By accessing and using the keypoint-uk.co.uk website you indicate that you accept keypoint-uk.co.uk use of cookies. keypoint-uk.co.uk is henceforth known as keypoint-uk.co.uk for the purposes of this cookie policy.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored on your computer or device. Almost all websites use cookies and they have several different functions. The main purposes for cookies are to:

  1. Allow the site to function correctly and to help keep it secure.
  2. Make the site easier to use by remembering information that you’ve entered, to recognise you as a site user and to personalise your visit.
  3. Collect basic information about the way you have used the site.

The cookies may also allow keypoint-uk.co.uk to record additional information on the web pages you have visited and the contents of those web pages, any information you input, your referring URL or IP address, your time of visit and related session information, your requested page, web browser type, USR agent, status of request (successful reply), cookies, number of bytes in the response, and query string and any information or technical detail your browser is sending to us.

keypoint-uk.co.uk uses this information to better understand website usage in the aggregate so that we know what areas of our website users prefer. This information is stored in log files and is used for statistical reporting and in limited circumstances to prevent fraudulent claims.

How do we use them?

We use two classifications of cookies:

  • Cookies that are defined as “strictly necessary” are required to help keep data safe. They allow you to move between different pages on our site. They also help to keep your details secure
  • Cookies that are defined as “not strictly necessary”. This type of cookie helps us improve the performance of our site. They tell us how pages are used, which ones are commonly viewed and help us piece together a full picture of a typical customer journey through the site. They also tell us if any errors occur.

There are three types of cookies on our websites which fall under the two classifications:
