What are cookies?

How to control and delete cookies

We will not use cookies to collect personally identifiable information about you. However, if you wish to restrict or block the cookies which are set by this site (or, indeed, on any other site) most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through their browser settings. The ‘Help’ function within your browser should tell you how to do this. In respect of certain cookies that are set via this site, you can also disable these using the relevant link provided in the section above.

Alternatively, you may wish to visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org/ which contains comprehensive information on how to manage and delete cookies on a wide variety of browsers, as well as more general information about cookies. Please note that, as that website is not owned or operated by us, we are not responsible for any of its content.

Please be aware that restricting cookies may mean that you will not be able to take full advantage of all the features or services available on this site.

Email Tracking

Some of the emails we send to you may contain a ‘web beacon pixel’ or tracked links which allows us to identify when you have opened the email and to verify which links contained in the email you have accessed. We use this information to determine which parts of our emails are of most interest to you.

You can delete the pixel by deleting the email. If you do not wish to download the pixel to your computer or other device, you can ensure this by selecting to receive emails from us in plain text rather than HTML.

Alternatively you can unsubscribe from our mailing list by contacting us at info@thetenderspace.com or by using the ‘unsubscribe’ feature in any marketing emails you receive from us.

We may make changes to this Cookie Policy at any time by sending you an e-mail with the modified Terms or by posting a copy of them on the site. Any changes will take effect 7 days after the date of our email or the date on which we post the modified terms on the site, whichever is the earlier. Your continued use of the Site after that period expires means that you agree to be bound by the modified policy.
