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 unique users we have, and how often they visit the site.

Unless you are signed in to looptechnology.com, these cookies cannot be used to identify individuals; they are used for statistical purposes only. If you are logged in, we will also know the details you gave to us for this, such as username and email address.

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

Registration cookies

We may use cookies set by a third party to more accurately target advertising to you, to show, for example, adverts about holidays to users who have recently visited the travel section of our site. These cookies are anonymous – they store information about the content you are browsing, but not about who you are.
