Cookies Policy

The privacy of your data is extremely important to us, so we thought we’d give you some background on how we use cookies, but more importantly, to let you know what we don’t do with the data collected by cookies.

Cookies are small data files that websites generate and ask to store on your computer. Most websites use cookies in one form or another – the Gentrack website is no exception.

We use cookies to:
• remember settings, so you do not have to keep re-entering them whenever you visit a new page;
• remember information you give to us through the Gentrack website; and
• better understand how you use the website so we can make sure it meets your needs.

We do not use cookies to:
• Collect any personal data about you (without your express permission)
• Collect any sensitive personal data about you (without your express permission)
• Pass data to advertising networks
• Pass personal data to third parties.


Gentrack Cookies

The cookies used by the Gentrack website include:

1. Cookies set by Gentrack to establish your permission for us to use cookies;
2. Cookies set by our web platform, WordPress, to enable admin functions, such as information about your browser settings, to determine which functionality to enable on the site, as well as to remember your choices. For example, if you filter a list of information, we will remember your choices and default to that selection if you visit the page again. These choices are not tied to any personally identifiable information.
3. Cookies for anonymous visitor statistics set by Google Analytics to identify which pages are being used and for how long. This helps us to map visitor journeys and analyse data about webpage traffic to improve our website and optimise the visitor experience. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system. We do not link this information to your personal details.

Better browsing experiences
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. Cookies expire after a set amount of time.

Giving us permission to use cookies
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

If your browser is set to accept cookies, we take this, and your continued use of our site as acceptance of our Cookie Policy. If you wish not to accept the use of cookies, or to delete any that have already been set, you can find out how below.


Managing Cookies

If you want to, you can usually stop your browser accepting cookies from all sites, or stop it accepting cookies from a particular website. However, as cookies are a standard part of most modern websites, remember that this may limit the functionality of not only our site but many others too.

You can find the tools to manage cookies in the ‘Preferences’ or ‘Tools’ menu of your browser, otherwise you should use the ‘Help’ option in your browser for more details.
