our “How to Manage Cookies” page. Please remember that if you do choose to disable cookies, you may find that certain sections of our website do not work properly.
