Collection and Use of Technical Information
Cookies are small pieces of information, stored in simple text files, and placed on your computer by websites.

Vhi.ie uses "session" cookies to enable certain parts of our website to work, e.g. to remember your choices as you work through an online quote or online purchase, or when you log in to MyVhi. These cookies only last for the duration of your browsing session on Vhi.ie.

Vhi.ie uses Google Analytics which uses cookies to monitor and understand traffic on our website, what pages are being viewed, and where our online visitors are coming from (e.g. search engines, online ads etc). These cookies collect information anonymously and report website trends without identifying individual visitors.

Vhi.ie also uses targeting and advertising cookies from third parties such as Google's DoubleClick. These cookies are used, for example, to deliver advertising that is relevant to you when you visit other websites, and to measure the effectiveness and conversion rates of advertising campaigns. You can access more information on how Google uses cookies here.Vhi.ie uses a combination of session cookies and persistent cookies to deliver some elements of the site's functionality. Vhi.ie makes use of third party cookies to help complete web optimization activities. These activities include but are not limited to targeted experiments as well as visitor-level reporting data. Optimizely is the tool of choice for Vhi.ie in completing this. Optimizely creates and sends first and third-party cookies to the user's browser. Some of these cookies are persistent and others are session-based, but in all cases the cookies collect anonymous usage data that provides no value outside the application.
