Vestd's Use of Cookies

Cookies serve a variety of functions and are connected to specific website functions. In some cases these can be toggled on or off, and in others they cannot. Fundamentally, cookies are used to analyse your website visit and leverage that data for marketing purposes and to improve your experience in future.

In essence, a cookie is a small text file that is stored on your local computer when visiting websites, including www.vestd.com. Without some of these cookies, our website simply wouldn’t work. As such, these are categorised as “necessary” cookies and cannot be deactivated. Other cookies are categorised as “analytics”, “advertisement”, or “functionality” cookies and you have the power to disable them if you wish to do so. Please be aware that blocking the use of any cookies may negatively impact your experience on the website and limit the services we are able to provide you with online.
