The cookie policy has been updated to provide an updated list of all cookies used on this site.

This Cookie Policy describes the different types of cookies and similar technologies that may be applied on the An Post Insurance site.

Please note – if you click on any of the links included in this Cookie Policy, you will be redirected to a website operated by the host of that website, and will be subject to the terms and conditions of that site.

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. Those cookies are set by us and called first-party cookies. We also use third-party cookies – which are cookies from a domain different than the domain of the website you are visiting and these are primarily used for our advertising and marketing efforts.

Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device. You can find more information about cookies at: www.allaboutcookies.org and  www.youronlinechoices.eu.

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improve your website experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.

Most Sites you visit will use cookies in order to improve your user experience by enabling that website to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’). The lifespan of each cookie informs you how long the cookie will remain on your device. This will vary depending between session cookies and persistent cookies.

Further information about the types of cookies that are used on this Site is set out below.

By choosing your cookie preferences in our Cookie Preference Centre you are agreeing to our use of cookies as preferred by you, and the cookies notice at the top of your browser will disappear.
