For the website to keep track of your activities while you’re on the site, the web server sends a tiny file called a cookie to your computer, mobile phone, or tablet (referred to as “device” in this policy). Using the cookie, we can learn about how you use our Services, as well as information about your device, such as its IP address and browser type, as well as your general geographic location. Data processors may also collect your name and email address if you’ve signed up for any of the Services or are a subscriber, which may be used for registered user or subscriber verification.

Cookies are little files that are stored on your computer or mobile device and allow us to better understand your needs and interests. Cookies can help us better understand your usage of our Services and offer you a more enjoyable experience.


Session cookies are temporary cookies that are erased from your computer when you close your browser after viewing a page.

When we (or a third party) need to identify you during a subsequent browsing session, we utilize persistent cookies, which remain on your device after the browser has closed.

The website you’re viewing places first-party cookies on your computer and  Third-party cookies are cookies set by other organizations that are utilized in our services. To better understand how our websites are being used, we employ external analytics services, such as Google Analytics, to collect information about how visitors interact with our sites. We use third-party cookies to allow you to share our content with your friends and networks, which may affect the content and messages you see on other websites you visit.


Among the many purposes for which Top5ones and our trusted partners utilize cookies in conjunction with other data is to:

1. Essential or ‘Strictly Necessary’ Cookies

In order for our Services to function properly, we must use these cookies. Unless certain cookies are enabled, elements of our websites will not work. Because they only remember your choices for the current visit and don’t follow your previous web activity, these cookies cannot be used to acquire personally identifiable information about you in the future. When you shut your browser, these cookies are deleted from your computer.

2. Functional Cookies

Our Services would not function without the use of functional cookies. These cookies are used to remember your choices on our websites and to enhance and personalize the options available to you. It’s impossible for us to identify you based on the information gathered by these cookies. In order to provide advertising, functional cookies do not monitor your browsing habits or gather information that may be used to sell your personal information. Third-party service providers may also have the ability to implement their own privacy policies on our site.

3. Analytical Performance and Measurement Cookies

Cookies that track the performance of our Services, such as the number of page views and unique visitors, are known as analytic performance cookies and are used for this purpose. Third-party companies can create and manage web analytics services. We may analyze patterns of user behavior based on the data collected by these cookies, and we utilize that data to either improve the user experience or identify portions of the website that may need repair. No personal information like name or email address is included in the data, which is just used to compile aggregate statistics on the population.

4. Targeting or ‘Behavioural Advertising’ Cookies

Our trusted third-party service providers may put cookies on your device to remember that you have visited a website and use that information to present you with personalized content or advertising. Based on a user’s surfing history, this type of advertising is known as online behavioral advertising (OBA). If you’ve ever visited a website, your browsing history may be used to infer facts about you (such as your age or gender, for example), and this information can be used to personalize your online experience with advertisements. A lack of these cookies might make information and adverts less tailored to your interests. See How can users control or opt-out of cookies? for additional information about OBA and how to opt out of these OBA cookies

5. Social Media Cookies

The social media services we’ve added to the site set these cookies when you share our material with your friends and networks, or engage with our content on or through a social site like Facebook or Twitter. They are able to keep track of your browsing history and construct a profile of your interests across different websites. You may see different information and messages on other websites because of this.


Among the many purposes for which Top5ones and our trusted partners utilize cookies in conjunction with other data is to:

1. Essential and Functional Cookies

Certain online features are made possible by certain cookies, such as:

  • to offer you personalized content and experiences or to remember the last page you viewed on our Services;
  •  recognizing recurring users, registrants, and subscribers so that they can be provided with a personalized version of the site
  • maintaining your settings and authenticating your identity while you are logged in to our services, such as, eliminating the need for returning users to enter their login details, commenting on our sites, operating a shopping trolley, and supporting security measures and identifying possible fraudulent or abusive activities.

In the event that you are against the usage of cookies that are both important and useful, please check this page: What options do users have for controlling or removing cookies?

2. Analytical Performance and Measurement Cookies

We use these cookies to measure users’ behaviour to better develop our Services.  By using analytics services provided by third parties such as Google Analytics and ComScore, we can analyse and measure which pages are viewed and how long for and which links are followed, and we can use this information to provide more content which is of interest.  The data collected will generally be aggregated to provide trends and usage patterns for business analysis, site/platform improvement and performance metrics and to inform our advertising and marketing strategies. Our cookies, or the resulting analysis, can also be shared with our business partners. We also receive similar information about visitors to the sites of our group companies and other partners. 

If you object to the use of analytical performance and measurement cookies please see How can users manage or opt out of cookies?

3. Social Media Cookies

When you use a social network sharing button on a website, cookies are also used. This action will be noted by the social network, which may then use this data about your visit to better target advertisements to you in the future. We also use cookies to promote our own products and services on social media. On our websites, for example, we use a pixel that allows Facebook to set cookies on web browsers. Visitors who return to our site using Facebook can be identified as part of a group of our site visitors by Facebook and sent with marketing communications from us on our behalf.

Third-party firms’ privacy rules will dictate the sorts of cookies they employ and how they utilize the information they create. To opt out of social media cookies, go to the following page. What options do users have for controlling or removing cookies?

4. Other Third Party Cookies

Cookies that are not affiliated with Top5ones may be found on some of our websites. Third-party service providers, such as YouTube, may place their own cookies on your computer or mobile device when you view their content integrated on another website. Third-party cookies are not within the control of Top5ones since cookies can only be accessible by the party that originally placed them, and Top5ones does not have access to these cookies. More information about these cookies may be found on the respective third-party websites.

Several of our websites use Adobe Flash Player to offer video and gaming content to visitors. For identical reasons, Adobe’s Flash Player stores preferences and tracks users using its own cookies, which you can’t control in your browser’s settings. Websites that use Flash Cookies must save all their data in a single cookie, which differs from how cookies function in web browsers. You can decide how much data, if any, is saved in the cookie, but you can’t control what kind of information is permitted to be stored. The website storage options page on the Adobe website lets you control which websites can store information in Flash cookies on your device.

Additionally, we use web beacons to monitor the performance of our marketing initiatives. That’s why we’re able to see what pages on our websites you’ve visited when you open an email from us. By interacting with our cookies on your device, web beacons can tell us if our emails are opened and authenticate any clicks through to links or adverts that you may have clicked on in them. They allow us to find out if people who don’t read our emails want to keep getting them, and they also let us tell our advertisers how many people have actually clicked on their ads inside the email. Additionally, we may make use of this data to determine which of our emails are the most popular among our subscribers and to tailor future email communications.

If you’re concerned about web beacons, you can find out more about them by visiting this page: What options do users have for controlling or removing cookies?
