What types of cookies do we use?

There are a number of different types of cookies, however, our website uses:

  • Functionality – Bluescope Technologies uses these cookies so that we recognize you on our website and remember your previously selected preferences. These could include what language you prefer and location you are in. A mix of first-party and third-party cookies are used.

  • Advertising – Bluescope Technologies uses these cookies to collect information about your visit to our website, the content you viewed, the links you followed and information about your browser, device, and your IP address. Bluescope Technologies sometimes shares some limited aspects of this data with third parties for advertising purposes. We may also share online data collected through cookies with our advertising partners. This means that when you visit another website, you may be shown advertising based on your browsing patterns on our website.

    We use third party advertisements to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies when they advertise on our site, which also send these advertisers (such as Google, through the Google AdSense program) information including the browser you used to visit our site. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (e.g. showing Dublin real estate to someone in Dublin) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (e.g. showing electronic goods ads to someone who frequently visits electronics sites).

  • Our site utilises the Conversion Tracking Pixel service of Facebook Inc. This tool allows us to follow the actions of users after they are redirected to our site by clicking on a Facebook advertisement. The collected data remains anonymous. This means that we cannot see the personal data of any individual user. However, the collected data are saved and processed by Facebook. Facebook is able to connect the data with your Facebook account and use the data for their own advertising purposes, in accordance with Facebook’s Data Use Policy found under www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
