This policy explains what cookies are and how Robiquity uses them. It’s important that you read this policy so that you know what type of cookies Robiquity uses, the information we collect and how any data is used.
What do I need to know about cookies?
Robiquity cookies are bits of data downloaded to any computer or device when you visit the Robiquity website.
Cookie data is stored in your browser in a small file labeled: cookie.txt. The browser then uses these cookie files to speed up every visit to our webpage, stowing away information and drawing on it for future visits. This allows faster access to each area of robiquity.com.
Cookies help our website to respond to you in a more personalised way and get all the information you need when you navigate your way across the Robiquity webpages.
Cookies also enable us to gain insight into how people are using our services, so we can make the necessary tweaks to improve quality. With cookies in place, we can see what people are finding most useful and what requires updating.
What are the different types of cookies?
Cookies come in many forms. Here are the different types we use at Robiquity and how they work:
These cookies are set by Robiquity. Only we can read these.
Third-party cookies are set by organisations other than Robiquity.
There may be content from other parties on the Robiquity website, and these parties set their own cookies. We have no control over these cookies, but there is still the option to turn them off (this must be done through the third party).
There may also be advertising cookies on our site which send specially-targeted adverts to each user.
Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are essential to keep the Robiquity website running.
Strictly necessary cookies collect data on users for the purposes of website improvements and also user experience (e.g. remembering login credentials for faster sign-in).
There are also performance cookies in place which help us to keep the Robiquity website ticking over and prevent connection problems.

Functional cookies allow us to remember your settings and preferences, which is beneficial for returning visitors.
For example, they may be used to remember where you last stopped any media on the Robiquity website so you can continue watching from the point you paused.
They may also prevent ‘new visitor’ pop-ups from occurring so you can enjoy browsing Robiquity without being subjected to messages you’ve already seen.
