Our Use of Cookies and Tracking

Cookies

Like many other websites, Cole AD’s website uses cookies. ‘Cookies’ are small pieces of information sent by a web server to your browser and stored on your hard drive. They allow that website to recognise you when you visit. They are typically used to collect statistical data about your browsing actions and patterns and do not identify you as an individual.

We have purposely designed our website in such a way that we have no need to use any first party cookies (however, third party cookies are used) to ensure you have an ideal browsing experience.

Google Analytics

How we secure collected information

We use all measures reasonably necessary to secure all data. We follow generally accepted industry standard techniques to protect our stored data.
