When and why does Malik Developments place cookies?

Malik Developments places cookies on any browser that visits its sites. They are primarily used to collect data in order to help improve our website, by seeing which parts of the site are being used, how users are navigating to each page and what items they prefer to click on. This policy is set out so you can know which cookies Malik Developments uses and why; as well as giving you the option to opt-out of us using them on your computer if you wish.

What cookies does Malik Developments use?

Necessary cookies

– these help make a website usable by enabling basic functions, such as page navigation and access to secure areas of the site. The website cannot function properly without them.

Performance cookies

– like most websites, Malik Developments uses analytics software, such as Google Analytics. This software gathers anonymous data relating to how its site is being used and then provides aggregated visitor statistics, number of page views etc. Malik Developments supplements this data with its own analytics, which allow more in-depth analysis of how people use its site. This information is vital as it helps to make the site as easy to use and as effective as possible.

Malik Developments regularly adds new features and changes existing ones to improve the site, and optimize the user experience for all parties. To ensure the changes are useful, variants of these changes across the site, reviewing data from the analytics system to see what works best.

DoubleClick cookies

– Malik Developments may also use cookies for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick ad server, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and you visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests (‘interest based targeting’). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history. This cookie uses ‘non-personally identifiable information’ – it does not track any personal information about you whatsoever.

Third party cookies

– in addition to the cookies listed above, third parties may also set cookies when you visit the site. In some cases, that is because Malik Developments has hired a third party to provide services on its behalf, such as the enquiry form. Because your browser connects to those third parties’, they are able to set or read their own cookies on your device and may collect information about your online activities (but not any personally identifiable data). To control cookies from these third parties, please visit their respective sites.

Controlling cookies

– Malik Developmentswill make every effort to recognize and respect your choices; however there is a small chance that not all cookies and similar methods of data capture will be covered by these settings. If this is a concern to you then we recommend that you change the settings in your browser. The ‘help’ function within your browser should tell you how.

How are cookies used for advertising purposes?

Cookies and other ad technology such as beacons, pixels, and tags help Malik Developments serve relevant ads to you more effectively. They also help the Company provide aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for advertisers, understand and improve its service, and know when content has been shown to you. Note: because your web browser may request advertisements and beacons directly from third party ad network servers, these networks can view, edit, or set third party cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site. Ads served by Malik Developments may also set third party cookies.

Local storage

In addition to cookies, local storage allows Malik Developments to use a tiny bit of space on your machine to store information, in much the same way as cookies. This is used to store information which, we feel, enhances your journey through the site, by remembering previous actions and making them default for the future. All local storage is persistent, with no expiry.
