Cookie Policy

We use cookies to help improve your exper­i­ence of http://www.popjustice.com. This cookie policy is part of Popjustice's privacy policy, and covers the use of cookies between your device and our site. We also provide basic inform­a­tion on third-party services we may use, who may also use cookies as part of their service, though they are not covered by our policy.

If you don’t wish to accept cookies from us, you should instruct your browser to refuse cookies from http://www.popjustice.com, with the under­stand­ing that we may be unable to provide you with some of your desired content and services.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small piece of data that a website stores on your device when you visit, typically con­tain­ing inform­a­tion about the website itself, a unique iden­ti­fier that allows the site to recognise your web browser when you return, addi­tional data that serves the purpose of the cookie, and the lifespan of the cookie itself.

Cookies are used to enable certain features (eg. logging in), to track site usage (eg. analytics), to store your user settings (eg. timezone, noti­fic­a­tion pref­er­ences), and to per­son­al­ise your content (eg. advert­ising, language).

Cookies set by the website you are visiting are normally referred to as “first-party cookies”, and typically only track your activity on that par­tic­u­lar site. Cookies set by other sites and companies (ie. third parties) are called “third-party cookies”, and can be used to track you on other websites that use the same third-party service.

Types of cookies and how we use them

Essential cookies

Essential cookies are crucial to your exper­i­ence of a website, enabling core features like user logins, account man­age­ment, shopping carts and payment pro­cessing. We use essential cookies to enable certain functions on our website.

Performance cookies

Performance cookies are used in the tracking of how you use a website during your visit, without col­lect­ing personal inform­a­tion about you. Typically, this inform­a­tion is anonymous and aggreg­ated with inform­a­tion tracked across all site users, to help companies under­stand visitor usage patterns, identify and diagnose problems or errors their users may encounter, and make better strategic decisions in improving their audience’s overall website exper­i­ence. These cookies may be set by the website you’re visiting (first-party) or by third-party services. We use per­form­ance cookies on our site.

Functionality cookies

Functionality cookies are used in col­lect­ing inform­a­tion about your device and any settings you may configure on the website you’re visiting (like language and timezone settings). With this inform­a­tion, websites can provide you with cus­tom­ised, enhanced or optimised content and services. These cookies may be set by the website you’re visiting (first-party) or by third-party service. We use func­tion­al­ity cookies for selected features on our site.

Targeting/advertising cookies

Targeting/advertising cookies are used in determ­in­ing what pro­mo­tional content is more relevant and appro­pri­ate to you and your interests. Websites may use them to deliver targeted advert­ising or to limit the number of times you see an advert­ise­ment. This helps companies improve the effect­ive­ness of their campaigns and the quality of content presented to you. These cookies may be set by the website you’re visiting (first-party) or by third-party services. Targeting/advertising cookies set by third-parties may be used to track you on other websites that use the same third-party service. We use targeting/advertising cookies on our site.

Third-party cookies on our site

We may employ third-party companies and indi­vidu­als on our websites—for example, analytics providers and content partners. We grant these third parties access to selected inform­a­tion to perform specific tasks on our behalf. They may also set third-party cookies in order to deliver the services they are providing. Third-party cookies can be used to track you on other websites that use the same third-party service. As we have no control over third-party cookies, they are not covered by Popjustice's cookie policy.

Our third-party privacy promise

We review the privacy policies of all our third-party providers before enlisting their services to ensure their practices align with ours. We will never knowingly include third-party services that com­prom­ise or violate the privacy of our users.

How you can control or opt out of cookies

If you do not wish to accept cookies from us, you can instruct your browser to refuse cookies from our website. Most browsers are con­figured to accept cookies by default, but you can update these settings to either refuse cookies alto­gether, or to notify you when a website is trying to set or update a cookie.

If you browse websites from multiple devices, you may need to update your settings on each indi­vidual device.

Although some cookies can be blocked with little impact on your exper­i­ence of a website, blocking all cookies may mean you are unable to access certain features and content across the sites you visit.

Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us. It is Popjustice's policy to respect your privacy regarding any inform­a­tion we may collect from you across our website, http://www.popjustice.com, and other sites we own and operate.

Information we collect

Log data

When you visit our website, our servers may auto­mat­ic­ally log the standard data provided by your web browser. This data is con­sidered “non-identi­fy­ing inform­a­tion”, as it does not per­son­ally identify you on its own. It may include your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, your browser type and version, the pages you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on each page, and other details.

We may also collect data about the device you are using to access our website. This data may include the device type, operating system, unique device iden­ti­fi­ers, device settings, and geo-location data. What we collect can depend on the indi­vidual settings of your device and software. We recommend checking the policies of your device man­u­fac­turer or software provider to learn what inform­a­tion they make available to us.

