USE OF COOKIES

The Platform uses cookies. You can deactivate or block cookies by opting out and closing the browser window or by changing the settings within your Browser.

About cookies

Cookies are files, often including unique identifiers, that are sent by web servers to web browsers, and which may then be sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies can be used by web servers to identity and track users as they navigate different pages on a Platform, and to identify users returning to a Platform. Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies. A persistent cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which will be stored by the browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date). A session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed. 

Cookies on the Platform

We use both session cookies and persistent cookies on the Platform. 

How we use cookies

Cookies do not contain any information that personally identifies you, but personal information that we store about you may be linked, by us, to the information stored in and obtained from cookies. The cookies used on the Platform include those which are strictly necessary cookies for access and navigation, cookies that track usage (performance cookies), remember your choices (functionality cookies), and cookies that provide you with targeted content or advertising.

We may use the information we obtain from your use of our cookies for the following purposes:

  1. to recognise your computer when you visit the Platform
  2. to track you as you navigate the Platform, and to enable the use of any facilities
  3. to improve the Platform’s usability
  4. to analyse the use of the Platform
  5. in the administration of the Platform
  6. to personalise the Platform for you, including targeting advertisements which may be of particular interest to you.

  1. to track your browser across multiple Platforms
  2. to build a profile of your web surfing
  3. to target advertisements which may be of particular interest to you.

Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many Platforms. If you block cookies, you may not be able to use certain features on the Platform.

Deleting cookies

  2. in Firefox, you can delete cookies by, first ensuring that cookies are to be deleted when you “clear private data” (this setting can be changed by clicking “Tools”, “Options” and “Settings” in the “Private Data” box) and then clicking “Clear private data” in the “Tools” menu.
