What our Cookies Policy covers

We may place a text file called a “cookie” in the browser files of your computer or mobile device. The cookie itself does not contain personal information although it will enable us to relate your use of Adam Hewitt Limited websites or Electronic Services to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided. But the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can’t read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other websites.

We may use cookies to track user traffic patterns on Adam Hewitt Limited websites or Electronic Services, but we do not use cookies to track your use of third party websites.

In addition, we use encrypted cookies to authenticate the user on each page after the user logs on to our website or Electronic Services. It is not possible to log in to our members’ area without accepting these cookies – this means you cannot bid on Adam Hewitt Limited lots without accepting these cookies.

Accepting the log-in cookies will enable you to access the members’ area of our website or Electronic Services, but some other features and services (for example creating customised searches for vehicles) may not function properly or conveniently if your other cookies are disabled.

You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. Alternatively, you can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies; this means you will receive the warning message with each cookie.
