Law (European Directive 2002/58/EC amended by 2009/136/EC)
A new law on cookies demands that you, as a website user, are given the opportunity to understand how cookies are used on our websites and consent to cookies being stored on your computer or mobile device.
What is a cookie?
Most common cookies
Cookies come in two main categories, and then a number of sub-categories. The two main categories are persistent or session cookies.
These cookies expire when you close your web browser. Session cookies are deleted from your device when you leave the OmegaDroid Sites.
These cookies are still stored on your computer after you have closed your web browser which allows your preferences on websites to be remembered. These cookies are used for a variety of purposes, for example, remembering your preferences on a website (your language choice or your user name on a particular website).
We use functional cookies to remember how you like to use the OmegaDroid Sites and to personal them accordingly. We can’t identify you personally through the use of these cookies, nor do these cookies track your browsing habits, but they do help us serve you with ads.
Analytics cookies collect information about your use of the OmegaDroid Sites, and enable us to improve the way it works. We can’t identify you personally through the use of these cookies; we just use them for statistics.

We may, in certain situations, use Adobe Flash Player to deliver special content, such as video clips or animation. To improve your user experience, Local Shared Objects (commonly known as “Flash cookies”) are employed to provide functions such as remembering your settings and preferences. Flash cookies are stored on your terminal, but they are managed through an interface different from the one provided by your web browser. This means it is not possible to manage Flash cookies at the browser level, in the same way you would manage cookies. Instead, you can access your Flash management tools from Adobe’s website directly. The Adobe website provides comprehensive information on how to delete or disable Flash cookies – see http://www.adobe.com/security/flashplayer for further information. Please be aware that if you disable or reject Flash cookies for this website, you may not be able to access certain features, such as video content or services that require you to sign in.
First and Third Party cookies
This refers to the website placing the cookie. First party cookies are cookies set by the website you are visiting. Third party cookies are set by another website; the website you are visiting may have advertising on the page and this other website will be able to set a cookie on your computer. Third party cookies on the main web browsers allow third party cookies by default. Changing the settings on your browsers can prevent this.
There are some exemptions to the above where it is essential for a website to store information on your computer, for example, to provide a service to you that you have requested.
