Cookies and what they do
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Some cookies are only placed on your device for the time you are browsing the website. Others may be stored on your device and 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 are commonly used by websites to remember some aspect of your current or previous visit. This could include things like the choices you’ve made or preferences you’ve chosen during your visit. Websites commonly do this in order to improve or tailor your current and future visits to that site or other related sites.
They are stored in your browser’s cache and allow a website or a third party to recognise your browser. Most browsers support cookies but you can configure your computer or mobile device browser's settings locally to reflect your preference to accept or reject cookies, including how to handle third-party cookies (see Accepting, deleting, and how to turn off cookies section below).

Categories of cookies
Below, we have set out the four categories of cookies that we use on our website and what they are used for. These cookies are:
Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
These cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.
These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
These cookies may be set through our site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. They do not store directly personal information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.
Other Similar Technologies
In addition to cookies, there are other similar technologies used on Chill’s website.
- SOCIAL WIDGETS: These are buttons or icons provided by third-party social media providers that allow you to interact with those social media services when you view a web page. These social widgets may collect browsing data, which may be received by the third party that provided the widget, and are controlled by the third parties.
- UTM CODES: These are strings that can appear in a URL (the “Uniform Resource Locator”, which is typically the http or https address entered to go to a web page) when a user moves from one web page or website to another, where the string can represent information about browsing, such as which advertisement, page, or publisher sent the user to the receiving website.
- APPLICATION SDKS: These are mobile application third-party software development kits that are embedded within the application. These SDKs permit the collection of information about the application itself, activity in the application, and the device the application is running on.
- LOCAL STORAGE: These are sets of data that can be stored on your browser by a site or application. They can be used to maintain preferences, a history of usage, or even the state or settings of a site or an application.
