We may also use such aggregate information to help advertisers reach the kind of audience they want to target (for example, women in SW1). We may make use of the personal data we have collected from you to enable us to comply with our advertisers' wishes by displaying their advertisement to that target audience].

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA").

Cookie Policy

This site uses cookies. By using this site, you agree that we may store and access cookies on your device.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a piece of information in the form of a small text file that is placed on an internet user's computer or mobile phone when you first visit a website or page. Cookies are typically made up of letters and numbers and are stored on your computer by your internet browser which are then sent back to the originating website which recognises the cookie.

Why do we use cookies?

Like most websites RP Adam uses cookies to make your visit to our website easier and to improve the quality of your user experience: by enabling cookies, user's preferences, information and general statistics can be stored.

These statistics are things such as how many people have visited our website, what type of browser/technology they are using, as well as how long they spent on our site. These cookies help us to continuously measure and improve the performance of our website, and ultimately the user experience.

Are cookies dangerous?

No, is the simple answer. Cookies cannot be used to circulate viruses, and they cannot access your computer's hard drive, although they are stored on the hard drive. They only contain and transfer to the server as much information as the users themselves have disclosed to a certain website.

Why do people reject cookies if they are safe?

A server cannot set a cookie for a domain that it is not a member of: however users may often discover cookies from websites that they have not visited in their computer. Cookies like these are usually used by companies that use internet advertising for other websites.

It may be possible that the user's information can be passed to third parties without the user's knowledge through cookies like these. This is the main reason for people disallowing cookies. Please note that at RP Adam we do not use cookies to collect or pass any personally identifiable or sensitive information to advertisers or third parties.
