When you visit the Communisis plc corporate website via the internet in order to assist you with your web browsing experience, especially when revisiting our website, the site will sometimes place a small amount of information on your device, for example, your computer, laptop, tablet or mobile phone. These include small files known as ‘cookies’. They cannot be used to identify you personally. These pieces of information are used to improve your web browsing experience by, for example:

  • enabling a service to recognise your device so you do not have to give the same information several times during one task or browsing sessions

  • analysing anonymous data to help us understand how people interact with the website so we can make improvements and to assist us in developing the website in an informed way for our online users.
