Cookies on Covea websites
This site, like many others, uses small files called "cookies" to help customise your experience. Cookies are essential for making many sites work.
If you do not consent to Covea using cookies it is possible to stop your browser accepting them, however, you may find that some aspects of the website will stop working or will work less well if you do this.
For example, we will be unable to provide you with a quote without using cookies and that would prevent you from buying a policy on line.
This page contains information on what ‘cookies’ are, the cookies used by Covea, how to switch cookies off in your browser if you do not consent to Covea using cookies and some useful links for further information.
What are ‘cookies’?
‘Cookies’ are small text files that are stored by the browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome or Safari) on your computer or mobile phone. Your devices are able to read and write these files, allowing them to store things such as personalisation details or user preferences. Each web domain can only access cookies stored by that specific web domain, meaning that only Covea servers can access the cookies. Most web pages contain elements from multiple web domains. Therefore when you visit Covea, your browser may receive cookies from several sources.
A visit to a page on a Covea website may generate the following types of cookies - Site performance cookies, anonymous analytics cookies, affiliate tracking cookies and cookies to help with generating a quotation.
Site performance cookies:
Covea may generate cookies to assist with site performance, for example to choose video streaming speeds which are compatible with your browser.
Anonymous analytics cookies:
Every time a user visits our websites, web analytics software provided by a third party generates an anonymous analytics cookie. These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before. Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies, and if you do not, we generate new ones. This allows us to track how many individual unique users we have, and how often they visit the site. These cookies can not be used to identify individuals; they are used for statistical purposes only. This allows us, for example, to tell which pages are the most visited at any one time.
Affiliate tracking cookies:
Sometimes we need to know whether or not you have come from one of our affiliates, and how long it is since you have visited the site from them. In order to do this, we place a cookie on your machine when you visit Covea from an affiliate partner.
If you do not consent to Covea using cookies it is possible to stop your browser accepting them. However, you may find that some aspects of the website will stop working or work less well if you do this. For example, we cannot provide you with a quote without using cookies, so that would prevent you from buying a policy on line.
All modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. These settings will typically be found in the ‘options’ or ‘preferences’ menu of your browser and will include a setting allowing you to stop your browser from accepting cookies. In order to understand these settings please consult your browser documentation or online help files.
