The Simply Business Cookie Policy


What are cookies? 

Cookies are small pieces of data that our website – like most websites - saves on your computer when you’ve visited. Cookies allow our website to respond to you individually by gathering and remembering information about your preferences. They also provide us with information about how people have interacted with our site so that we can make improvements to it. They are not harmful to your computer, don’t access information on your hard drive, and are not used by us to store personally identifiable information like card details.

How does the Simply Business website use cookies?

We respect our customers’ privacy and are open about the cookies we use and why. To make use of all the features of our website, it’s important that your computer or mobile device accepts cookies. These are the main ways in which we use cookies:

For the site to work properly:
We use cookies to keep you logged in to the website, to generate or retrieve quotes, and to give you access to your insurance policy.

To improve the site:
We also use cookies to track users on the site and understand how they are using it. We can then improve the website by gathering information including where users go, where they leave the website, and which pages are causing problems.

To provide targeted advertising:
Through third parties, some cookies help provide customised advertising.

Third party cookies

Other providers, carefully selected by us, may also set cookies when you visit our site. This is often for ‘remarketing’ or ‘behavioural advertising’, a widely used web technique that tracks the pages you look at and tries to show you relevant products and services based on your preferences. You should refer to the cookie policies of these sites for more detail about their individual cookie approach.

How do I control cookies?

Most internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can usually change your cookie preferences via your browser ‘preferences’ or ‘settings’ menu, usually in a privacy and security section. You can choose to block cookies here, but this will mean that our site and many others won’t work properly. You can also ask for alerts about cookies, see the cookies stored on your computer, and choose to remove or block particular cookies.
