Use of cookies

We use "cookies" to identify you when you visit the www.1stcontact.com site and to build up a demographic profile.

A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a web server to a web browser, which enables the server to collect information back from the browser. Find out more about the use of cookies on http://www.cookiecentral.com

Our use of cookies also allows registered users to be presented with a personalised version of the site.

Use of web beacons

1st Contact web pages may contain electronic images known as web beacons - sometimes called single-pixel GIFs - that allow the 1st Contact Group to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. Web beacons are not used to access your personally identifiable information on the 1st Contact network of sites and services; they are a technique we use to compile aggregated statistics about 1st Contact website usage.

Web beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the Web beacon resides.

Given that the Internet is a global environment, using the Internet to collect and process personal data necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international basis. Therefore, by browsing the www.1stcontact.com and communicating electronically with us, you acknowledge and agree to our processing of personal data in this way.
