If you provide any personal information via this web site then the IP address of the computer you are using at the time you provide this information will be stored by SN&CK Media Limited. IP addresses may be used by SN&CK Media Limited for various reasons, including but not limited to differentiating between users from different geographical locations or to help with technical problems that may relate to certain groups of IP addresses.
EXPERIAN – With your consent, we will share your IP address and first party cookie with Experian who will use it to carry out data profiling by linking your IP address and first party cookie to your postal address and in turn, to one or more of the “predictive models” they have created. Experian’s predictive models are created using data from various data sources (including public data sources) and are used to try to predict behaviour and preferences (e.g. how likely you are to buy a holiday online or take a particular type of holiday) or likely circumstances (e.g. Experian’s model might predict you are a city dweller and therefore less likely to be interested in gardening). Experian will not share the details we provide to them about you with any third party but will use and store it primarily to help:
• us better understand the likely characteristics of visitors to our website(s);
• us improve the relevancy and appropriateness of the advertisements we display to you when you visit our website(s); and
• Experian to link identifiers with the same IP address together for the purposes of applying their predictive models
