This Cookie Notice describes the different types of cookies and similar technologies that may be applied on totalmobile.co.uk and, where relevant, on other Totalmobile websites that link to this Cookie Notice (the “Sites”).
- What is a cookie?
Cookies are small text files that a website transfers to your hard drive to store and sometimes collect information about your usage of websites, such as time spent on the Sites, pages visited, language preferences, and other traffic data. We use the information for security purposes, to facilitate navigation, to display information more effectively, to personalize your experience while using the Sites and to recognize your computer in order to assist your use of the Sites. We also gather statistical information about use of the Sites in order to improve their design and functionality, understand how they are used and assist us with resolving questions regarding them.
There are different types of cookies, for example:
- Cookies served directly by Totalmobile (‘first party cookies’) and cookies served on our behalf, for example by advertisers and data analytics companies (‘third party cookies’)
- Cookies which endure for different periods of time, including those that only last only as long as your browser is open (referred to as ‘session cookies’) These are deleted automatically once you close your browser. Other cookies are ‘permanent cookies’, meaning that they survive after your browser is closed. For example, they recognize your device when you open your browser and browse the internet again.
- What cookies do we use?
Strictly Necessary Cookies. These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
Performance Cookies. These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
Functional Cookies. These cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.
Targeting Cookies. These cookies may be set through our site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. They do not store directly personal information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.
- How do I manage cookies?
You have the right to choose whether or not to accept cookies. You can control the way in which cookies are used by altering your browser settings. You may refuse to accept cookies by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to reject cookies. Information about the procedure to follow in order to enable or disable cookies can be found on your Internet browser provider’s website via your help screen. You can change your cookie settings. However, if you choose not to accept cookies, this may affect the functioning of our Sites.
If you are using a mobile device, you can limit interest-based advertising on your device by adjusting the settings provided by your device manufacturer, such as “Limit Ad Tracking” for iOS or “Opt-out of interest-based ads” for Android.

We may change this Cookie Notice from time to time. Please take a look at the “Last Revised” legend at the top of this page to see when this Cookie Notice was last revised. If we make significant changes to this Cookie Notice, we will notify you of changes when you next visit any of our Sites.
