If you do not accept or delete our cookies, some areas of the Site that you access may take more time to work, or may not function properly.
WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small files containing a string of characters that we may store on your computer or mobile device when you visit the Site. When you visit the Site again, the cookies allow us to recognize your browser. Cookies may store your preferences and other information but cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Cookies set by a website owner (in this case, gap intelligence) are called “first party cookie”.
Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable us to provide third party features or functionality through the Site (i.e. advertising, social media functions and analytics).
THE COOKIES WE USE
Here are the types of cookies you will encounter in using our Website:
Strictly Necessary – these are required by the Websites to perform certain functions such as allowing users to log in to their web-based account;
Functional – these help to improve your experience by doing things like remembering certain preferences you have set or optimizing the Website for your device;
Analytic – these are used to analyze, in an aggregated manner, the way the Website is used so that we can improve the Website and our offerings. We use Google Analytics for this purpose.
The information that we collect with cookies allows us to statistically analyze usage of the Site, and to improve and customize our content and other offerings. However, we only disclose information collected with cookies to third parties on an aggregated basis without the use of any information that personally identifies you.

As well as cookies, we may use other technologies to recognize and track visitors to the Site. A web beacon (also known as a “tracking pixel” or “clear GIF”) is a clear graphic image (typically a one-pixel tag) that is delivered through a web browser or HTML e-mail, typically in conjunction with a cookie.
Web beacons allows us, for example, to monitor how users move from one page within our websites to another, to track access to our communications, to understand whether users have come to our websites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to measure how ads have been viewed and to improve site performance.
