TYPES OF COOKIES AND THEIR FUNCTIONS


P2 Cookies

The P2 cookies used are designed simply to make our website work properly for you, by:

• Allowing you to add comments to our site

_ga is a Google Analytics Cookie used to distinguish users and has an expiration of 2-years.

Third Party Function Cookies

• Videos (powered by YouTube and Vimeo)
• Presentation Slides (powered by SlideShare)
• Google Maps
• Other embedded content

Disabling any of these cookies will likely prevent these functions working within our site.

Social Media Cookies
To provide you with the ability to use functions such as "Like", or to share our content on social media systems such as Facebook and Twitter we have included sharing buttons on our site. These services use their own cookies. These cookies are set by:

• LinkedIn
• Facebook
• Twitter
• Google Plus

The privacy implications of these services vary from service to service and will be dependent on the privacy settings you have chosen on these networks specifically. Please check with the provider if you are unsure what these are.

Site Improvement Cookies
From time to time we may test new designs or site features on our site. The most common form of testing is done by showing different users slightly different versions of our website and anonymously monitoring how visitors respond to these different versions. The sole aim of this is to provide you with a better experience.

Anonymous Visitor Statistics Cookies
We use cookies to compile visitor statistics which provide information such as how many people have visited our site, what device they used (Windows PC, Mac, Android, iOS), the pages they look at and how much time they spend on the site. This information helps us to continuously improve our website and ensure it is working properly. Device statistics are very helpful should the site encounter problems related to certain systems by allowing us to track down the likely causes quickly. Our site uses the following statistics gathering cookies:

• Google Analytics
• MailChimp

Advertising and Marketing Cookies
Many companies use cookies for online advertising and marketing purposes, indeed you may have noticed that sometimes after visiting a site you see an increased number of adverts for products you have previously been looking at on other sites.

At present P2 Games do not use Advertising Cookies of any kind on their Websites.

TURNING OFF COOKIES

We understand that some users find the concept of Cookies confusing and maybe even worrying. Some users may be concerned that cookies are linked to "Spyware". However, the cookies used by us are very common and in widespread use by many well-known and trusted companies and really are nothing to worry about.

If you are worried about "Spyware" we would recommend you install anti-spyware software rather than switching off cookies. Anti-spyware software will automatically target and delete invasive cookies whilst leaving the bone fide ones there to help you enjoy your web experience.

If you wish to switch off cookies you can usually do this by going into your browser settings and electing to not accept cookies. However switching off cookies will lead to a much reduced web experience with less functionality across most websites you visit.

If you would like to find out more about the cookies we use or still have concerns please contact our Customer Care Team at [email protected]
