Telmap uses various technologies to help improve the efficiency of our websites, including your experience when browsing our sites. These technologies include cookies, clear GIFs, web bugs and web beacons.
What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small file - usually consisting of letters and numbers - placed on your computer, tablet, phone, or similar device, when you use that device to visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
What are cookies used for?
Different types of cookies are used to do different things.
We may use the following types of cookies:
- Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website (for example, to enable you to log into secure areas of our website or use a shopping cart).
- Analytical/performance cookies. These cookies allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us improve the way our website works (for example, by ensuring that visitors are finding what they are looking for easily).
- Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
BY USING OUR WEBSITES, YOU AGREE THAT WE CAN PLACE THESE TYPES OF COOKIES ON YOUR DEVICE.
How long do cookies stay on my device?
Some cookies operate from the time you visit a Telmap website to the end of that particular web-browsing session. These cookies expire and are automatically deleted when you close your internet browser. These cookies are called “session” cookies.
Some cookies will stay on your device between browsing sessions – they do not expire when you close your browser. These cookies are called “persistent” cookies. The length of time a persistent cookie stays on your device varies from cookie to cookie.
Who puts the cookies on my device?
Cookies may be placed on your device by Telmap as the website operator. These cookies are called “first party” cookies. Some cookies may be placed on your device by a party other than Telmap. These cookies are called “third party” cookies. For example, when we use a social media plugin (such as Facebook) to enable you to interact with your social network or when we embed content sourced from third party sites (such as YouTube videos).
How do I control which cookies are placed on my device?
You can decide whether or not to accept cookies. One way you can do this is through your internet browser’s settings. Most internet browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. (Please note that if you use your browser settings to block all cookies you may not be able to access parts of our website.) The following websites provide information on how to adjust the cookies settings on some popular browsers:
You can also use a browser plug-in such as Ghostery
from Evidon Inc. or the Tracking Protection List
from TRUSTe. (A browser plug-in is a piece of software which adds extra capabilities to your browser - for example, to play video or scan for viruses.)
Adobe Flash Player is software for viewing multimedia on a computer. Websites which use Adobe Flash may store flash cookies on user’s devices to remember settings, preferences, and usage similar to other types of cookies. Telmap may use Flash to provide special content such as video clips or animation. You can access Flash management tools from Adobe’s website

What other technologies does Telmap use to help improve the efficiency and user experience of its website?
We may use transparent electronic images called “clear GIFs”, “Web bugs” or “Web beacons”. This technology counts the number of users who visit a particular Telmap webpage from specific banner advertisements outside the Telmap website or who clicked on links or graphics included in email newsletters received from Telmap. We will not use this technology to collect or access your personal information. Rather we may use this technology as a tool to compile aggregated statistics about how Telmap websites are used.
