Cookies can generally be put into one of the following categories: strictly necessary (‘essential’), analytics, functionality and advertising. The list below provides more information about each category.
Strictly necessary ‘essential’ cookies
These cookies are essential to make our website work. They enable you to move around the site and use its features. Necessary services, like the ability to access secure areas cannot be provided without these cookies.
These cookies collect information about how people use our site, such as which pages are most frequently visited and how people are moving from one link to another. We also collect estimated high-level demographic information on users, eg age (in bands such as 25-34), and also assumed interests (eg sports fan). This demographic data is collected by Google based on your other browsing activity, so it is an indicative measure rather than conclusive information. Information these cookies collect on our open site is grouped together with information from other people’s use of our site on an aggregated basis; your activity is not personally identifiable. Overall, these cookies provide us with analytical information about how our site is performing and how we can improve it.
These cookies allow us to remember choices you make and tailor our site to provide enhanced features and content to you. For example, these cookies can be used to remember your user name.
These cookies are used to deliver advertisements that are more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They remember that you have visited a website and this information may be shared with other organisations, such as advertising partners. This means after you have been to our site you may see some advertisements about our services elsewhere on the internet.
First and third party cookies
First party cookies are cookies that we control and place on your device. Third party cookies are cookies that another party controls but are placed on your device when you visit our site. For example, we use Google Analytics cookies to gather information about the user experience on our website and the LinkedIn Insight Tag to provide you with relevant content when on the LinkedIn site, across your devices.
