Cookies are small text files that are sent to and stored on your computer, smartphone or other device when you visit a site. Cookies are useful because they allow a site to recognise your device. We use several different types of cookie, which we call "essential cookies", "functionality and performance cookies". Each one works in a slightly different way
The cookies we use are completely safe. In fact, many of them are used purely to provide important security features like protecting your data and your accounts.
The cookies we use cannot look into your computer, smartphone or web-enabled device and obtain information about you or your family or read any material kept on your hard drive.
Our cookies cannot be used by anyone else who has access to the computer to find out anything about you, other than the fact that someone using the computer may have visited a certain website. Our cookies do not in any way compromise the security of your Water Plus account.
Cookies can also allow us to tailor the content of our website to suit you.
