The law states that we can store cookies on your machine if they are essential to the operation of this site but that for all others we need your permission to do so. These cookies are set when you submit a form or interact with the site by doing something that goes beyond clicking on simple links.
We do use some non-essential cookies. We use this to gain useful knowledge about how the site is used so that we can keep improving it for our users. Without the knowledge we gain from the systems that use these cookies we would not be able to provide the service we do.
As is true of most websites, we gather certain information and store it in log files. This information includes Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp and clickstream data.
We use this information to analyse trends, to administer the site, to track users' movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. JLG Group PLC and all its Group Companies will not use the information collected to market directly to that person.
In some of our email messages we use a "click-through URL" linked to content on the JLG Group PLC and all its Group Companies website's. When a you click one of these URLs, they pass through our web server before arriving at the destination web page. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our communications. If you prefer not to be tracked simply avoid clicking text or graphic links in the email.
In addition we use pixel tags - tiny graphic images - to tell us what parts of our website customers have visited or to measure the effectiveness of searches customers perform on our site.
Pixel tags also enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read. And they tell us whether emails have been opened to assure that we're only sending messages that are of interest to our customers. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to a customer.
