Cookie Policy

Who we are

When we refer to “The Beam Network”, “we”, “our”, “us” or “the Company” in this Cookie Policy we are referring to The Beam Network Ltd (company number 12795599).

Whenever you use our website www.thebeamnetwork.com (the “Website”), information may be accessed through the use of cookies and similar technologies.

Throughout our Website we may include links to third-party websites, plug-ins, and applications. These other third-party websites may also use cookies or similar technologies in accordance with their own separate cookie policies. For privacy information relating to these other third-party websites, please consult their cookie policies as appropriate.

What are cookies? 

A cookie is a small text file which is placed onto your device (e.g., computer, smartphone, or another electronic device) when you visit our Website. A cookie file is stored in your web browser and allows us or a third-party to recognise you and remember things like your personalised details or user preferences. They also help us learn more about how you use and access our Website so that we can make improvements and update features.

Cookies can be "persistent" or "session" cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your device when you go offline, while session cookies are deleted as soon as you close your web browser.

What are “similar technologies”?

We also use local storage, for storing and retrieving information on your device. This technology is similar to cookies and performs functions such as enabling us to provide the functions and contents of the site tailored to customers' needs, monitoring and analysing web traffic in order to understand how visitors are engaging with our site, and counting the number of times the content is viewed. This helps us to improve the content of the website.. Like cookies, local storage will either be for a “session” or “persistent”. Local storage is often used instead of cookies on devices which you use to access our Website (e.g., your Apple iOS or Android devices). 

Where we refer to “cookies” in this policy, we mean cookies or similar technologies.

How do we use cookies?

We use cookies to help us learn more about how you use and access our Website. These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so that we can measure and improve performance. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the Website.

For further information on our use of cookies, including a detailed list of your information which we and others may collect through cookies, please see below.

Types of cookies 

The cookies we place on your device fall into the following categories:

  • Strictly necessary cookies.  These cookies are necessary for the Website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in, or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the Website will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.

  • Functional cookies. These cookies enable the Website to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation. They may be set by us or by third party service providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.

  • Performance cookies. These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our Website. They help us to know which pages are the most or least popular and see how visitors move around the Website. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our Website and will not be able to monitor its performance.

  • Targeting cookies.  These cookies may be set through our Website by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. They do not store directly personal information but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet enabled device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.

Third party cookies 

All of the cookies described so far in this Cookie Policy are “first party cookies”, which means they are set and controlled by The Beam Network. Occasionally, third parties may set cookies on our Website which we do not control. These are called “third party cookies”. This will happen where, for example, we have included embedded content on some pages of our Website. When you visit a page with embedded content, the third-party service provider may set its own cookies on your web browser. 

This also applies if you choose to connect with our social media accounts by clicking on one of the social media buttons on our Website, as you may be sent cookies by these websites. 

Please note that we do not control these cookies and cannot access them. Cookies can only be accessed by the party who originally set them. You should therefore check the third-party websites for more information about these cookies. We have listed the third party providers below and included a link to their cookie policies:

Please note that if you block cookies completely, many websites will not work properly and some functionality on our Website may not work at all.
