This Cookie Policy (the “Cookie Policy“) describes the different types of cookies or similar technologies (otherwise referred to here as “cookies”) that are used in connection with the websites and other digital properties managed by VUMA Software ADCO Pty Ltd. These digital properties are referred to here as “Digital Platforms”.

Cookies are small blocks of data created by a web server while a user is browsing a website and placed on the user’s computer or other device by the user’s web browser.

Cookies are placed on the device used to access a website, and more than one cookie may be placed on a user’s device during a session.

Cookies serve useful and sometimes essential functions on the web.

They enable web servers to store information (such as items added in the shopping cart in an online store) on the user’s device or to track the user’s browsing activity (including clicking particular buttons, logging in, or recording which pages were visited in the past). They can also be used to save for subsequent use information that the user previously entered into form fields, such as names, addresses, passwords, and payment card numbers.

Authentication cookies are commonly used by web servers to authenticate that a user is logged in, and with which account they are logged in. Without the cookie, users would need to authenticate themselves by logging in on each page containing sensitive information that they wish to access. The security of an authentication cookie generally depends on the security of the issuing website and the user’s web browser, and on whether the cookie data is encrypted.

Security vulnerabilities may allow a cookie’s data to be read by an attacker, used to gain access to user data, or used to gain access (with the user’s credentials) to the website to which the cookie belongs (see cross-site scripting and cross-site request forgery for examples).

Tracking cookies, and especially third-party tracking cookies, are commonly used as ways to compile long-term records of individuals’ browsing histories. In the context of cookies:

  • ‘Informed consent’ means that you must describe to visitors to your website what cookies are, indicate that your website uses them, and mention for what purpose you are using them. Also, a cookie notice and policy must be easy to find, read, and understand.
  • ‘An affirmative action’ means that the data subject must give a positive action indicating that they accept the cookies. A cookie notice cannot have boxes pre-checked by default, as this is not a positive action.
  • Only essential or necessary cookies do not need consent.


We use cookies to collect certain data while you are browsing the Digital Platforms, to distinguish you as a user, either for the duration of your visit (“session cookie”) or when you return (“persistent cookie”).

What if I don’t want cookies or similar tracking technologies?

You have the possibility to withhold consent or withdraw consent to all the cookies (except the Necessary ones) or manage them through the Cookies Settings available on each Digital Platform.

In addition to the Cookies Settings available on each Digital Platform, you can manage your cookie settings within your internet browser. More information is available here:

You can also withdraw your consent to the use of cookies at any time by deleting your cookies using your internet browser settings. If you block the use of cookies on your browser, some of the services and functionalities of the Digital Platform might not be available to you, such as embedded video features.

More information about cookies is available at

Please bear in mind that deleting and blocking cookies may have an impact on your user experience.

If you do not allow these cookies, you will continue to see online advertising, but that advertising will be less tailored to you.

Social Media cookies are set by social media providers and include cookies that are set by the social media services that we have added to the Digital Platforms. For example, this includes social media services that enable you to share our content with your friends and networks. They can track your browser across websites and building up a profile of your interests to show you relevant content and ads on those social media platforms. This may impact the content and messages you see on other websites you visit, including social media platforms. If you do not allow these cookies you may not be able to use or see the social media sharing too
