However, please note that since Pilot involves several connected services, it could take a few working days for all our services and systems to be up to date. In that case you might still receive a few last messages from us while we finish processing your request.
Opting out of marketing messages does not stop other messages essential to us performing our contract such as order notifications or dispatch confirmations.
Seeing adverts for Pilot online
We use online advertising to both attract new customers to our business and also keep existing customers aware of our latest products, services, promotions and content.
As many online businesses do, we target Pilot ads such as website banners and images and other types of ads to you when you visit other websites and apps.
This involves various online marketing networks, ad exchanges and advertising service providers and related technologies like cookies, pixels, advertising tags, web beacons and mobile identifiers. An example of specific service we may use from time to time is Facebook’s Custom Audience service.
The ads shown via these advertising technologies will be based on information we hold about you, or your previous use of Pilot (for example, your Pilot search history, products viewed and added to bag and the content you read on Pilot) or on Pilot ads you have clicked on previously.
