In common with most websites, MP uses cookies to capture certain information about its sites’ use:

  • MP uses analytic cookies to understand how its websites are being used. These measure the number of visitors and tell MP how they navigate the sites.
  • MP offers sharing tools (Facebook, Twitter etc) – If you use these, the sharing tools for those sites set a variety of cookies.

To that end MP categorise cookie use as follows:

Category 1

Strictly necessary: to fit this category, the cookie must be “related to a service provided on the website that has been explicitly requested by the user”. Obvious cases include access to protected areas. MP also include cookies which remember previously entered text so it is not lost if the page refreshes.  Relevant cookies used are:

  •  sqlAuthCookieBack: Required for the CMS login for users
  • ASP.NET_SessionId: Required for the website application to store user sessions
  • _otpe: Required for CMS users
  • gsScrollPos: used for scroll positions
  • Fonts

Category 2

Performance based: the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) has issued guidelines on cookies.  It includes analytics, advertising and Pay Per Click cookies in this category – provided they only store anonymous data and cannot therefore be used for behavioural targeting of ads.  MP uses these cookies:

  • Google Analytics – Universal
  • Google Optimize
  • Google Tag Manager
  • HotJar Tracking Code

Category 3

Functionality based: these include cookies that remember user choices so that they have a more personalised experience. This may include detecting if the user has already seen a popup so that it isn’t shown again, submitting comments and remembering colours, text size, etc. MP does not currently use these cookies.

Category 4

Targeting/advertising based: primarily these are the cookies that the relevant regulations were originally aimed at. This is aimed at cookies such as those which serve up targeted ads. Guidance on these cookies advises website owners to get clear, explicit consent from users if a site employs such technology.

Mayfair Private does not use any cookies of this type.
