For the purposes of this document, cookies also include tracking pixels – these are clear graphic images (typically one pixel in size) that are loaded when you visit our website or open an email from us. These tracking pixels can be used to check whether you have clicked or opened an email from us or visited our website.

First-party and third-party cookies
These types of cookies are placed by a web domain (i.e. the website displayed in the URL window). First-party cookies are set by a website being visited by the user at the time. Third-party cookies are set by a domain other than that of the website being visited by the user. For example, if a user visits a website and another entity sets the cookie through that website, this would be a third-party cookie.
These cookies remain on a user’s device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the website which created that particular cookie.
Session cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.
We may use third-party service providers (Service Providers) to:
When you access the Qudos Bank website after viewing a Qudos Bank advertisement on a third-party website or clicking a link in an email sent to you by us, the Service Provider may collect information on how you use the Qudos Bank website (e.g. which pages you have viewed), which may include whether you complete an online application. This information (together with the above information collected by the Service Provider) is then disclosed to Qudos Bank by the Service Provider.
The Service Provider and Qudos Bank use this information to perform statistical analysis of aggregate user behaviour, which may include the collection of personal information.
In addition, Qudos Bank also uses web analytics service providers to collect information on how you use the Qudos Bank website, using cookies to collect information similar to that collected by the Service Provider.
We use the above analyses to measure advertising effectiveness and relative consumer interest in the various areas of the Qudos Bank website. As a general rule, personal information may be collected in this process. If this occurs, and the collection is by the Service Provider, it is required under their arrangements with Qudos Bank to maintain the privacy and confidentiality of that personal information.
