COOKIE POLICY

When you visit the Communisis Limited Corporate Website via the internet, in order to assist you with your web browsing experience, especially when revisiting our website, the site will sometimes place a small amount of information on your device such as your computer, laptop, tablet or mobile phone.

These include small files that are known as ‘Cookies’. They cannot be used to identify you personally. These pieces of information are used to improve your web browsing experience by, for example:

  • enabling a service to recognise your device, so that you do not have to give the same information several times during one task or browsing sessions.
  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password, so that you do not need to do it for every web page that you visit.
  • analysing anonymous data to help us understand how people interact with the website, so that we can make improvements and to assist us in developing the website in an informed way for our online users.

Our Cookies Banner Provider is One Trust.
