  1. INTRODUCTION

Our website, https://protectionzone.co.uk (hereinafter: “the website”), uses cookies and other related technologies (for convenience all technologies are referred to as “cookies”). Cookies are also placed by third parties we have engaged. In the document below, we inform you about the use of cookies on our website.

A web beacon (or a pixel tag) is a small, invisible piece of text or image on a website that is used to monitor traffic on a website. In order to do this, various data about you is stored using web beacons.

  1. CONSENT

When you visit our website for the first time, we will show you a pop-up message which explains the different categories of cookies we use and asking for your consent to use cookies that are not categorised as functional. As soon as you click on “Save preferences”, you consent to us using the categories of cookies and plug-ins you selected in the pop-up, as described in this Cookie Policy (see section 6 Cookies below for more information about the different categories of cookies). If you move to another page without clicking “Save Preferences”, we will consider this your consent for setting the Functional cookies on your device.

5.1 Manage your consent settings 


You can change or withdraw your cookie consent settings using the Manage Consent pop-up at the bottom left of the website or by contacting us – see Section 10 Contact Details below.

  1. COOKIES

6.1 Functional cookies

Functional (necessary) cookies help to make our website usable by enabling basic functions like page navigation and access to secure areas of the website. The website cannot function properly without these cookies.

By placing functional cookies, we make it easier for you to visit our website. This way, you do not need to repeatedly enter the same information when visiting our website and, for example, the items remain in your shopping cart until you have paid. Because these cookies are strictly necessary we may place these cookies without your consent. 

6.2 Statistics cookies

We use statistics/analytics cookies to optimize the website experience for our users using insights about how visitors use our website, such as page views, and we ask your permission to place analytical cookies via the cookie pop up banner – see section 5 Consent above for more information.

6.3 Marketing cookies 

We use marketing cookies to track visitors across our sites. This allows us, and other third-party companies, to provide you with more relevant, engaging and personalized marketing based on your preferences or interactions with other sites. We ask your permission to place marketing cookies via the cookie pop up banner – see section 5 Consent above for more information.

6.4 Social media buttons

On our website we have included buttons for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram to promote webpages (e.g. “like”, “pin”) or share (e.g. “tweet”) on social networks like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram. These buttons work using pieces of code coming from Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram themselves. This code places cookies. These social media buttons also can store and process certain information, so a personalized advertisement can be shown to you.

Please read the privacy statement of these social networks (which can change regularly) to read what they do with your (personal) data which they process using these cookies. The data that is retrieved is anonymized as much as possible. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram are located in the United States.
