Cookie Policy

This cookies policy sets out how Mader Group Ltd (ACN 159 340 397) and all subsidiaries within our group of companies worldwide (referred to as “we”, “us”, “our” or “Mader Group”) use cookies to recognise you when you visit our websites.  It explains what cookies are, why we use them, as well as your rights to control the use of them.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files created and stored on the browser or hard drive of your computer.  Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer's hard drive and is sent back to our websites when you next visit.

There are various types of cookies including session cookies and persistent cookies.  Cookies that do not contain an expiration date are called session cookies.  When you close your browser, the session cookie is permanently lost and the website that created the cookie will not recognise you when you go back to that website.  Cookies that contain an expiration date are called persistent cookies.  Persistent cookies stay in your browser’s memory until you delete them manually or your browser deletes them automatically based on the expiration date contained in the cookie’s file.

Why do we use cookies?

Our websites use cookies to distinguish you from other users of our websites, monitor your use of our websites, compile aggregate data, improve our websites and provide you with a good experience when you browse our websites.   

We use the following cookies.

  • Strictly necessary cookies - These cookies are strictly necessary for the operation of our websites and to provide you with the services available through our websites.  They include, for example, cookies which enable you to navigate our websites and use their features.  This type of cookie only lasts for a limited time, for the duration of your visit to our websites or as otherwise required and is then deleted automatically.
  • Performance or analytical cookies - These allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our websites when they are using it.  These cookies are also used to enhance the performance of our websites and improve the way it works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.  For example, we may use Google Analytics cookies to help us collect information about how you move between pages on our websites and whether you download anything.
  • Functionality cookies - These are used to recognise you when you return to our websites.  This enables us to personalise your experience by remembering your preferences such as the country you accessed our Websites from. 
  • Targeting and customisation cookies - These cookies collect information to help us understand how our websites are being used and to help us customise our websites for you.
  • Third party cookies - These cookies are set by a website other than our websites.  For example, third party cookies are used when you click the share button on an article and choose to share the article to your social networks.  Third-party cookies may also be used for advertising purposes.  Examples of third parties that use cookies on our websites include Facebook, Twitter and Google. 

Other tracking technologies

We sometimes use other tracking technologies to track visitors to our websites.  These technologies are similar to cookies, such as web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or “clear gifs”).  Web beacons are tiny graphics files that enable us to identify when someone has visited our websites before.  We use this information to track the online behaviour of users of our websites.  This allows us to personalise your visit and make updates to our websites to make them more user friendly.

Third Party Websites

Some functions of our websites also rely on the use of third party providers to host different types of content.  For example, some of the widgets and videos on our websites are embedded from links to third party websites such as YouTube.  Such embedded content may contain third party cookies.  Information regarding the cookies in third party embedded content will be available in the relevant third party privacy policy or cookie policy.

How do I manage my cookies?

You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies.  You can set or amend your web browser controls to accept or refuse cookies.  If you choose to reject cookies, our websites may not function correctly.  Many third party advertising services also allow you to opt out of their tracking systems, by giving you the opportunity to opt out by way of a pop-up before downloading cookies to your device.

Updates to this policy

We may update this cookies policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes in applicable laws, changes to our practices or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons.  

This privacy policy was last updated on 5 July 2021.
