Changes To This Privacy Notice:
We keep our privacy notice under regular review. This privacy notice was last updated on May 25th 2018.
Advisory Excellence may use a “session cookie” to identify your browser “session” as you move between pages on the site and perform activities. The site cookie allows our site to recognise each subsequent request from your browser as being the same browser that made the initial request to our site.
By knowing that each subsequent request is related to the first, our site is able to track your actions as you move around the site and to provide interactive features. By analysing how our site is being used in general, we can improve the site experience for future visitors. Should you experience any problems in using our site, our site developers may be able to use this information to track down your specific “user journey” and investigate and fix any issues that might arise.
Each page on our site is generated by a sophisticated Content Management System (CMS). This system may provide a number of interactive features where your experience may be tailored according to your past activity on the site. Such features require the “session cookie” to operate. As we improve our site over time, more advanced features may be added that also require a “session cookie” to operate.
How To Control & Delete Cookies:
Cookies are a very small text file that is stored on your device (for example, your computer or your mobile) by your web browser. It contains a simple text code that your browser sends back to our site each time you browse to a new page. This allows the site to look up your specific session and associate data for that session with your browser. The data itself is not stored in your cookie but on the server(s) operating the site.
You may restrict or block the cookies which are set by advisoryexcellence.com, or any other site, through your browser settings.

Please be aware that restricting cookies may have a negative impact on the functionality of advisoryexcellence.com.
