At Birdie, we believe in being transparent about how we process data about you and how we use cookies and similar technologies on our websites.

About Cookies

The UK Information Commissioner defines cookies as ‘small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.’  Any browser visiting our site will potentially receive cookies from us or cookies from third parties such as our partners or service providers, like our recruitment provider, Workable.

We use two types of cookies: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie lasts beyond the current session and is used for many purposes, such as recognizing you as an existing user, so any preferences you have added will be available the next time you visit. Session cookies last only as long as the session. Once you close the page, the cookie is deleted.

Consent for Cookies

When we want to use any cookie category other than “Strictly Necessary”, we will ask for your consent. This is done via our cookie banner. You can edit your consent options at any time by XXXXXX. If we make any changes to the list of cookies that we use, then we will automatically show you the cookie banner then next time you visit our site, so you have full control over the consent you provide.

Please note that if you decline cookies using our banner, or set your browser to block cookies, some or all of the website and services may not have full functionality and your user experience may be impacted. The website will work, but only in its simplest form.
