Cookie Policy

Who we are

When we refer to “now>press>play”, “we”, “us” or “the Company” in this Cookie Policy we are referring to Now Press Play Limited (company number 08031358).

Whenever you use our website at https://nowpressplay.co.uk/ (our “Site”) and our mobile application (our “App”) (the Site and the App collectively, “the Services”), information may be accessed through the use of cookies and similar technologies.

Throughout our Site we may include links to third-party websites, plug-ins, and applications. These other third-party websites may also use cookies or similar technologies in accordance with their own separate cookie policies. For privacy information relating to these other third-party websites, please consult their cookie policies as appropriate.


What are cookies? 

A cookie is a small text file which is placed onto your device (e.g. computer, smartphone, or other electronic device) when you use our Services. A cookie file is stored in your web browser and allows us or a third-party to recognise you and remember things like your personalised details or user preferences. They also help us learn more about how you use and access our Services so that we can make improvements and update features.

Cookies can be “persistent” or “session” cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your device when you go offline, while session cookies are deleted as soon as you close your web browser.


What are “similar technologies”?

We also use local storage, for storing and retrieving information on your device. This technology is similar to cookies and performs functions such as downloading an Experience to your device (which is then deleted after one month). Like cookies, local storage will either be for a “session” or “persistent”. Local storage is often used instead of cookies on devices which you use to access our Services (e.g. your Apple iOS or Android devices). 

Where we refer to “cookies” in this policy, we mean cookies or similar technologies.


How do we use cookies?

We use cookies to help us learn more about how you use and access our Services. These cookies allow us to count visits, traffic sources and the duration of visits so that we can measure and improve the performance of our Services. They help us to know which pages and Experiences are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the Site and within the App.

For further information on our use of cookies, including a detailed list of your information which we and others may collect through cookies, please see below.


Types of cookies 

The cookies we place on your device fall into the following categories:

  •  Strictly necessary cookies.  These cookies are necessary for the Services to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the Services will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
  •  Functional cookies. These cookies enable the Services to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation. They may be set by us or by third party service providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.
  •  Performance cookies. These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our Services. They help us to know which pages are the most or least popular and see how visitors move around the Services. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our Services and will not be able to monitor their performance.
  •  Targeting cookies.  These cookies may be set through our Services by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. They do not store directly personal information but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.

Third party cookies 

All of the cookies described so far in this Cookie Policy are “first party cookies”, which means they are set and controlled by now>press>play. Occasionally, third parties may set cookies on our Site which we do not control. These are called “third party cookies”. This will happen where, for example, we have included embedded content on some pages of our Site. When you visit a page with embedded content, the third-party service provider may set its own cookies on your web browser. 

This also applies if you choose to connect with our social media accounts by clicking on one of the social media buttons on our Site, as you may be sent cookies by these websites. 

Please note that we do not control these cookies and cannot access them. Cookies can only be accessed by the party who originally set them. You should therefore check the third-party websites for more information about these cookies. We have listed some of these providers below and included a link to their cookie policies:
