What is a cookie?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when
you visit a certain webpage. Cookies are then sent back to the originating webpage on each subsequent visit, or to another
webpage that recognises that cookie. Cookies can remain on your computer or mobile device for different periods of time.
Some cookies are ‘session cookies’, meaning that they exist only while your browser is open. These are deleted automatically
once you close your browser. Other cookies are ‘permanent cookies’, meaning that they survive after your browser is closed.
They can be used by the Website to recognise your computer when you open your browser and browse the Internet again. Cookies
do lots of different jobs and they are widely used in order to make the Website work, or to work more efficiently by letting
you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience, as well as
to provide information to the owners of the Website. Therefore Cookies enables us to gather keywords from URLs of web-pages
from which you accessed our site and operate our site more effectively in such a way it reflects your personal preferences,
based on your previous browsing on GetValue.co. For example: Cookies may tell us whether you have visited the Website
before or whether you are a new visitor. They can also help us to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to

advertising networks, providers of external services like web traffic analysis services and content recommendation engines)
than GetValue.co using any third party links available on GetValue.co, are sent to your computer or mobile devices
and sent back to those third party sites. When third part cookies are sent to your mobile device and sent back to the third

What it does
Cookies necessary for essential Website purposes
These cookies are essential to provide you with the Website and any services available through this
Website and to use some of its features, such as access to secure areas. Without these cookies, services
you have asked for, like transactional pages and secure login accounts, would not be possible.
These are cookies that are required for the administration and operation of our site as they are necessary
for our site to function properly. We may use functional cookies that allow us to remember choices you have
made in relation to the site so as to provide a more personalised experience and enhanced user experience
by delivering content specific to your interests. This is to say functionality cookies record information
about choices you’ve made and allow us to tailor the Website to you. This also enables you to move around
the site and use its features.
These cookies may also mean that when you continue to use or come back to the Website, we can provide you
with our services as you have asked for them to be provided. For example, these cookies allow us to:
Save your location preference if you have set your location on your homepage, if applicable, in order to
receive a local weather forecast;
Remember settings you have applied, such as layout, text size, preferences, and colors;
Show you when you are logged in; and
Store accessibility options.
Analytical and Performance Cookies
We may use analytics service providers for website traffic analysis and reporting. Analytics service
providers generate statistical and other information about the use of the site by using cookies. They
allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how often visitors return to the site,
how long they stay and how visitors move around our site when they are using it. This helps us to improve
the way our site works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
The information generated relating to the site may be used to create reports about the use of the site
and the analytics service provider will also store this information.
We use performance/analytics cookies to analyze how the Website is accessed, used, or is performing in
order to provide you with a better user experience and to maintain, operate and continually improve
the Website. For example, these cookies allow us to:
Better understand our Website visitors so that we can improve how we present our content;
Test different design ideas for particular pages, such as our homepage;
Collect information about Website visitors such as where they are located and what browsers they are using;
Determine the number of unique users of the Website;
Improve the Website by measuring any errors that occur; and
Conduct research and diagnostics to improve product offerings.
Advertising, tracking and Targeting Cookies
As you use our Website, you will notice that it features advertising. We allow third party companies,
including advertising companies, to place cookies on our Website. These cookies enable such companies
to track your activity across various sites where they display ads and record your activities so they
can show ads that they consider relevant to you as you browse the Internet. These cookies are anonymous
— they store information about the content you are browsing, but not about who you are.
These cookies also allow us and third parties to know whether you’ve seen an ad or a type of ad, and how
long it has been since you’ve last seen it. This information is used for frequency capping purposes,
to help tailor the ads you see, and to measure the effectiveness of ads. Therefore; We may use these
cookies on our site to help us to place relevant GetValue.co advertising on others’ sites when you
visit such sites. We do this because we value your visit to our site and hope that you will be interested
in other GetValue.co offerings when you visit other sites
These cookies also record your visit to our site, the pages you have visited and the links you have
followed to other sites. We will use this information to try and make our site and other sites that
you visit more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with others, such as
other Get Value, Inc companies and carefully selected third parties. For this purpose, We work with
technology partners to support our website and to provide you with relevant information about the
products and services of other Get Value, Inc companies on our site and on affiliated sites or sites
within the advertising networks we work with. If you are not happy with this, please see the section
of this policy titled “How do I turn cookies off below”.
Social Media Cookies
On some pages of our Website, third parties that provide applications through our Website may set
their own anonymous cookies in order to track the success of their applications or customize applications
for you. For example, when you share an article using a social media sharing button on our Website
(e.g., Twitter or Facebook), the social network that has created the button will record that you have
Because GetValue.co has its presence on various social networks, we try and make it as easy as
possible to share content and to see what content is popular on those networks. We add buttons to
allow people to easily share to those networks. We also use Facebook plugins to power the commenting
functionality on our site. When we include these social ‘plugins’, it gives those sites the flexibility
cookies they set, but it lets them do the same kind of traffic measuring that we do on the rest of
GetValue.co, and it also lets them know whether you’re logged in or not. For example, if you’re
logged in to Facebook, read a post by Gaston Ngailo and want to make a comment, you can do that straight
away without having to log in again – we never know whether you’re logged in or not, as you communicate
directly with Facebook, through their plugins on our site. Some pages of our Website may also contain
embedded content, such as video content from YouTube or Vimeo, and these sites may set their own cookies.
Finally you must understand that, because of how cookies work, we cannot access these cookies, nor
can the third parties access the data in cookies used by us.
