A cookie is a small file that asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customers’ needs. We only use this information for purposes of statistical analysis; the data is then removed from the system.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie does not give us access to your computer or any information about you other than the data you choose to share with us.

1st Contact webpages may contain unobtrusive (usually invisible) objects embedded in web pages or emails known as tracking pixels - sometimes called web bugs, web beacons, single-pixel gifs, tracking tags or page tags - that allow us to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. Tracking pixels are not used to access your personally identifiable information on the 1st Contact network of sites and services; they are a technique we use to compile aggregated statistics about our overall website usage.
Tracking pixels collect only a limited set of information, including a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the pixel resides.
Please note that the term “tracking pixel” or “web bug” should NOT be confused with the term “computer worms”, which are malicious malware programs that replicate from computer to computer. 1st Contact and Sable Group do not employ, endorse or condone the usage of computer worms in any way, shape or form.
