Cookies are a standard method of registering user preferences when people use websites, to ensure a better and more personalised experience. These preferences are stored in a file on your computer's hard disk drive. For example, a cookie would contain your preferred country of residence so we do not have to ask you this question each time you visit.
We also use ‘analytical’ cookies. These allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the site when they’re using it. This helps us improve the way our website works, for example by making sure users find what they need easily.
Our website uses both persistent and session cookies. Persistent cookies are cookies that stay on your computer permanently until you "manually" delete them. Session cookies delete themselves automatically when you leave a website and go to another one or shut down your browser.
For more information about cookies, including how to enable cookies, change your browser settings and find and delete cookies on your hard drive, please refer to your web browser's help menus or visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
Internet Protocol (IP) Address
We may collect your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to help administer the Site. An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. This information does not contain any personally identifiable information about you. Your IP address is also used to help identify you during a particular session and to gather broad demographic data.
If we wish to use information for any additional purpose we shall notify you of this at the time that you provide that information prior to such use commencing.
With respect to non-personally identifiable information, we may use this data to improve the Site and to send you information that may be of interest to you. We may also share this information with others, such as advertisers interested in advertising on the Site, in aggregate, anonymous form, which means that the information will not contain any personally identifiable information about you or any other person. This information may also be used to evaluate what portions of the Site are more popular than others, determine where visitors came from, where visitors go, how long visitors stay on a particular page, or use of the Site in general.
Chivas may share your personally identifiable information with business partners that we believe may provide offers that may be of interest to you. In certain instances you will have an opportunity to limit this sharing at the time the information is collected. You also may limit or stop this sharing at any time by following the instructions in Choice/Opt-out below.
