Cookie Policy

BNP Paribas is committed to keeping your data safe.

And we want to be sure that you understand how we place, use and store cookies on your device when you use our website and/or our app Creation.co.uk (the “site”) and you’re given the option to manage and to delete cookies.

 

What is a cookie?

Cookies are small text, image or software files that are placed on your device when you access our site. The word “device”, when used in this Cookie Policy, refers to computers, smartphones, tablets and all other devices used for accessing the internet.

Cookies may be either: (i) session specific, meaning that they are deleted from your device once the session and browser are closed or (ii) persistent, meaning that they will remain on your device until they are removed.

Cookies perform a number of useful functions, such as to: 

  • Authenticate and identify you on our site in order to provide you with services that you have requested
  • Enhance the security of the site, including to prevent fraudulent use of login credentials and protect user data from access by unauthorised parties
  • Send you personalised advertising based on your browsing history and your preferences online  
  • Monitor your use of our site in order to improve them
  • Enhance your user experience by adapting and tailoring the content on the site to your interest and providing more relevant BNP Paribas ads and content to you on non-BNP Paribas sites:
  • Remember information that you provided to us (e.g. to automatically populate forms with information that you have previously provided to us so that you can log on more quickly)
  • Keep track of your preferences and settings in your use of our sites (e.g. time zone etc.)

 

What kind of information can be stored in a cookie?

The information stored by the cookies on your device may relate to the following: 

  • the webpages you’ve visited on that device 
  • the ads you’ve clicked on the type of browser you use 
  • your IP address
  • and any other information that you have provided on our website and/or app. 

Cookies may contain personal data. Where we use cookies which collect your personal data, this is covered by our Data Protection Notice.

 

Who places the cookies on your device?

When you select which types of cookies you allow on your device, the cookies may be placed directly by us or by one of our partners. 

This means that when you authorise the installation of certain so-called “third-party” cookies on your device, our partners will also be able to access the information they contain (such as, for example, your browsing statistics when you allow third-party analysis cookies) within the respect of our data protection Notice and those of our partners.

 

How can you manage cookies?

To see the different categories of cookies that we use on the site and control what cookies we deploy on your browser, you can use the cookie management module that pops up when you landed on the site or you can access it through the cookie settings button under the Your Cookie Settings section. You can modify your preferences, withdraw or give again your consent at any time. 

Please note that the use of strictly necessary cookies for the proper functioning of the site do not require your consent. This is why the option "strictly necessary cookies" is pre-checked in our cookie management tool and is not optional.

By refusing certain types of cookies (preference cookies for example), we will not be able to optimise your user experience on our site and some parts may not function properly. 

By default, we save your cookie choices on a device for a maximum of 12 months. If you change your mind about the preferences you have expressed regarding cookies, you can update your choices at any time, by following through the cookie settings button under the below Cookie List. We will ask you to make a choice again every 12 months.

 

Hotjar screen tracking

We use Hotjar in order to better understand our users’ needs and to optimise this service and experience. Hotjar is a technology service that helps us better understand our users’ experience (e.g. how much time they spend on which pages, which links they choose to click, what users do and don’t like, etc.) and this enables us to build and maintain our service with user feedback. Hotjar uses cookies and other technologies to collect data on our users’ behaviour and their devices. This includes a device’s IP address (processed during your session and stored in a de-identified form), device screen size, device type (unique device identifiers), browser information, geographic location (country only), and the preferred language used to display our website. Hotjar stores this information on our behalf in a pseudonymised user profile. Hotjar is contractually forbidden to sell any of the data collected on our behalf. You may opt out of Hotjar by visiting https://www.hotjar.com/opt-out

Creation Consumer Finance Limited and Creation Financial Services Limited may change this cookie policy from time to time. When such a change is made, we will post a revised version online at www.creation.co.uk. Changes will be effective from the point at which they are posted. Please do review this cookie policy periodically so you’re aware of any changes.
