Light Aircraft Sales – Cookies policy

This section of the policy sets out how Light Aircraft Sales and its network uses cookies.

What are cookies and how are they used?

A cookie is data sent from a website and stored on the user’s computer by the user’s web browser. The cookie is stored for a period of time.

The Light Aircraft Sales Network uses cookies for the following purposes:

  1. Functional – to perform helpful functions on the Light Aircraft Sales Network.
  2. Authentication – to allow Light Aircraft Sales to “remember” that you logged in as a member and provide you with member-only functions.

  4. Advertising – to allow Light Aircraft Sales and third party advertisers to track your browsing behaviour across the site and serve advertising based on that behaviour.

Interest-based advertising

Interest based advertising means using behavioural information about a person online to show them advertising more likely to be of interest to them. It doesn’t mean that you receive more advertising- just that what you see is more likely to be appropriate.

The information Light Aircraft Sales collects via cookies may be linked to other information Light Aircraft Sales and its Network companies hold about a user, compiling a complete profile about Light Aircraft Sales users’ browsing, purchasing and other activities. This data may be used by Light Aircraft Sales to provide personalised offers, marketing and advertising- including advertising across devices linked to the same IP address, or by third parties. Data may be shared with advertisers for these purposes.

We partner with third parties that collect information across various channels, including offline and online, for the purpose of delivering more relevant advertising to you. Our partners use this information to recognise you across different channels and platforms over time for advertising, analytics, attribution, and reporting purposes.

Your cookie options

You can change your cookie preferences for all websites by changing your browser settings. If you reject the use of cookies, some Light Aircraft Sales Network functions may not work properly. If you continue to use the Light Aircraft Sales Network without deleting or rejecting cookies, you agree that we can place these cookies on your device.
