Media Box Marketing Cookie Policy

What are cookies?

Cookies are tiny files that help track the use of the site and to personalise your journey. These cookies can be stored so that if you return to a website, that website server can call the information from the cookies stored on your computer to tailor your experience of the site.

Media Box Marketing Ltd (MBM) is no different; we use cookies to help you browse our website more effectively and to place online orders – we do not store personally identifiable information in our cookie data. We also use some carefully selected 3rd party suppliers to enhance your online experience and they will place cookies on your computer for use on our website too.

Cookies are perfectly safe to be stored on your computer and almost all web browsers have cookie storing enabled by default. However, all browsers have the option of disabling cookies being stored on your computer if you wish to do this.

Please be aware that disabling cookies on your browser will reduce your ability to browse online with MBM. We use cookies to process products in your basket and orders. Disabling your cookies will mean you cannot purchase through our website.

This would also be a common experience of reduced functionality across many websites.

MBM’s Exchange cookies

On MBM’s website (mediaboxmarketing.co.uk), we use social sharing buttons for services including, but not limited to, Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook. These allow you to share website pages with your friends via those networks. Whilst you will be asked to log in to use these services, this process is handled directly with the social network providers and their databases and servers; MBM accepts no responsibility for any use of your personally identifiable information and/or any further use of cookies by those social network providers.

Our cookies policy

  1. Google Analytics cookie: this shows web traffic analysis. These cookies have multiple expiration dates; please refer to Google for more information.
  2. Google AdWords and Google Remarketing: We use the online advertising program Google AdWords and the Google Remarketing technology, both operated by the company Google Inc. (“Google”). For measuring conversion with Google AdWords, a conversion tracking cookie is placed when a user clicks on a MBM advertisement delivered by Google (“Ads”). Conversion tracking cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. Google uses a different cookie for each Google AdWords customer and there is no consolidation of the cookie data with other data. If you click on one of our Ads and proceed to a page equipped with a conversion tag and the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion is documented. With the help of the conversion tracking cookie, we see the total number of conversions and are able to review the performance of our Ads. You can find more information about Google AdWords here.
  3. Facebook pixel: this is a ‘web beacon’, in this case, a pixel used on the MBM website, which functions in a similar way to a cookie. It is used to build up a ‘Custom Audience’ based on people who visit our website, so we can target more relevant and effective Facebook advertising campaigns. Please refer to Facebook for more information.
  4. LinkedIn Insight tag: a lightweight JavaScript snippet that drops a cookie on the web browser of a visitor whenever they visit our website. This will allow us to monitor our ads and conversions on our website.