Personal information

We may ask for personal inform­a­tion, such as your:

  • Name
  • Email
  • Social media profiles
  • Date of birth
  • Home/Mailing address
  • Payment inform­a­tion

This data is con­sidered “identi­fy­ing inform­a­tion”, as it can per­son­ally identify you. We only request personal inform­a­tion relevant to providing you with a service, and only use it to help provide or improve this service.

How we collect inform­a­tion

We collect inform­a­tion by fair and lawful means, with your knowledge and consent. We also let you know why we’re col­lect­ing it and how it will be used. You are free to refuse our request for this inform­a­tion, with the under­stand­ing that we may be unable to provide you with some of your desired services without it.

Use of inform­a­tion

We may use a com­bin­a­tion of identi­fy­ing and non-identi­fy­ing inform­a­tion to under­stand who our visitors are, how they use our services, and how we may improve their exper­i­ence of our website in future. We do not disclose the specifics of this inform­a­tion publicly, but may share aggreg­ated and anonymised versions of this inform­a­tion, for example, in website and customer usage trend reports.

We may use your personal details to contact you with updates about our website and services, along with pro­mo­tional content that we believe may be of interest to you. If you wish to opt out of receiving pro­mo­tional content, you can follow the “unsub­scribe” instruc­tions provided alongside any pro­mo­tional cor­res­pond­ence from us.

Data pro­cessing and storage

The personal inform­a­tion we collect is stored and processed in United Kingdom, or where we or our partners, affil­i­ates and third-party providers maintain facil­it­ies. We only transfer data within jur­is­dic­tions subject to data pro­tec­tion laws that reflect our com­mit­ment to pro­tect­ing the privacy of our users.

We only retain personal inform­a­tion for as long as necessary to provide a service, or to improve our services in future. While we retain this data, we will protect it within com­mer­cially accept­able means to prevent loss and theft, as well as unau­thor­ised access, dis­clos­ure, copying, use or modi­fic­a­tion. That said, we advise that no method of elec­tronic trans­mis­sion or storage is 100% secure, and cannot guarantee absolute data security.

If you request your personal inform­a­tion be deleted, or where your personal inform­a­tion becomes no longer relevant to our oper­a­tions, we will erase it from our system within a reas­on­able timeframe.

Cookies

We use “cookies” to collect inform­a­tion about you and your activity across our site. A cookie is a small piece of data that our website stores on your computer, and accesses each time you visit, so we can under­stand how you use our site. This helps us serve you content based on pref­er­ences you have specified. Please refer to our Cookie Policy for more inform­a­tion.

Third-party access to inform­a­tion

We use third-party services for:

  • Analytics tracking
  • User authen­tic­a­tion
  • Advertising and promotion
  • Payment pro­cessing

These services may access our data solely for the purpose of per­form­ing specific tasks on our behalf. We do not share any per­son­ally identi­fy­ing inform­a­tion with them without your explicit consent. We do not give them per­mis­sion to disclose or use any of our data for any other purpose.

We may, from time to time, allow limited access to our data by external con­sult­ants and agencies for the purpose of analysis and service improve­ment. This access is only permitted for as long as necessary to perform a specific function. We only work with external agencies whose privacy policies align with ours.

We will refuse gov­ern­ment and law enforce­ment requests for data if we believe a request is too broad or unrelated to its stated purpose. However, we may cooperate if we believe the requested inform­a­tion is necessary and appro­pri­ate to comply with legal process, to protect our own rights and property, to protect the safety of the public and any person, to prevent a crime, or to prevent what we reas­on­ably believe to be illegal, legally action­able, or unethical activity.

We do not otherwise share or supply personal inform­a­tion to third parties. We do not sell or rent your personal inform­a­tion to marketers or third parties.

Children’s Privacy

This website does not knowingly target children, or collect personal inform­a­tion from children. As a parent/guardian, please contact us if you believe your child is par­ti­cip­at­ing in an activity involving personal inform­a­tion on our website, and you have no received a noti­fic­a­tion or request for consent. We do not use your supplied contact details for marketing or pro­mo­tional purposes.

Limits of our policy

This privacy policy only covers Popjustice's own col­lect­ing and handling of data. We only work with partners, affil­i­ates and third-party providers whose privacy policies align with ours, however we cannot accept respons­ib­il­ity or liability for their respect­ive privacy practices.

Our website may link to external sites that are not operated by us. Please be aware that we have no control over the content and policies of those sites, and cannot accept respons­ib­il­ity or liability for their respect­ive privacy practices.
