TIDY uses technologies on our website and mobile service (which we'll call the “Services”) to collect information that helps us improve your online experience.  In this Cookie Policy, we refer to these technologies, which include cookies, pixels, web beacons, and gifs, collectively as “cookies.”  This policy explains the different types of cookies used in the Services and how you can control them.  We may change this Cookie Policy at any time:  please take a look at the “LAST REVISED” legend at the top of this page to see when this Cookie Policy was last revised.  Any amendments to this Cookie Policy will come into effect within 30 days from the "LAST REVISED" date unless you contact us before that date and the parties engage in a genuine dispute regarding the changes.  By using the Services and viewing the cookie notice that appears on the Services, you agree that we can store and access cookies as described in this policy.  

This cookie policy will be supplemented by a cookie notification banner, which will give you further information about TIDY’s use of cookies.

We hope that this policy helps you understand, and feel more confident about, our use of cookies.  If you have any further queries, please contact us at frontdesk@gotidy.com.

This cookie policy forms part of our privacy policy, which you can review at http://www.gotidy.com/privacy and which we encourage you to review as well as this document.

1.          What is a cookie?

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer or mobile device.  They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work in a better, more efficient way.  They can do this because websites can read and write these files, enabling them to recognize you and remember important information that will make your use of a website more convenient (e.g., by remembering your user preferences).  


Below we list the different types of cookies we may use on the Services.

Essential Cookies.  These cookies are essential to the operation of our website in order to enable you to move around it and to use its features.  Without these cookies, services you have asked for -  such as accessing secure areas of the website or paid for content -  cannot be provided.  These cookies are essential for using the website and therefore cannot be turned off without severely affecting your use of the website.

Essential cookies in the Services may include:

  • DgUOO - Used to help users navigate within the website, access secure areas of website,  and view account information.  You can control these cookies via your browser setting but please note that the Services may not function smoothly if you do. 


Performance Cookies.  Performance cookies, which often include analytics cookies, collect information about your use of the Services and enable us to improve the way it works.  For example, performance cookies show us which are the most frequently visited pages on the website, allow us to see the overall patterns of usage on the Services, help us record any difficulties you have with the Services and show us whether any advertising is effective or not.  We also use cookies to help you navigate within the website and travel back to pages.

Performance cookies on this Services may include:


Functionality Cookies.  In some circumstances, we may use functionality cookies.  Functionality cookies allow us to remember the choices you make on the Services and to provide enhanced and more personalized features, such as customizing a certain webpage, remembering if we have asked you to participate in a promotion and for other services you request, like watching a video or commenting on a blog.  All of these features help us to improve your visit to the Services.

Targeting or Advertising Cookies.  We and our service providers may use targeting or advertising cookies to deliver ads that we believe are more relevant to you and your interests.  For example, we may use targeting or advertising cookies to limit the number of times you see the same ad on our Services and to help measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns.  These cookies remember what you have looked at on the Services and we may share this information with other organizations, such as advertisers.

For more information about targeting and advertising cookies and how you can opt out, you can visit http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices or http://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/index.html.

Flash Cookies.  We may, in certain situations, use Adobe Flash Player to deliver special content, such as video clips or animation. To improve your user experience, Local Shared Objects (commonly known as “Flash cookies”) are employed to provide functions such as remembering your settings and preferences.  Flash cookies are stored on your device, but they are managed through an interface different from the one provided by your web browser.  This means it is not possible to manage Flash cookies at the browser level, in the same way you would manage cookies. Instead, you can access your Flash management tools from Adobe’s website directly.  The Adobe website provides comprehensive information on how to delete or disable Flash cookies  see http://www.adobe.com/security/flashplayer for further information.  Please be aware that if you disable or reject Flash cookies for the Services, you may not be able to access certain features, such as video content or services that require you to sign in.    


In some circumstances, we may work with third parties to provide services on the Services.   For example, third-party advertisers and other organizations may use their own cookies to collect information about your activities on the Services and/or any advertisements you have clicked on.  This information may be used by them to serve advertisements that they believe are most likely to be of interest to you based on content you have viewed.  Third-party advertisers may also use this information to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements.  We do not control these cookies and to disable or reject third-party cookies, please refer to the relevant third party’s website.  You can also learn more about controlling cookies in section 4 below. 


4.  How do I control cookies?

You may refuse to accept cookies from the Services at any time by activating the setting on your browser which allows you to refuse cookies.  You can refuse to accept Flash cookies from the Services using Adobe’s Flash management tools at http://www.adobe.com/security/flashplayer.  Further information about the procedure to follow in order to disable cookies can be found on your Internet browser provider’s website via your help screen.  You may wish to refer to http://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/index.html for information on commonly used browsers.  Please be aware that if cookies are disabled, not all features of the Services may operate as intended.
