Frequently asked questions

Do cookies mean I could get cold calls or junk mail? We never use the data gathered through cookies to contact you via post, email or phone. We may use cookies to show you subtly tailored content on our website or other websites of things we think you might be interested in, but only in relation to ETT products and/or services. You will never see advertising on our website from anyone other than ETT group companies and our agents.

Can cookies pass on my personal information to others? The only time we may use cookies to share personal information such as your name, address, telephone or email is when you have given us express consent to do so by applying for a product or service. I so, we’d inform you that we’d be passing your details.

Do cookies compromise my security when I’m logged on? The cookies we use are completely safe. In fact, many of them are used purely to provide important security features such as protecting your data and your accounts.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are sent to and stored on your computer, smartphone or other device for accessing the internet, whenever you visit a website. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device.

At ETT, we use cookies for a variety of reasons, such as to determine preferences, let users navigate between pages efficiently, verify the user and carry out other essential security checks. Some of the functions that cookies perform can also be achieved using similar technologies. This policy refers to ‘cookies’ throughout, however it also covers these alternate mechanisms.

More information about cookies can be found on allaboutcookies.org.

How cookies make our website safer and easier to use

We use cookies to safeguard your privacy when you’re browsing our website. We also use them to let you use secure online application forms. If you leave a secure session window open when logged in, we use cookies to enhance your security by prompting you to end (or automatically ending) your secure session.

Finally, we use ‘analytics’ cookies to help us make our website better for those who visit it regularly. They help us work out what users like and don’t like and how we can improve things for you.

When we include links to other websites, please bear in mind they will have their own privacy and cookie policies that will govern the use of any information you submit. We recommend you read their policies as ETT is not responsible or liable for their privacy practices.
