Cookie Policy

Date of last update: 4 July 2016

By continuing to browse our site, you are agreeing to our use of cookies. 

If you refuse to accept our use of cookies you will not be able to receive all of our site content and will not be able to enjoy our site as it is intended. Our cookie policy should be read in accordance with our Website Terms of Use and Privacy Policy which provide further information on how you may use our site.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or page. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit. Web beacons or other similar files can also do the same thing. We use the term “cookies” in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.

There are many functions cookies serve. For example, they can help us remember your username and preferences, analyse how well our website is performing or even allow us to recommend content we believe will be most relevant to you.

Certain cookies contain personal information – for example, if you click “remember me” when logging in, a cookie will store your username. Most cookies won’t collect information that identifies you, and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our websites, or a user’s general location.

What sort of cookies does Wealth Club use?

Generally, our cookies perform up to three different functions:

1.  Essential cookies

Some cookies are essential for the operation of our website. For example, some cookies allow us to identify authenticated users to ensure they can access the member-only pages. If a member opts to disable these cookies, they will not be able to access all the content they are entitled to.

2.  Performance cookies

We use other cookies to analyse how our visitors use our websites and to monitor website performance. This allows us to provide a high-quality experience by customising our offering and quickly identifying and fixing any issues. For example, we might use performance cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages.

3.  Functionality cookies

We use functionality cookies to remember your preferences. For example, cookies save you the trouble of typing in your username every time you access the site, and recall your customisation preferences, such as font-sizes.
