To provide better service to you on our website, we use cookies to collect your personal data when you browse. See below for more information on what cookies are, the categories and types of cookies that exist and to view what cookies are used by Contract Scotland and any associated 3rd party.

Please read this information in conjunction with our Privacy Policy

  • What Are Cookies ?

    A cookie is a small text file that is downloaded onto ‘terminal equipment’ (eg a computer or mobile device) when the user accesses a website. It allows the website to recognise that user’s device and store some information about the user’s preferences or past actions.

  • How Are Cookies Used?

    Websites mainly use cookies to:

    • Identify users
    • Remember users custom preferences
    • Help users complete tasks without having to re‑enter information when browsing from one page to another or when visiting the site later.

    Cookies can also be used for online behavioural targeted advertising, for example, to show advertisements relevant to something that the user has searched for in the past.

    The web server supplying a web page can store a cookie on the user’s computer or mobile device. An external web server that manages files which is included or referenced in a web page is also able to store cookies. All of these cookies are called HTTP header cookies. Another way of storing cookies is through JavaScript code contained or referenced in a web page.

    Each time that a user requests a new web page, the web server can receive the values of the cookies that it had previously set and return the page with content relating to these values. Similarly, JavaScript code is able to read a cookie belonging to its domain and perform an action accordingly.

  • What Type of Cookies Do We Use?

    Our Cookies are either first party or third party. Whether a Cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party refers to the website or domain placing the Cookie. First Party Cookies are placed directly by us, while other parties we may do business with set Third Party Cookies. These third parties collect data directly from your web browser and the processing of this data is subject to their own privacy policies.

    Cookies are either:

    Session Cookies – which allow websites to link your actions during a browser session. We may use these for a variety of purposes such as remembering what you clicked on, on the previous page visited. These session Cookies expire after a browser session so would not be stored longer term; or

    Persistent Cookies – which are stored on your device in between browser sessions and allow your preferences or actions across a site (or in some cases across different websites) to be remembered. These Cookies do not expire once the browsing session closes and remain on your device until an expiration date set by the source of the Cookie.

  • What Categories of Cookies Do We Use?

    Functionality Cookies: These Cookies allow our website to remember if you have previously visited our site or the choices you make (such as your user name, language, region or preferences) to provide a more personalised online experience.
