Cookies are text files which a website may put on your computer or other device when you first visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit. Web beacons or similar files can also do the same thing. The term "cookies" is used in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.
Cookies serve many functions. For example, they can help analyse how well the website is performing, to remember your username and preferences, or even allow recommendations to be made regarding content PropertyPal.com believes will be most relevant to you.
Personal information can contain certain personal information - for example, if you click to "remember me" when logging in, a cookie will store your username. Most cookies won't collect information that identifies you, and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use the website, or a user's general location.
Some cookies are essential for the operation of the site. For example, some cookies allow PropertyPal.com to identify registered users and ensure they can access their ‘registered users only' pages. If a registered user opts to disable these cookies, the user will not be able to access all of the content that registration entitles them to.
Functionality cookies allow PropertyPal.com to remember your preferences. For example, cookies save you the trouble of typing in your username every time you access the site, and recall your saved searches and properties you have added to your favourites.
Other cookies analyse how visitors use the site and to monitor website performance. PropertyPal.com can therefore try to provide a high quality experience by customising its offering and quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise. For example, performance cookies keep track of which pages are very popular, which method of linking between pages is best, and can be used to determine why some pages are receiving error messages. PropertyPal.com might also use these cookies to highlight articles or site services that it thinks will be of interest to you based on your usage of the site.
Advertisers sometimes use their own cookies to provide you with targeted advertising. For example, advertisers may use a profile they have built on websites that you have previously visited to present you with more relevant advertisements during your visit to the site. PropertyPal.com believes that it is useful to its users to see advertisements that are more relevant to their interests.
PropertyPal.com also uses or allows third parties to serve cookies that fall into the four categories above. For example, like many companies, PropertyPal.com uses Google Analytics to help monitor the website traffic. PropertyPal.com may also use third party cookies to help with market research, revenue tracking, improving site functionality and monitoring compliance with PropertyPal.com's terms and conditions and copyright policy.
As explained above, cookies help you to get the most out of the site.
However, if you do wish to disable PropertyPal.com's cookies then please follow the instructions on the How to Manage Cookies page.
Please remember that if you do choose to disable cookies, you may find that certain sections of the site do not work properly.
Emails from PropertyPal.com may contain a single, campaign-unique "web beacon pixel" to determine whether PropertyPal.com's emails are viewed and verify any clicks through to links or advertisements within the email. This information may be used for purposes including determining which emails are more interesting to users, to query whether users who do not view emails wish to continue receiving them and to inform PropertyPal.com's advertisers in aggregate how many users have clicked on their advertisements. The pixel will be deleted when you delete the email. If you do not wish the pixel to be downloaded to your device, you should select to receive emails from PropertyPal.com in plain text rather than HTML.
