FraudsWatch Cookie Policy

WorldPay (UK) Limited, WorldPay Limited, WorldPay AP Limited and any of their group companies (together “WorldPay” or “we” or “our”) use “cookies” and other technologies when you use our websites, mobile sites, or mobile apps and you can find out more about cookies and how to control them.

Your consent

By using our websites, mobile sites and mobile apps you accept the use of cookies in accordance with this cookie policy or any alternate policy provided by the specific site or app. This policy applies additional to any other Terms of Use or contract provision for the particular FraudsWatch service being used. If you do not accept the use of cookies, please disable them as explained below or in any other notice provided to you when you visit a Worldpay website or download a FraudsWatch app.

What is a cookie?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device.

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between website pages efficiently, remembering your preferences and generally improve user experience. Cookies are widely used on the internet and allow a website/portal to recognise a user’s device, without uniquely identifying the individual person using the computer. These technologies help to make it easier for you to log on and use the site, provide feedback to us as to which parts of the website you visit, so we can assess the effectiveness of the site and provide a better user experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.

For more information about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage, block and delete them, see http://www.allaboutcookies.org. You may also be able to configure your browser not to accept cookies, although please bear in mind that this may affect your ability to use the services we provide.

Is there more than one flavour?

There are different types of cookies and they are usually split into the following categories, but note that not all these types will be used on every website you visit and some cookies fit into multiple categories:

‘strictly necessary’ cookies

These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, services you have asked for, like shopping baskets or e-billing, cannot be provided. So, basically, these cookies enable services you have specifically asked for.

‘performance’ cookies

These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website. For instance, which pages visitors go to most often and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that uniquely identifies a visitor. All information that these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works. So, basically, these cookies collect anonymous information on the website pages you visited.

‘functionality’ cookies

These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.  So, basically, these cookies remember choices you make to improve your user experience.

‘targeting’ cookies

These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation. So, basically, these cookies collect information about your browsing habits in order to make advertising relevant to you and your interests.

How to control and delete cookies through your browser

The ability to disable or delete cookies can also be carried out by changing your browser’s settings. In order to do this, follow the instructions provided by your browser (usually found in the ‘Help’, ‘Edit’ or ‘Tools’ facility). Some pages may not work if you completely disable all cookies, but many third party cookies can be safely blocked.  If you do switch off cookies at a browser level, your device won’t be able to accept cookies from any website. This means you will struggle to access the secure area of any website you use and you won’t enjoy the best browsing experience when you are online.

What cookies do we provide on www.FraudsWatch.com?

In addition to the first party cookies referred to above, third party cookies are served by Optimizely from the log3.optimizely.com domain for the purpose of comparing two versions of the same website page, allowing Worldpay the opportunity to create better websites. Further information about Optimizely’s use of user data is available in their privacy policy at www.optimizely.com/privacy. Details on how to opt out of all Optimizely tracking are available at www.optimizely.com/opt_out.Third party ‘Optimizely’ cookies

A cookie is a small piece of text sent to your browser by a website you visit. It helps the website to remember information about your visit, like your preferred language and other settings. That can make your next visit easier and the site more useful to you. Cookies play an important role. Without them, using the web would be a much more frustrating experience.

We use cookies for many purposes. We use them, for example, to remember your safe search preferences, to make the ads you see more relevant to you, to count how many visitors we receive to a page, to help you sign up for our services and to protect your data.

Cookies

To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this too.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.

How do we use cookies?

[Adjust this part of the page according to your needs.

Explain which cookies you use in plain, jargon-free language. In particular:

  • their purpose and the reason why they are being used, (e.g. to remember users’ actions, to identify the user, for online behavioural advertising)
  • if they are essential for the website or a given functionality to work or if they aim to enhance the performance of the website
  • the types of cookies used (e.g. session or permanent, first or third-party)
  • who controls/accesses the cookie-related information (website or third party)
  • that the cookie will not be used for any purpose other than the one stated
  • how consent can be withdrawn.

You can use as example the top level “cookie notice” of the Commission homepage.

If your site does not use any cookies, just declare it (e.g. The Information Providers Guide site does not use any cookies). If your site uses the same cookies as the Commission homepage, you can just link to the top level cookie notice.]

How to control cookies

You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – for details, see aboutcookies.org. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work.

You can easily accept or reject the cookies on this site by choosing one of the following links: I accept cookies / I refuse cookies.
