Cookie Policy

Our Use of Cookies

When you visit a Geneva Bell (GB) website, we will use cookies to give you the best experience on our website (and to keep it free!). Cookies are small text files stored on your device. The information collected does not usually directly identify you; oftentimes, the information is tied to a cookie ID, advertising ID, IP address, or similar online/device identifier.

The specific types of cookies served through our website and the purposes they perform are described below.

Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies are necessary for our GB sites to function or to enable our affiliate program, and cannot be switched off in our systems. They do not store any personally identifiable information.

These cookies are set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services (e.g., submitting an GB site URL into your browser, clicking an affiliate link to one of our marketing landing pages).

They ensure the proper technical functioning of such service (e.g., carrying out necessary transmissions over the internet, ensuring proper attribution to affiliates who have referred you, showing a website version that has a broadband-related data quantity corresponding to that of your Internet connection, changing from http to https as appropriate, etc.).

More Information on Affiliate Program Cookies: Where you have landed on one of our pages due to a link provided by our trusted affiliates, a cookie is set by our referral marketing provider as necessary for the affiliate to get credit for referring you and for you to get any bonuses or rewards that the affiliate may have offered you for following their referral link. These cookies are what are called ‘third-party’ cookies since they are set by Ambassador, our affiliate marketing platform. They are listed in the following table. If you do not allow these cookies (e.g., through browser settings or our cookie privacy manager), some parts of the site will not work.
