Cookie Notice

Effective from June, 2022

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. This cookie notice sets out how we use cookies or other information downloaded to your device when you browse our website or use our app. It should be read in conjunction with our Privacy Notice, available here:

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.

What Cookies Do We Use?

The list of cookies being used on our website is available here. You will see that the cookies are split into the following categories:

Functional Cookies

These cookies allow us to provide additional functionality, like the ability to have an online chat function, or to be able to show videos.

Strictly Necessary

These cookies are necessary for the website or application to function. Without them the site will not work. Or, they provide functionality that the user expects to exist. Or, the cookies enable us to adhere to the GDPR security requirements.

Performance Cookies

Performance cookies are used so we can collect information about how people use our website – for example, the number of users on a website, how long they stay on the site for, and what parts of the site they visit.

Advertising Cookies

These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to our website visitors and their interests. They are also used to limit the number of times a visitors will see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns.

Social Media Cookies

Social media cookies allow users to interact more easily with social media, such as Facebook and Instagram. Where we provide social media links or interactions on our website, such as like or share buttons, and you interact with them, the social media organisation may drop cookies and they will be covered by the Privacy Policy of that organisation.  We typically do not receive any personal data collected as a result of such interaction, although we may receive aggregated reports.

If you want to exercise any of these rights, please just contact us on
