Cookie Policy & Control

This page was last updated on June 1st, 2017. Whenever this Policy is changed in a material way, you will be asked to renew your cookie consent.

We, Kingspan Holdings (Ireland) Limited and its affiliates (“Kingspan”), use cookies on our website, which amongst other things, help us to improve your experience of our website and to ensure that it performs as you expect it to. Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information, which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device by websites that you visit. They can improve your experience of using a website, for example, by remembering your preference settings and tracking your use of a website so that it can be improved to meet your needs. By doing that they can also collect information, that may be deemed personal data in some countries, about you and/or the way you use this website. Click here to access a list of those Data Controllers and contact details for them.  We also have cookies on our website that are set by third parties – not Kingspan. There is more information on control of third party functionality cookies on our website at the end of this page.

Kingspan's cookies

Kingspan would like to have your consent to send cookies to your computer or mobile device unless the cookies are strictly necessary to provide services to you. If you do not agree with saving strictly necessary cookies on your device, please do not continue browsing our webpage.

You can set your cookie preferences for Kingspan's cookies on the following basis at any time by clicking here.


 

You can withdraw your consent to our cookies at any time even if you have previously consented in accordance with the above cookie preference options. However, please do remember that if you do not consent to any cookies our website will not work, and if you do not consent to our functionality cookies parts of our website will not work.   Consent for Kingspan’s cookies will last for 12 months, after which you will be asked to renew your cookie consent.

The table below explains what cookies we use on our website, why we use them and whether they are strictly necessary or another type of cookie e.g. "functionality" or "analytical" cookies. We also state in the table whether a cookie is a "persistent" or "session" cookie. The difference is that:
  • Persistent cookies remain on your device between browsing sessions. They are activated each time you visit the website that created that particular cookie. For example, where a "persistent cookie" is used on a website to remember your log-in details, you will not need to enter those details each time you visit that website.
  • Session cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when you open the browser window and finishes when you close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.
Kingspan’s strictly necessary cookies

Strictly necessary cookies are essential to enable you to receive a service on a website. For example, cookies that help us comply with the law (e.g. such as to keep your information safe). We would not be able to operate our website without using the "strictly necessary" cookies listed below.
 
Name Purpose Persistent /  Session
CMSCookieLevel All Kentico cookies are associated with a level.  The higher the level, the more intrusive the cookie. This cookie stores the level with which the user has indicated they are comfortable, as selected on this page. Persistent
ASP.NET_SessionId A session is a period of interaction between a user and a website. The session expires when the browser is closed. This cookie is used to ensure the site behaves consistently between page loads in a given session (used for functionality such as a shopping cart which needs to persist for the duration of the user’s session). Without this cookie the site is essentially ‘stateless’ so can’t know two page requests are from the same individual. Session
ks_cp_accept This cookie remembers the fact that a visitor has cleared the cookie consent popup notification. It prevents the popup being displayed repeatedly. Persistent
 
Kingspan's functionality  cookies

Functionality cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your log in details). They also enable enhanced, more personal features, e.g. such as remembering your preferred language on multi-lingual websites.

Information collected by "functionality" cookies may or may not be anonymised, but they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites. 
 
Name Purpose Persistent / Session
.ASPXFORMSAUTH If a user is logged in to the website this cookie is used to remember, in a secure way, their log-in status and identity, throughout the session.  In essence this does the same as the ASP.NET_SessionId cookie, but with that extra element of identification. Session
CMSPreferredCulture Stores the visitor's preferred content culture. On multi-lingual websites this cookie ensures a language selected by a user becomes their default for future visits. Persistent
 
Kingspan's analytical cookies

Analytics cookies records information about, amongst other things, the webpages you have visited on our site, how long you have spent on our site and the frequency with which you visit our site.
Information collected by "analytical" cookies may or may not be anonymised, but they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites. 
 
Name Purpose Persistent / Session
VisitorStatus This cookie indicates if the user  has visited the website before. Used for tracking the visitor statistic in Web analytics. Persistent
Campaign If the individual has arrived on the site as part of a campaign configured in Kentico, this cookie stores the campaign ID so interactions can be associated as part of that campaign monitoring. Persistent
TrackedCampaigns This cookie stores the IDs of all campaigns currently being tracked for this user (refer to Campaign cookie for more info). Persistent
UrlReferrer This cookie stores the URL from which this this visitor arrived at the site. Persistent
CurrentContact This cookie stores a unique identifier for the current visitor, used to track activities on the website. The identifier is associated with a database record which can be used to store any personal information submitted by the website. Persistent
CMSAB<ABtestname> AB tests are a practice of serving different versions of the same page to different users and monitoring how the versions perform against defined targets. This cookie is used to track the results for any AB tests being run on pages the user has visited. This will also ensure page content is consistent for the visitor (i.e. they’re not served different versions of the AB test page on different visits). Persistent
CMSMVT<mvtestname> This cookie is similar to CMSAB<ABtestname> but used for multivariate testing (where parts of the page have different versions as opposed to the entire page). Persistent
CMSNoTestMVT<templateid> This cookie stores certain properties of the user’s browser and context (such as language, device etc.).  It is used in providing accessibility standards. Persistent
CMSBodyClass This cookie provides accessibility standards. Persistent
