Last reviewed: 01/02/21

This Cookies Policy applies to websites and online pages operated by RepublicOf1 including but not limited to the website at the domain www.softwar.co.uk relating to RepublicOf1 games and content. These websites and pages are hereafter referred to as the “Ro1 Site(s)”.

Ro1 Sites uses cookies, as almost all websites do, to help provide you with the best experience possible. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer or mobile phone when you browse websites.

Our cookies help us to:

  • Make Ro1 Sites work as intended by us.
  • Improve the speed/security of Ro1 Sites.
  • Continuously improve Ro1 Sites for you.
  • determine the number of use Ro1 Sites.

You can choose to block cookies in your browser’s preferences. If you choose to block cookies, you may still use Ro1 Sites, but some functionality may not work as intended.

  • collect any personally identifiable information (without your express permission).
  • pass data to advertising networks.
  • pass personally identifiable data to third parties.

Granting us permission to use cookies

If the settings on your software that you are using to view the Ro1 Sites (your browser) are adjusted to accept cookies, we take this to mean that you accept cookies.

How we use cookies

Anonymous Visitor Statistics Cookies

We use cookies to compile visitor statistics such as how many people have visited the Ro1 Sites, what type of technology they are using (e.g. Mac or Windows, which helps to identify when the Ro1 site(s) isn’t working as effectively as it should for particular technologies), how long visitors spend on the Ro1 Sites and what page(s)/section(s) they look at. This helps us to continuously improve the Ro1 Sites. These so called “analytics” programs also tell us, on an anonymous basis, how people reached the Ro1 Sites (e.g. from a search engine or a direct link).

We use Google Analytics. You can use Google’s Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on if you do not wish to participate.

It may be that your concerns around cookies relate to so called “spyware”. Rather than switching off cookies in your browser, you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive.

Once again, we do not use cookies to collect any personally identifiable information (without your express permission).
