These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • enabling a service to recognise your device so you don't have to give the same information several times during one task
  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don't need to do it for every web page requested
  • measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there's enough capacity to ensure they are fast
  • analysing data to help us understand how you use our services so we can improve them

Email Usage & Tracking

The new EU Cookie Law which will be in effect on the 26th May 2012 currently does not focus on the type of tracking used within emails based on advice from the ICO and DMA. Email open tracking uses a one pixel by one pixel clear GIF, which is stored as a temporary file on the user’s computer. Information from the DMA suggests ‘that this is very different than the cookies used in website to track individuals online:

Once images including open tracking GIFs are downloaded by the consumer, there is no way for the marketer to read them back.

Open tracking GIFs return information in the same way that web pages return information about the user’s computer because that is how the internet was designed.

Open tracking is associated with an email address and is therefore device independent.’

[May 2012 – Direct Marketing Association]

As an organisation we like to be clear and transparent with our customers. To this end, any customer opting-in (providing an email address) are giving email permission, open tracking and permission for other data use appropriate to our email communications. A link to our privacy policy and a unsubscribe facility will always be included in our emails giving our customers the opportunity to opt-out at any time.
