User Consent Policy

The Bond Lifestyle website ("us", "we", or "our") uses cookies on www.jamesbondlifestyle.com (the "Service"). By using the Service, you consent to the use of cookies.

Our Cookies Policy explains what cookies are, how we use cookies, how third-parties we may partner with may use cookies on the Service, your choices regarding cookies and further information about cookies.

If it does not provide the information you were looking for, or you have any further questions about the use of cookies on the Bond Lifestyle website, please email info@jamesbondlifestyle.com.

What are 'cookies'? What is a cookie?

Cookies are small files which are stored by the browser (for example, Internet Explorer or Safari) on a user's computer. They are designed to hold a modest amount of data specific to a particular client and website, and can be accessed either by the web server or the client computer. This allows the server to deliver a page tailored to a particular user, or the page itself can contain some script which is aware of the data in the cookie and so is able to carry information from one visit to the website (or related site) to the next. You can think of it like a 'memory' for the website, so that it can recognise you when you come back and respond appropriately. You can see the cookies yourself. Most browsers have a configuration screen which allows the user to see what cookies have been stored on the computer, and optionally to delete them. Note that it is not possible for a webpage to view cookies set by other sites, as this would represent a privacy and security problem.

How does the Bond Lifestyle website use cookies?

A visit to a page on the Bond Lifestyle website may generate the following types of cookie:

Performance cookies
Anonymous analytics cookies
Geotargetting cookies
Third party advertising cookies

Performance cookies

This type of cookie remembers your preferences for tools found on the Bond Lifestyle website, so you don't have to re-set them each time you visit. Examples include volume settings for our video player - whether you see the latest or the oldest article comments first - video streaming speeds that are compatible with your browser

Anonymous analytics cookies:

We use cookies to compile visitor statistics (via Google Analytics), such as how many people have visited our website; what type of technology they are using (e.g. Mac or Windows, which helps to identify when our site isn't working as it should for particular technologies); how long they spend on the site; what page they look at, etc. This helps us to continuously improve our website. These programs also tell us how people reached this site (e.g. from a search engine) and whether they have been here before, helping us to put more money into developing our services for you instead of marketing spend.

  • Every time someone visits our website, software provided by another organisation generates an 'anonymous analytics cookie'.
  • These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before.
  • Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies and, if you don't, we generate new ones.
  • This allows us to track how many individual users we have, and how often they visit the site.

Geotargetting cookies

These cookies are used by software which tries to work out what country you are in from the information supplied by your browser when you click on a web page. This cookie is completely anonymous, and we only use it to help target our content – such as whether you see our UK or US home page – and advertising.

Third party advertising cookies

A lot of the advertisements you see on the Bond Lifestyle are provided by other organisations. Some of these organisations use their own anonymous cookies to track how many people have seen a particular ad, or to track how many people have seen it more than once.

The companies that generate these cookies have their own privacy policies, and we have no access to read or write these cookies. These organizations may use their cookies to anonymously target advertising to you on other websites, based on your visit to Bond Lifestyle.

Advertisers include Google, Amazon and Affiliate Programs like Commission Junction and Rakuten.

How Google uses data when you use our partners' sites or apps.

Other third party cookies

On some pages of our website, other organisations may also set their own anonymous cookies. They do this to track the success of their application, or to customise the application for you. Because of how cookies work, our website cannot access these cookies, nor can the other organisation access the data in cookies we use on our website.

For example, when you share an article using a social-media sharing button (for example, Facebook) on Bond Lifestyle, the social network that has created the button will record that you have done this.

How do I turn cookies off?

It is usually possible to stop your browser accepting cookies, or to stop it accepting cookies from a particular website. However, we cannot tell if you are signed in without using cookies, so you would not be able to post comments.

All modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. You can usually find these settings in the 'options' or 'preferences' menu of your browser. To understand these settings, the following links may be helpful, or you can use the 'Help' option in your browser for more details.

Cookie settings in Chrome
Cookie settings in Firefox
Cookie settings in Internet Explorer
Cookie settings in Safari web and iOS

If you are primarily concerned about third party cookies generated by advertisers, you can turn these off by going to the Your Online Choices site.

You can also visit the trade body representing these advertising platforms for more information: Network Advertising Initative.

They have provided a site where you can control all third-party online advertising. Please note that there are many more networks listed on this site than those that we use at Bond Lifestyle.
