Last Updated: August 2023

This website like many others, uses cookies, pixel tags, web beacons, and other web tracking technologies to help us find out more about how visitors use our site and to enhance, customise and optimise your browsing experience. The website may also use cookies to understand more about you, so we can provide you with a more optimised and personalised browsing experience.

You can find out more about cookies and how to manage them in the information below. You can change your cookie settings and disable some or all cookies on the website at any time by clicking on the below button:

You can also change your browser settings so that cookies cannot be placed on your device.

What is a cookie?

A “cookie” is a small piece of data (text file) that a website – when visited by a user – asks your browser to store on your device in order to remember information about you, such as your language preference or login information. A “cookie” allows the website to store tokens of information (an “identifier”) in your browser in order to make the website work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the website. Cookies can also ensure any adverts you see online are tailored and personalised in accordance with your interests.

There are two broad categories of cookies:

  • First party cookies, served directly by us to your device.
  • Third-party cookies, which are served by a third party on our behalf.

Cookies can remain on your computer or mobile device for different periods of time:

  • Session cookies, which exist only while your browser is open and deleted automatically once you close your browser
  • Permanent cookies, which remain after your browser is closed

What are web beacons?

Web beacons are pieces of script added to the source code of websites to identify, collect and, on occasion, store website user activity.

Sharp may sometimes use visitor identification technology such as “web beacons”, or similar to track the success of our marketing efforts. Web beacons anonymously count visitors who have come to the website after being exposed to Sharp ads or clicking a search engine result on a third-party site. Certain actions that you take on our site e.g., form submission, page views and clicks, allow the visitor identification technology to connect cookies to an existing profile or create a new profile which helps us to improve our marketing efforts. If you visit our site from a company related IP address, we will have visibility of the company name only. Please note, this type of performance tracking, is only enabled upon acceptance of the marketing cookies. We do not use this technology to collect or access your personal information and it is only used to compile aggregated statistics about visitors who come to the website to understand the effectiveness of our ads and search engine ranking performance.
