Cookies Policy

Last updated: 29th July 2022

Orbit is a networking solution that allows users to interact with the community through posts, forums, events and many more. Our approach to privacy is to make our data practices as transparent as possible. We have tried to avoid using legal or technical jargon as much as possible.

This Cookie Policy describes what cookies are, how we use them, and which sorts of cookies are stored on your device when you visit our website.

This Cookie Policy is not intended to cover how we handle your personal information. Please visit our Privacy Policy for more details on how we handle your personal information.

After your initial visit to the Website, we may change the cookies. However, this cookies policy will always allow you to know who is placing cookies for what purpose and give you the means to disable them, so you should check it from time to time

What Are Cookies?

A cookie is a small file containing a string of characters sent to your computer when you visit a website. When you revisit the site, the cookie allows that site to recognise your browser. Cookies may store user preferences and other information.

Cookies provide a convenience feature to save time or tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise pages on our website or register for the Subscription Service, a cookie helps us recall your specific information on subsequent visits. When you return to the same website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the customised features.

Cookies can be classified in several different ways. For instance:

First-party and third-party cookies:

There are two types of cookies: first-party cookies and third-party cookies. We place first-party cookies on your device directly. For example, we use first-party cookies to customise our website based on your browser's language preferences and better understand how you use our website. In addition, our partners and service providers may place third-party cookies on your device. Third-party cookies, for example, are used to track user numbers on our website or allow you to share content with others across social media platforms.

Session cookies:

Are temporary cookies stored in the browser’s memory until the browser is closed. Their purpose is to control which page elements are displayed to a user during a single multi-page visit to a website and improve short-term storage.

Persistent cookies:

Are longer-term cookies that the issuer tags with an expiration date. Persistent cookies can track your activity on the site that issued the cookie and any other site containing a resource published by the same site.

How And Why The Website Uses Cookies

By using https:/, you consent to cookies and other technologies according to this policy. However, we recognise that some users may want greater personal control over their visit to our website and have adjusted their settings accordingly. You can read all about this in the section below, “How to control and delete cookies”. If you disagree with such use, please do not use the website.

The cookies we use are completely safe. Many of them are used purely to provide essential security features such as protecting your data. Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better Website and service by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not.

When you use the Website, we use cookies to protect your privacy. We also apply them to provide you with the greatest possible experience on our Website. Using cookies can make it easier for you to manage your accounts, policies, or login details and apply for products and services. Also, we can use cookies to tailor the content of our website to offer you services or advertisements we think will be of interest to you.

To detect which pages are being visited, we use traffic log cookies. This allows us to analyse web page traffic statistics and develop our website and services to meet our users’ demands better. This information is only used for statistical analysis, and then it is removed from the system.

Finally, we use analytics cookies, including third-party analytics cookies, to help us improve the Website for frequent users. They help us work out what users like and don't like and how we can improve things for you.

We Use The Following Types Of Cookies:

Essential or “Strictly necessary” cookies:

These are cookies that are essential for our website to function properly. They include, for example, session cookies needed to manage the user session on the website.

Analytical/performance cookies:

These cookies allow us to count the number of visitors and the traffic sources to see how visitors move around our website. We will improve how our website functions by doing this, such as making it easier for people to find what they are looking for.

Functionality cookies:

These are used to identify you when you revisit our website. This enables us, subject to your choices and preferences, to personalise the currency on the Pricing page to your location and remember your preferences, such as language and region choice

Targeting/Advertising cookies:

These cookies keep track of your visit to our site, your pages, and your followed links. In addition, they collect information on your browsing activities and keep track of which websites you've visited. Our service providers may use this information to make advertisements more relevant to you.

We may also work with advertising networks that gather information about our website’s content and other websites and services you visit. As a result, you may see our adverts when you visit other websites or use third-party services. For more information about turning this feature off, see below or visit

For example, you will not be unable to make purchases on our website if you solely block third-party cookies.

Type of Cookies Description
Essential These cookies are necessary to help you access and move around the website and use all its features. Without these cookies, the website would not work properly, and you would not be able to use certain important features. For example, we use a cookie to keep you logged in during your visit, so the site does not require you to log in repeatedly to access different pages. We may also use essential cookies for fraud detection and prevention purposes.
You cannot turn off essential cookies through the Cookie Consent Tool, as such cookies are necessary for you to access and use the website's features.

  • The logical address of the server you are using.

What About Other Tracking Technologies, Like Web Beacons?

Cookies aren't the only method for a website or platform to recognise and track visitors. Other similar technologies, such as web beacons (sometimes known as "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs"), may be used from time to time. These small graphical files carry a unique identifier that allows us to know who has visited our Website or Platform. This will enable us to track visitor traffic patterns from one page to the next on our Website or Platform, for example, and enhance site performance. Unfortunately, these technologies rely on cookies to function correctly in many instances, so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

Non-Cookie Techniques – Email Pixels

We may also use techniques like pixels, which we don’t mark as cookies because they don’t store any info on your device.

We sometimes place pixels in emails like newsletters. A “pixel” is an electronic file the size of a single-pixel that’s placed in the email and loaded when you open it. By using email pixels, we can see if the message was delivered, if and when you read it, and what you click by email pixels.

We also receive this info about the push notifications we send you. These statistics provide us with feedback about your reading behaviour, which we use to optimise our messages and make our communications more relevant to you.

How To Manage Cookies Through The Browser

You have complete control over whether or not to accept cookies. You can exercise your cookie choices by clicking on the appropriate opt-out options in the cookie table above.

You may set or change your web browser settings to allow or reject cookies. You may still use our Website if you reject cookies, but you may be limited in your access to some functions and sections. How you can refuse cookies through your web browser, cookies to controls vary from browser to browser; you should visit your browser’s help menu for more information.

In addition, most advertising networks offer you a way to opt-out of targeted advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit or
