Protecting our customers and their information is always a priority to us, and we are conscious that all information is collected securely.

Our policy on cookies

Our policy is to use cookies on our website to help make our customers’ visits more effective, to improve the way we do business, and when they’re essential to the way the site works. The type of activities we may use cookies for are to: store details that help to manage accounts and policies online; find out how people use our sites, such as how often they visit; what type of search engine (and version) are used; which pages they go to; and which links they click on. This will enable us to improve our sites and help us to provide relevant information, such as details of products, services and other information that may be of interest.

Unoccupied Direct does not use any cookies to store any personal data or other data that could be used to identify an individual.

What is a cookie?

Cookies are tiny data files that websites place on a computer or mobile device(s) when someone visits a website. Cookies are linked to the machine used to visit a website and not to any individual. Cookies are commonly used by websites to remember some aspect of an individual’s current or previous visit. This could include things like the choices made or preferences chosen. When the individual visits the website again, or visits another website that recognises that cookie, their device is able to communicate with the website and the website can read the information held in that cookie.

We use cookies to help our consumers efficiently browse our website and to save them time by not having to re-enter details each time they visit. Cookies allow us to provide information and show content relevant to a consumer’s previous searches on our websites. We also use cookies to analyse how our customers interact with our website, so we can improve their experience.

The information stored in a cookie can only be read by the website that placed the cookie, or other sites that it has agreed to share information with. Unoccupied Direct does not share information with any other sites.

Cookies used on our website are:

Session cookies are created temporarily when someone visits a website, for example, to remember their information entered in a form when navigating to different pages. They do not contain any personal information about the individual and are deleted when they leave the site.

Persistent, stored or permanent cookies are used to collect information, such as web surfing behavior or preferences for a specific website. These cookies are not deleted when an individual leaves the website, but expire after a set period.

First or third party cookies describe whether the cookies are issued by the website that is currently being visited (first party) or by a different site (third party).

Targeting cookies record traffic to our website, including the web pages visited and the links followed. We use this information to make our website and our advertising relevant to customer interests, and provide this information to third parties.

Why is this important?

EU privacy laws and UK Government legislation mean that we must let consumers know what cookies we use. The law aims to give them greater control over their online privacy. For more information, please visit The Information Commissioner’s website, found here: https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-pecr/cookies-and-similar-technologies/

At Unoccupied Direct, we are committed to protecting the privacy and security of our consumers, and we are dedicated to ensure that we maintain compliance with the relevant legislation and regulations.
