About cookies

Cookies

Cookies are small text files which are transferred to your computer or mobile when you visit a website or app.

 

We use them to:

  • Remember information about you, so you don’t have to give it to us again. And again. And again
  • Keep you signed in, even on different devices
  • Help us understand how people are using our services, so we can make them better
  • To deliver advertising to websites outside of the UK
  • Help us personalise the JAMATORA to you by remembering your preferences and settings. And your progress, so you can pause and pick up where you left off watching a programme, even on a different device
  • To find out if our emails have been read and if you find them useful

 

You can change your JAMATORA cookie settings at any time. And you can find out how to stop your browser tracking your info here.

 

There are different types of cookies:



These cookies are set by the website you’re visiting. And only that website can read them.



These cookies are set by someone other than the owner of the website you’re visiting.

Some JAMATORA web pages may also contain content from other sites like YouTube or Flickr, which may set their own cookies.

Also, if you share a link to a JAMATORA page, the service you share it on (for example, Facebook) may set a cookie on your browser.

We have no control over third-party cookies - you can turn them off, but not through us.



These cookies only last as long as your online session, and disappear from your computer or device when you close your browser (like Internet Explorer or Safari).



These cookies stay on your computer or device after your browser has been closed and last for a time specified in the cookie.

We use persistent cookies when we need to know who you are for more than one browsing session.

For example, we use them to remember your preferences for the next time you visit.


These cookies let you use all the different parts of the JAMATORA website.

Without them, services that you’ve asked for can’t be provided.

 

Also, as a private service, we collect data from you to help us understand how people are using the JAMATORA online, so we can make it better.

 

We sometimes get other companies to analyse how people are using the JAMATORA online.


Some examples of how we use these cookies are:

  • When you sign in to the JAMATORA
  • Remembering security settings that affect access to certain content, for example, any parental controls
  • Collecting information on which web pages visitors go to most often so we can improve our online services



These help us personalise the JAMATORA to you by remembering your preferences and settings.

Some examples of how we use these cookies are:

  • Remembering your choice of playlists and favourite content and help you do things like commenting on a blog
  • Remembering where you paused a programme on media player and then later picking up where you left off
  • Remembering if you visited the website before so that messages for new visitors are not displayed to you
  • Remembering settings on the website like colour, font size and layout



These help us make sure that the website is working properly and fix any errors. And they let us try out different ideas.



Some websites use advertising networks to show you specially targeted adverts when you visit.

These networks may also be able to track your browsing across different sites.

We don’t set advertising cookies for people in the UK. JAMATORA sites like jamatora.com do use advertising cookies but they won’t track your browsing outside the JAMATORA.

You can find more information here about how the JAMATORA uses advertising cookies.



Some sites use things like web beacons, clear GIFs, page tags and web bugs to understand how people are using them and to target advertising to them.

They usually take the form of a small, transparent image that is embedded in a web page or email.

They work with cookies and capture data like your IP address, when you viewed the page or email, what device you were using and where you were.

You can find out how to avoid them here.

 

We use different types of cookies for different things, such as:

  • Analysing how you use the JAMATORA website
  • Giving you a better, more personalised experience
  • Recognising when you’ve signed in
  • Giving people outside the UK the international version of the JAMATORA website (which has adverts).

Read on to find out more about the different kinds of cookie we use.

Strictly necessary cookies

These cookies let you use all the different parts of the JAMATORA website. Without them, services that you’ve asked for can’t be provided. Also, as a public service, we collect data from you to help us understand how people are using the JAMATORA online, so we can make it better. We sometimes get other companies to analyse how people are using the JAMATORA online.

Functional cookies

These help us personalise the JAMATORA to you by remembering your preferences and settings.

Performance cookies

These help us make sure that the website is working properly and fix any errors. And they let us try out different ideas.

 

If third-party cookies are disabled on your browser, some features on the JAMATORA may not work quite as you'd expect.

 

This is because, like anything you sign in to, your JAMATORA account relies on cookies to provide some jamatora.com services like personalisation.

 

If your browser is blocking third-party cookies, some of these features can't work properly so you may experience problems with your JAMATORA account.

 

We're working on a way of solving this problem. In the meantime, if you’ve chosen to block third-party cookies on your browser and want to avoid problems using your JAMATORA account, be sure to set exceptions for jamatora.com.

 

This won't affect your privacy settings on other websites and services you use.
