This cookie policy (the “Cookie Policy”) has been developed to explain how Rubix VT uses cookies and similar technologies (together, “Cookies”) on its website and to demonstrate its firm commitment to the privacy of your personal information.

The first time that you visit a Rubix VT Website, you will be notified about Rubix VT’s use of Cookies through a notification banner. By continuing to use the Website, you consent to Rubix VT’s use of Cookies as described in this Cookie Policy. However, you can choose whether or not to continue accepting Cookies at any later time. Information on how to manage Cookies is set out later in this Cookie Policy.

What are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files that may be placed on your computer or other mobile or handheld device (e.g. smartphone or tablet) via your internet browser when you visit a website.

Cookies can be ‘Session Cookies’ or ‘Persistent Cookies’. Session Cookies allow a website to link a series of your actions during one browser session and will expire when you leave the website. Persistent Cookies are stored on your computer or device and can be used again each time you visit the website which created that particular Cookie. Persistent Cookies will expire on a given date or can be deleted manually.

The use of Cookies is now standard for most websites and is often required to help the website to recognize you the next time you visit, providing you with an improved experience and a better service.

‘First Party’ and ‘Third Party’ Cookies

Some of the Cookies used by this Website are served by Rubix VT (first party), and some are served by third parties e.g. Google Analytics and YouTube. Please refer to the associated third-party website for terms, policies and further information on their use of Cookies, as Rubix VT does not control the settings of Cookies set by third parties.

How Rubix VT uses Cookies

Rubix VT uses Cookies to determine if you have visited its Website before. If you have not visited before or recently, the Website will provide additional information to you. Cookies may also be used to record data that you have provided via a contact form on the site – allowing it or similar forms to be pre-populated on subsequent visits to save you the effort of re-keying. Rubix VT also uses Cookies to collect anonymous usage data. This allows the popularity of different sections of the website to be tracked and later improved where necessary.

Cookies we use

Rubix VT uses three types of Cookies – ‘Strictly Necessary’ Cookies, ‘Performance’ Cookies and ‘Functionality’ Cookies. The type and purpose for which each of these Cookies is used is described below:

Strictly Necessary Cookies

These Cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the Website and use its features. They are usually set in response to you logging in, filling in forms or setting preferences.

Performance Cookies

These Cookies collect information about how visitors use a Website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These Cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these Cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous.

Functionality Cookies

These Cookies allow the Website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. These Cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customize. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching videos or commenting on a blog. The information these Cookies collect may be anonymized and they cannot track your browsing activity on other Websites.

Rubix VT has tried to cover all the Cookies that it or its technology partners use. Please note that there may be a short delay in updating this list. If you notice a discrepancy, please contact us.
